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 cooldown timers and the opportunity to unlock stuff with “Lead Tickets”.
The game has multiplayer, with friends can come and visit your camp, and while there you can sell/trade items.
It will be a free download on both iOS and Android. You can pre-register for the Android version here.
