Nintendo to debut Animal Crossing game for iOS next month

Animal Crossing Mobile Will Finally Be Revealed This Week Shannon Grixti

If you're wondering how much peak nostalgia costs these days, the new Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp app will be available to download on iOS and Android for free. As opposed to original console release of the game, the mobile version puts the player in charge of a campsite instead of becoming mayor of a town. We know from screens and the game's Nintendo Direct presentation that K.K. Slider does greet players upon starting the game, and Tom Nook is, of course, running the microtransaction shop.

You'll help animals orient themselves, craft furniture and other amenities, and do what you can to attract animals to your campsite.

In the game, you'll be in charge of building a cozy campsite with friends and a number of different animals. To get friends to visit your camp site, all you have to do is send them your in-game Player ID.

Nintendo games have always been built around simple, yet engaging mechanics that would translate perfectly to the mobile marketplace. It's not too far from the Mayor like qualities of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, though there's a greater emphasis on travelling around to complete your tasks. The map is split into multiple themed areas rather than being one big, contiguous village now: you can drive your camper over to Breezy Hollow to shake some apple trees, then head down to the beach to collect sea shells and fish. You run around a map doing jobs for animals, you talk to them, they will say amusing stuff in that iconic chirpy voice, and at the end of the day you'll have scraped together enough compensation to maybe build yourself a bedside table.

Animal Crossing is played in real-time and the world will gradually change between day, evening and night just as it does around you.

The game will launch for free across both iOS and Android. As long as you make sure that your phone is set to accept files from 3rd party sources before installing; you can run the application before its official launch. The style of the game means that what happens is up to you, there are no levels or bosses here. From the outset you have the choice of collecting bells, the usual currency in the series, to purchase or craft new items as they become available.

Yesterday Nintendo announced Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. You can sign up to register for notifications when the game goes live in late November.

In Animal Crossing mobile there's a social element. By visiting the OK Motors store, you can acquire things to customize your camper, including furniture to fill the interior and paint to decorate the exterior.
