'Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp' Launches A Day Early

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is now live on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store, launching a day earlier than its originally announced release date of November 22.

The game was initially due out earlier this year, but it was reportedly postponed to favor the launch of Fire Emblem Heroes, the first mobile game of the franchise and an ongoing success.

Nintendo's third smartphone game follows in the tracks of Super Mario Run and Miitomo. Helping the animals not only earns players friendship but they will receive materials they need to craft items. The video game giant has said there will be regular updates and seasonal events. Considering that it's still better than nothing at all I am going to say that Nintendo has at least created something new and slightly interesting with Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp that should at least be worth a few hours of playtime at a minimum.

Mostly designed for a young audience, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a simulation game with classic crafting and building features as well as managing the visits of different animals on your campsite.

You have the option of linking your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts to locate your meatspace friends who are also playing Pocket Camp, but the game gives you a tool to add anyone you want. This is where the daily grind comes into play.

If it is such a seemingly simple game, why would you need to be online to play it though?

There are a couple of limited time items that are available from Cyrus in the crafting store that can only be crafted with Leaf Tickets.
