Animal Crossing Pocket Camp in Late November

Nintendo’s iOS and Android adventures continue late next month with Animal Crossing Pocket Camp.

I love Animal Crossing in general, it’ll be interesting to see if Pocket Camp really gives us a good experience but it looks pretty limited and full of traditional mobile game shenanigans.

There’s a shorter version of the above video at this link. Nintendo has a site to get notified when the game is out here.

The game is limited, because you’re just decorating a campsite and a camping van instead of a multi-story home and village. There’s “crafting” but it looks like just another type of in-game thing to collect and trade for furniture in addition to bells.

The animal characters are more likely to visit if you have the furniture they like best, and your character travels around to different areas trading goods and making new friends.

The shenanigans are countdown timers and in-app purchases for “leaf tickets” that act as a wildcard when you don’t have the right crafting materials, or to speed up those timers.
