The New Animal Crossing Game Is Out Now, Earlier Than Expected

Animal Crossing's laid back gameplay seems like a flawless fit for mobile platforms, and a free, accessible entry in the franchise on devices most people already own will likely boost the performance of future franchise entries (and maybe even previous ones) much like Pokémon GO did for Pokémon games. Like previous Animal Cross games, Pocket Camp lets you decorate, do odd jobs to earn cash and wander aimlessly between locations. Is the oven on, or is Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp at the door right now? In the new game, users take on the role of campsite manager.

This follows on from the huge success of Super Mario Run and the well received Fire Emblem Heroes.

The mobile version of Animal Crossing is already out on Android, and free to download from the Google Play Store. This isn't the first time Nintendo has surprised fans with an early release.

Manson got the death penalty in 1971, but when that was ruled was changed to 9 consecutive life sentences. It would be Manson's response-and how he responded-that made people even more deeply disturbed with the convicted killer.

Outside of the addition of Leaf Tickets, the game features the same gameplay and graphics as the original Animal Crossing, which debuted outside of Japan on the Nintendo GameCube in 2002 before crossing over to the portable Nintendo DS.

There's still no clue as to whether there'll be an Animal Crossing title for the Switch, but the smart money has got to be on a reveal next year - or perhaps even at The Game Awards event next month.

As usual for an Animal Crossing game, you'll be able to collect a seemingly endless amount of trinkets through activities like fishing, bug hunting, and food gathering. Those who want to interact with their friends can spend time at the campsite and build a relationship with them. It's not out on iOS yet though, so you may have to wait until tomorrow for that. The game is available now for iOS and Android.
