Animal Crossing Pocket Camp

People in Australia and New Zealand have been enjoying Nintendo's newest mobile game, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, for almost a month now.

As you might gather, the game puts you in charge of a camp site, rather than overseeing a whole village, but otherwise seems to work in the same way as the regular Animal Crossing games. Let us know in the comments what you think of the game.

Animal Crossing is based on Nintendo's 3DS title Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo and includes some of the same characters. Super Mario Run debuted in December 2016, while Fire Emblem Heroes launched in February.

Once it is enabled, navigate to your downloads and find the APK to Animal Crossing Pocket Camp, tap on it and you will be presented the choice to install it.

The game's description uses the phrase "free-to-start" mobile game and players have to make friends with all sorts of animals, help them perform tasks. If you have done the later already via an Australian My Nintendo account, then you're stuck using that account for the time being. Thanks to the success of its mobile games, Nintendo said its smart device and IP-related income was 9 billion yen during the second fiscal quarter this year.

One downside to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is that it will be called a freemium game. Also, make sure you have a persistent Internet connection, otherwise you won't be able to play the game. While you can earn this form of in-game cash you can also purchase it with real money. Those who want to interact with their friends can spend time at the campsite and build a relationship with them. Have you tried out the new Pocket Camp game on iOS or Android yet?
