Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp releases early (again)

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp releases early (again)

While scheduled to release on November 22nd, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is now rolling out worldwide and it is out in the US App Store right now.

However, the Japanese gaming giant have shocked fans by launching the free app a day early - with it now available to download for iPhone and Android phones.

The other smartphone apps Nintendo have released are Miitomo and the Nintendo Switch Online app.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp requires an internet connection, so you can see why this is crucial.

This is likely due to one or two reasons; the servers are now inundated with people trying to connect a once (common for any new online game - just see the recent release of Call of Duty WW2) or, since the app download was available ahead of release, servers aren't quite fully live yet. You play as the manager of a campground, building your campsite and interacting with animals you meet. Super Mario Run debuted in December 2016, while Fire Emblem Heroes launched in February.

Rotten Tomatoes Delayed 'Justice League' Review Is Bad
The average score for the movie is a 5.2/10 meaning most reviews gave it 2 or 3 stars in total. Any other movie would beg for that huge of an opening weekend.

"Just open up the Craft menu and place an order with Cyrus, the hardworking handyman from Re-Tail on the Road". As you play, you collect items and complete tasks for the animals you meet. Bells are used to purchase and craft furniture, upgrade your camper van, and buy new outfits, while Leaf Tickets can buy special furniture and items, as well as upgrade things like your inventory space.

Pocket Camp, like the latter two titles, is essentially another entry in its respective series, but it has been optimized for a mobile experience.

Host Animals at Your Campsite: "As you grow your friendships with different animals, they'll want to visit your campsite".

Players will be rewarded for logging in daily like in other Animal Crossing games, but there will also be microtransactions.
