Animal Crossing Mobile will be revealed this week via Nintendo Direct

Animal Crossing Mobile will be revealed this week via Nintendo Direct

One of Nintendo's most enduring franchises, Animal Crossing is coming to mobile devices for the first time in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Frankly, we were kinda surprised why they pushed the launch of the game back given that a game based on Animal Crossing could be one of Nintendo's best on mobile. By acquiring crafting materials, players can task Cyrus with building up the site, in an attempt to make visiting animals happy.

As this is a mobile game, it comes with the inevitable in-app purchase we've come to expect from the format.

Tonight's Animal Crossing Nintendo Direct was chock-full of interesting tidbits you might have blinked through and missed.

Pocket Camp will have seasonal events, exclusive items, and all sorts of other things that you can miss if you don't play often. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp revolves around leaf tickets that are gathered through various activities and completing milestones. If the two of you become Pocket Camp friends, then you will be able to visit their campsite at any time.

Originally announced much earlier in Nintendo's mobile roadmap on April 27, 2016, the game was projected at first to launch much earlier in the scheme of things, like Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes, but that unfortunately did not happen. Breezy Hollow is where you can find fruit, for example, while Saltwater Shores is a beach with fish and items that have washed up. By leveling their friendship up and decorating your house with their favorite items, they will come visit your campsite.

A multiplayer feature lets players exchange ID numbers to visit each others' campsites.

Animal Crossing is a famous game, debuting in 2001 on the Nintendo Gamecube.

I've personally played quite a bit of New Leaf on the 3DS, so I'll definitely try this game out when it's released.

We all know that free Android games aren't always free these days, but many of them are very close if you have a little patience.
