Nintendo made a special Direct recently to announce that Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will debut in late November. There is no exact release date yet, but pre-registration progress on iOS and Android is now available.
In Pocket Camp players will have a camp where they will be dedicated to creating or improving different furniture. According to Nintendo, you can customize your character or camp as much as you want, as there will be a lot of elements to build.
To obtain building elements, players must complete certain missions. Once they have the materials, they will only need to go with the blacksmith Cyrus, who will make new furniture.
If the camps are personalized with important pieces the rest of the animals will want to visit, and with that will increase the level of friendship. Players will know which elements are most eye-catching, something that will be useful when building. In addition, there will be a multiplayer feature that will allow you to visit the camp for other users.
Although it will be possible to advance the same game mechanics, Nintendo will offer the alternative of microtransactions for certain parts or accelerate the construction of furniture. The Leaft Tickets can be purchased with real money and will be useful for creating objects, getting materials more easily or to have exclusive designs for camp.
In addition, players will have their own van and can customize as they like. Obviously, this will also require materials and money. In addition, bells will have to be paid to a group of penguins to get the job done.
Animal Crossing’s mobile game was first announced in 2016 and was set to debut that year. Nintendo changed plans after the release of Super Mario Run, delaying Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem.
Initially, Nintendo wanted to launch 5 mobile titles before the end of the fiscal year 2017. The plans changed and, with a readjustment of dates, the company mentioned that they would distribute 4 games before the end of the current year. With Animal Crossing the circle is complete, as we must remember that Miitomo, Super Mario Run, and Fire Emblem were previously available.
What will be the next mobile titles of Nintendo? Will we see The Legend of Zelda on smart devices? For now we can only wait.
