‘Animal Crossing Pocket Camp’ game introduced via Nintendo Direct
Nintendo held a special “Animal Crossing” direct presentation today on the Nintendo Mobile YouTube channel to preview an upcoming game for smartphones.
The presentation discussed the many features of “Animal Crossing Pocket Camp” which is the first smartphone version in the game franchise.
“Animal Crossing” games traditionally introduce players to different environments and settings with each game iteration. “Pocket Camp” focuses on creating the perfect camp site for anthropomorphized animal friends.
Apart from the usual resource gathering and item crafting, players may raise the friendship level of animal characters through interactions. Raising friendship levels make them more likely to visit the camp site the player created. Players could also build favorite items that would attract animal friends to visit.
Time in “Pocket Camp” also progresses like it does in the real world. Different animals will visit the camp site based on the time of day.
Like many mobile games, “Pocket Camp” has a daily quest checklist. Accomplishing dailies reward various items, in-game currency of Bells and Leaf Tickets.
Leaf Tickets are a special type of currency which can be used in various ways.
A Friend system has also been put in place. Players will be able to interact with other “Pocket Camp” players, trade with them and check out each other’s camp sites.
Other than building up the camp site, its manager players will also get to customize their camper. It acts as both tool for traveling around areas to gather materials, and a virtual home for players.
Over time, there will be limited seasonal events, limited time outfits, and special items with each game update.
“Animal Crossing Pocket Camp” will be available on iOS and Android starting late November this year. JB
