Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp announced for iOS and Android devices

Nintendo has announced Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, a new entry in the beloved series coming to mobile this November.

Revealed during a recent Nintendo Direct presentation, Pocket Camp will see players manage their own campsite with unique occupants, buildings and furniture.

You can befriend the animals of each campsite by completing specific tasks and favours whether it be crafting furniture, fishing or picking fruit from a nearby tree.

Each animal now has a friendship metre, meaning you can monitor how much your favourite friend likes you. This is a new feature for the series, and sounds pretty cool.

Cyrus, the resident alpaca blacksmith, can be recruited to build new objects and amenities such as gathering spots and swimming pools.

This will take time, and infamous loan shark Tom Nook can be recruited to speed things up with Leaf Tickets, a currency that can be earned in-game or with microtransactions.

Aside from all the friendship and other cute stuff, players will also have their own personal campsite to customise and upgrade with whatever they like.
