Nintendo has announced a new Animal Crossing game, making its way to your iPhones and Android devices. Dubbed Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, the Nintendo’s mobile game will arrive sometime in late November.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a game in which you build your own cozy camp life from scratch with the help of friends and your favorite animals. If you have played Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo, you might reconnect with more than a few old friends. Just like in other Animal Crossing series, Isabelle will guide you in your journey, along with the animals that move into your camp.
The game’s design, sound, and overall gameplay will be familiar to anyone’s who has played the full-fledged entries in the series.
You can make the place your own by crafting furniture from materials found in various areas, amenities, and other fun items for your animal friends to interact with. Your campervan home is as customizable as you would expect and you are able to meet up with other players from your friends list and trade items. As we expect, the game features free-to-play staples like countdown timers and microtransactions.
But it’s not all familiar; Pocket Camp introduces a few changes as well. Instead of Tom Nook, Pocket Camp has OK Motors, where you can purchase major upgrades that expand your RV’s interior and allow you to trick out your in-game camper. Instead of just buying new items, you can craft new furniture by bringing the materials to series-regular Cyrus, who’ll take the raw materials and craft stylish new items. Completing requests from visitors will provide you with crafting material. You can also raise the friendship levels for visiting animals by bringing your friend items they like or fulfilling specific requests.
Pocket Camp introduces Leaf Tickets, which can be “earned through regular gameplay or purchased using the real-world money.” The items “can be used to shorten the time needed to craft items, more easily acquire materials or acquire unique camper exterior designs.”
You can also play with or visit other players’ camps, as well as build new facilities. You can also trade items with real-life friends by sharing game IDs. “Random player avatars will also visit the campsite from time to time. Once someone visits, you can exchange your Bells for items saved in the Market Box.”
