In Nintendo’s Animal Crossing-dedicated direct today, we learned the details of its upcoming mobile entry, which will launch for free on iOS and Android mobile late November. You can choose to be a boy or a girl, select your skin color, eye color, and hair color, as well as choose from styles. Frankly, we were kinda surprised why they pushed the launch of the game back given that a game based on Animal Crossing could be one of Nintendo’s best on mobile.


In Pocket Camp, players manage their own campsite.

To get all the crafting materials you need in the game you’ll need to travel between settings in your camper van.

You can also go shopping at the market place for furniture & clothing items like shirts and shoes. Just like in the main games, Bells can be obtained by helping animals, shaking trees, selling captured bugs, and so on. That was a faithful phone-friendly version of a classic, so fingers crossed that Animal Crossing with survive the transformation relatively intact too. To save time, players can choose to spend real money instead of completing tasks. The in-game world cycles through morning, day, evening, and night, with different animals around during each time period. More luxurious furniture can be found in Timmy and Tommy Nook’s marketplace setup. The selection at each shop rotates, so don’t be a stranger! Your animal friends will be of assistance, and you can talk to them to receive requests. By helping others you earn rewards. Build an animal’s favourite furniture, and they’ll even stick around!

You can exchange items with your friends, get decorating ideas from them and just wander around their campsite.

After years, it seems we’re finally getting the Animal Crossing game we’ve been waiting for. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is more like Neko Atsume meets Happy Home Designer, with some elements of the traditional Animal Crossing games thrown in, to boot.
