Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp comes to your phone on 11/22

On Sunday evening, Nintendo revealed that Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will launch globally on November 22nd for iOS and Android devices.

Animal Crossing has proven incredibly popular in recent years, and it seems this mobile release maintains its best qualities without sacrificing too much with its new F2P model. The major hook of Animal Crossing is each game works according to the real world clock, so certain activities and events are only accessible at specific times on specific days. So far the small-community-em-up has only been available in Australia, but it's coming to Android and iOS worldwide on 22 November.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is the third mobile game published by Nintendo within the previous year.

The company announced Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp would arrive to mobile devices in fall 2016, but got pushed back to 2017.

There will be recreation areas where you're able to collect fruit, go fishing, and capture all sorts of insects just like other entries in the series. A new in-game currency called "Leaf Tickets" will offer a way for impatient gamers to spend real money to purchase upgrades ahead of schedule.

In a normal Animal Crossing game, the player moves into a town and is given a house by local business raccoon Tom Nook, under the condition that you have to work to pay him off. Leaf Tickets are required to buy in-game items, and while they can be acquired for free through gameplay, it's possible to buy 20 Leaf Tickets for $0.99, 45 for $1.99, 100 for $3.99, and 200 for $7.99.

Animal Crossing: Animal Camp involves players visiting and managing a campsite, rather than a village as in the console versions of the game.
