Nintendo's Next Mobile Game is 'Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp'

Placing the right items, like furniture, in your camp will attract new animal friends to join in on the fun.

The new mobile game involves players befriending animals and completing errands for them to collect rewards, which can then be used to build a customised camp site. You can build friendships with others, which includes chatting and visiting their campsites.

If you've never played Animal Crossing, it's a community simulation game. Once that's done, you can visit their campsite, view their market box (where you can trade items), or give them kudos. Instead of just buying new items, you can craft new furniture by bringing the materials to series-regular Cyrus, who'll take the raw materials and craft stylish new items.

Players will also be able to interact with their friends online, and there are a load of customisation options for how your avatar can look. You'll craft items using material you gain from completing quests from animals you meet. Your real life friends, if they have the game and your Player ID, can visit your home and vise versa.

Since Pocket Camp is free-to-play, there are inevitably in-app purchases.

But what's there at the moment feels, for all the changes to the game's presentation, like a fundamentally Animal Crossing experience.

LSU possessed the ball for more than 33 minutes, and rushed for 216 yards. "Period." said wide receiver DJ Chark. One thing is for sure: in times of sadness, people uniting through music can be an awesome thing.

Pocket Camp is pretty similar to a main Animal Crossing game.

Of course, underpinning it all is a virtual currency (Leaf Tickets) which can either be earned in-game or purchased for money.

"The intellectual property is often underestimated, but chances are Animal Crossing on mobile can become a big hit", said Serkan Toto, founder of consultant Kantan Games.

Outside of the camp, there's an island, beach, forest, river and more to explore and visit with your camper. Which takes time, and here we see the lure of real money transactions creeping in.

Players can spend real money on Leaf Tickets which shorten the time needed to craft items, more easily acquire materials, or acquire unique camper exterior designs, though this will hopefully not lead to the game being hard to play without forking over their hard-earned cash. The free-to-play game is due for release late in November for Android, and iOS. Bells are acquired by selling items like bugs and minerals.
