Animal Crossing Coming To Phones As A Camping Game

By Luke Plunkett on at

Animal Crossing is coming to phones, with Nintendo tonight announcing Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

As the name might suggest, instead of taking place in a town, Pocket Camp puts you in a campground, where you run around doing chores for animals so you can build furniture and improve your stuff. And now you live in a camper van.

There’s a veneer of Animal Crossing to the whole thing, only now it’s obviously optimised for a more mobile experience, so expect cool-down timers and the opportunity to unlock stuff with “Lead Tickets”.

The game has multiplayer, with friends being able to come and visit your camp and sell/trade items with you.

It’ll be a free download on both iOS and Android and releases in November. You can pre-register for the Android version here, while the official website is here.
