Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is out this week

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is out this week

The creators of Nintendo's hotly-anticipated mobile port of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp have announced that the game will arrive for Android and iOS devices this Wednesday, Nov. 22. The rest of the world has had to wait for this ambiguous "late November" release date teased last month, but that wait is just about over. It's also the first time for Animal Crossing to be ported over to mobile devices. You show up at an empty camp site and are asked by Isabelle to run the place and make it great. These factors affect things such as fish spawns and bug hatchings, enabling some events or features in the game to be available only at certain times of the year.

For those that aren't up to speed, Animal Crossing traditionally puts the player in the shoes of a villager who has to earn their keep in a new town, all while making friends with an endearing bunch of cutesy characters. However, we now have an official confirmation from Nintendo that the game will see a global launch on November 22nd.

The reveal of the app came during a Nintendo Direct broadcast which saw the firm finally reveal Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, a smartphone-friendly iteration of its quirky life sim series.
