Nintendo has announced its latest mobile game Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and it is coming to iOS and Android next month. Following on from the release of Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes, the game will be available as a free download and will feature in app purchases.

The game is launching worldwide some time next month, but Nintendo appears to have launched it in the Australian app store for iOS, so if you live in Australia you can now download the game.

First they release Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, which was the biggest slap in the face of the Wii-U generation, and now they're releasing a mobile game (yawn - paywalls, bunk controls, and automated gameplay).

If Nintendo doesn't release a main-line console Animal Crossing soon enough, I'm going to give up on the IP. I loved the original on the Gamecube. I sunk a few hundred hours into it. But those days are long gone.

The game is pretty pay-wall friendly, but definitely feels like you are playing a scenario, rather than playing your own campground. The reason for this is that what you can build, who you see in the game, and whom will visit your campground is determined by your character level and by the friendship level of the animals you have met. So you pretty much buy/build based on inviting animals to your campground, rather than buying/building things you have an actual interest in owning.

Each game is the same (there are no unique locations, unlike the mainline games where every plot of land was unique) and there is not much to do as everything has been simplified.

It is an easy pick and put down time waster because of the hidden timers (each animal has a set amount of requests they will make every 4 hours and animals rotate out every 4 hours) but not something you will spend hours on end playing.

Ill download it for sure. I hope there is more to it than Mario Run. Prolly not. And they should have a AC game for Switch ready for when people want the full game.

Mario Run at least had some semblance of challenge. Animal Crossing requires no skill, just your ability to come back every couple of hours to tap some animals/fish/insects/trees.

I started playing yesterday and I am level 10 and most of the animal relationships are level 5. We'll see how long I keep playing, because I can easily see me dropping the game entirely if I miss just a single day of signing in to play.
