Nintendo has announced Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for iOS and Android-compatible mobile devices, breaking down the game in today’s Animal Crossing Mobile Direct
In it, players will have the chance to interact with their animal friends, craft furniture items, and gather resources, as they manage a campsite.
After creating your personalised campsite manager avatar – whether that be a girl or a boy – you can collect resources such as fruit and wood to hand to Cyrus to craft furniture and decorative items for your campsite, such as couches, benches, baskets, and plants. Then, once the item is finished, you can place it around your campsite or decorate your camper’s interior.
Leaf Tickets can be earned in-game or bought with real-world money and can be used to shorten the time needed to craft items, more easily acquire materials, or to acquire unique camper exterior designs.
Chatting with your animal friends or completing their requests will raise your friendship level, that, once levelled or if you decorate your campsite with their favourite items, can see them pay you a visit. Players will also have the chance to explore other areas, like a beach, forest, river, and island.
You can also send your in-game Player ID to any friends that are playing the game to see them visit your campsite, with whom you can exchange your Bells for items saved in the Market Box. And, then there’s the Market Place. This has stores run by Timmy, Tommy, and the Able Sisters, where players can purchase furniture and clothing items – with the selection at each shop rotating.
Your camper can be customised at OK Motors, whether that be by filling it with furniture or decorating the exterior, while seasonal events will, hopefully, keep your returning to the game over time – promising limited-time furniture and outfits.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will launch for free on iOS and Android mobile devices in late November.
