Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp hits App Store

As previously announced, Nintendo’s much anticipated mobile game Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is now available for free on iPhone and iPad. This is the third mobile title that Nintendo has released after Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes.

The mobile take on the popular Animal Crossing franchise takes players into the wilderness to craft, build and design their own campsite. It has a similar look and feel to the other games in the Animal Crossing series, though scaled back for mobile.

Instead of being set in a large location like a big city, you’re situated in a camp ground.

You can collect items, do tasks and complete challenges for different components—all which can be combined to craft different items, from a table to a swimming pool.

Check out the announcement trailer for the game.

The free-to-play game is similar to other freemium titles.

Crafting new items takes real time to complete and you can speed that up by using premium in-game currency which can be purchased optionally for real money. Remember, you can always disable In-App Purchases to prevent young kids from racking up excessive iTunes bills.

Grab Animal Crossing for free from App Store.
