We knew it was coming in late November, and now we have a date: 11/22.
Nintendo’s next mobile game, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, will be out on Wednesday. The tweet announcing the news pegs it for release on unspecified “mobile devices,” which probably means a simultaneous Android and iOS launch.
Pocket Camp rethinks Nintendo’s enduring series about building a quiet, rural life in a small village filled with adorable talking animals. While the core ideas remain the same — you customize your living space, travel to other living and social spaces, and gather resources — your home base is a campsite rather than a town.
Also, in a new twist that aims to foster more social play, visiting campsites and being visited by others strengthens in-game relationships.
More practically, the free-to-play Pocket Camp places limitations on your progress through the use of timers and resource availability. Spending an in-game currency called Leaf Tickets — which can be earned by completing certain tasks or purchased outright with IRL cash — allows you to sidestep those constraints.
Pocket Camp follows social sim Miitomo, endless runner Super Mario Run, and — most recently — tactical role-playing game Fire Emblem Heroes as Nintendo’s fourth mobile release so far.
A rumor surfaced in May of this year — before Pocket Camp was announced — suggesting that Nintendo’s fourth mobile game would be based on Animal Crossing, and then a fifth would be based on The Legend of Zelda. Half of that rumor has already come to pass, so it’s looking like the Zelda game may be next.
