Nintendo announced today that Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will release for mobile devices worldwide on November 22nd! The surprise announcement came via the franchise Twitter account.
Announced during the latest Nintendo Direct, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp takes the beloved whimsical franchise and puts it in your pocket for on-the-go fun. The core concept is still the same – live a whimsical life and interact with a wide range of animal characters brimming with personality, decorate and expand their home, and learn more about the community they are part of.
In Pocket Camp specifically, you’ll craft furniture items and gather resources while managing a campsite — all on your mobile device.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will be free-to-play, but like all other free-to-play mobile games, there will be microtransactions. These will come in the form of “Leaf Tickets,” a type of in-game currency that can be earned through regular gameplay or purchased using real-world money, which allow you to shorten the time needed to craft items, more easily acquire materials, or acquire unique camper exterior designs.
