Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Mobile Game Launches on Wednesday
Nintendo of America revealed on its official Twitter account on Sunday that its Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp mobile game collaboration with DeNA will launch worldwide on November 22. Nintendo didn’t specify if the date was for both the game’s iOS and Android platforms.
Nintendo revealed details about the game during a Nintendo Direct presentation on October 24. The title is a free-to-play game (with in-game transactions). The game allows players to create and customize the appearance of their own in-game avatar.
Players are tasked with building a campsite and attracting visitors by building attractions, amenities, and populating the campsite with better items and facilities. The game has different locations that contain different materials to be harvested, as well as different animals to trade and purchase items.
Materials can then be given to the character Cyrus to build items and amenities. Players are also able to purchase items from in-game shops. Building the item takes time.
The game has an in-game currency called Leaf Tickets — earned by completing tasks, or purchased with real money. These Leaf Tickets can be used in place of materials, or access items to immediately acquire fish, bugs, or minerals, and to speed up building.
The game runs in real-time, with time being tracked, and with scheduled in-game events and items for holidays and other special dates.
Players can swap ID numbers with each other in order to buy items and visit their campsite.
