The next time you go camping, make sure to bring all the essentials: a tent, a sleeping bag, s'mores and, of course, the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp game.
Initially, Nintendo wanted to launch 5 mobile titles before the end of the fiscal year 2017. Anyone looking to pre-register and receive an alert as soon as the game is released can do so on Nintendo's website.
Animal Crossing will be the third mobile game published by Nintendo within the past year.
The camp-themed mobile game takes you back to the adorable world of Animal Crossing as you work as a camp manager. You can use Leaf Tickets to get Cyrus to build things quicker.
It's not officially coming until November, but the app has gone live on the Australian Google Play and iOS App Stores, which means you can download and play it right now if you happen to live in that part of the world. Bells, the traditional Animal Crossing currency, also exist.
Prior to this, the franchise's most recent installment was Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival for Wii U. The party game wasn't exactly well-received; neither was the spinoff that directly preceded it, the Nintendo 3DS game Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. When you use one, you can visit someone else and buy items from their Market Box, visit their campsite, make friends with them, or give them kudos.
Nintendolife, a prominent source for excellent Nintendo related gaming news believes we could see an extensive Animal Crossing game.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has you customizing your own campsite with furniture. Unfortunately, players won't actually be able to build a camp in those areas. Meanwhile, you can also craft amenities and furniture. There's also a multiplayer aspect of the game, which lets you visit other players' campsites to get inspiration for your own, and even add those players as friends. And when they do, there's a new "Friendship Level" feature that shows just how much an animal likes you. These take a certain amount of time to accomplish, but if you're impatient, Leaf Tickets are available for in-game or real-life cash.
While you'll spend a lot of time talking to and helping out animal friends, other real players will randomly stop by your camp from time to time.
