If you are not familiar with Nintendo’s Animal Crossing franchise, you are excused even as you may want to start working on getting familiar with it. Animal Crossing has been a big hit for Nintendo despite being seen as a bit of a niche title and one that flies under the radar. That could change in about one month from now when Nintendo releases Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for Android and iOS.
In the game, players will be responsible for building a campsite in different recreational areas that can be visited. Campsites are built up through in-game play as players build furniture and other amenities for their camps. The materials and assistance of others are earned by helping animals in the game. As you come across animals, they may be doing things like looking for food. When you help them you earn Bells and craft materials. Players can also earn Leaf Tickets – used to pay craftsmen – or purchase them through in-app purchases.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is one of the titles announced by Nintendo well over a year ago. It joins Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: New Leaf from the DS and 3DS platforms, both of which sold over 11 million copies. The other titles released by Nintendo since announcing their plans to jump into the smartphone games market included Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes, both of which were extremely popular.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is available for pre-registration now in the Google Play Store and is slated to be available in late November.
