Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp launches a day early

Hasn't changed much since soft launch

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp launches a day early

Nintendo and DeNA has launched its latest mobile game Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp worldwide a day earlier than anticipated.

The game was intended to release on November 22nd, according to a tweet from the official Animal Crossing Twitter account. However, it is already appearing on app stores on both iOS and Android.

Nintendo has yet to acknowledge the title's wide launch on its social media channels. The game is also currently suffering from connectivity issues, which may be resolved once the official launch date comes around.

Camp out

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp was soft-launched on October 25th on Android and iOS. It has spent less than a month in soft-launch, and appears to have launched relatively unchanged.

The game has been hotly anticipated by many, including us at We believe that Nintendo and DeNA's decision to stick to the tried-and-true formula has made for a better experience.

Our IAP Inspector also found it to be a worthy experience, awarding it an "Approved" rating. He said that based on the soft-launch, "Pocket Camp is Animal Crossing on mobile as the fans wanted."
