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.
