Nintendo is staking a further claim in the mobile games market with the global release of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on November 22 2017, Nintendo America has announced in a tweet. The official worldwide release date has now been confirmed for November 22nd, just a couple days away.
The mobile phone version of Nintendo's popular Animal Crossing series, has you managing a campsite rather than the traditional town management that was a core element of the series.
Pocket Camp follows social sim Miitomo, endless runner Super Mario Run, and - most recently - tactical role-playing game Fire Emblem Heroes as Nintendo's fourth mobile release so far. There are several other areas of the map to visit for fishing, catching bugs, collecting fruit, and more. There will, of course, be regular reminders to unlock and collect everything, but seasonal events are also planned to ensure you load up Pocket Camp regularly.

The experience was "very unusual for him", Angus told the magazine, "but he was always a confident guy, and we made it work". Young had been battling dementia for three years and was replaced by his nephew, Stevie Young, in the 2015 AC/DC world tour.
Pre-registration for the game is also now available for both platforms.
The company announced Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp would arrive to mobile devices in fall 2016, but got pushed back to 2017. By performing tasks for your new neighbors, you're are able to earn Bells (the currency of Animal Crossing), which can be spent on home improvements, new furniture and new clothing. That real world money can be used to buy Leaf Tickets, which can then be used to buy things like exterior camper designs as well as speed up crafting and acquire materials.
