Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp (どうぶつの森 ポケットキャンプ Dōbutsu no Mori Poketto Kyanpu?, Animal Forest Pocket Camp) is a free-to-play mobile app developed by Nintendo. It was originally announced in April 2016, and was released worldwide on November 22, 2017 (except in some regions). A persistent internet connection is required to play.


The mobile app was originally announced in a press release on April 27th, 2016.[4] Nintendo stated, " will be connected with the world of Animal Crossing for dedicated gaming systems. By playing both Animal Crossing games, users will find increased enjoyment."[5]

In September 2016, it had a planned release of early 2017, but was delayed due to the team focusing on creating the Android version of Super Mario Run

On June 23rd, 2017, Nintendo reconfirmed that the app would be released before the end of the year.[6]

On October 23rd, 2017, Nintendo announced via the official Animal Crossing Twitter account that a Nintendo Direct would be live streamed the next day on October 24th at 8pmPT/11pmET, detailing further information about the mobile app and stated, "There will be no updates on any other topics including other mobile, Nintendo Switch or Nintendo 3DS software."[7]


On October 24th, 2017, Nintendo revealed Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp during the Animal Crossing Mobile Direct live stream on the Nintendo Mobile YouTube channel.[8]

The game's official website allowed players to preregister for the game using their Google Play and Nintendo account. Shortly after the Direct, the game went live on the Australian Play Store on Android devices.


Campsite customization

When the player starts the game, they are asked by Isabelle to choose between 4 different types of campsite: natural (Goldie), cute (Rosie), sporty (Jay), or cool (Apollo). Several other themes, such as rustic, hip, harmonious, elegant, modern, historical, and civic are present and were given their own obtainable villagers post-release.

The campsite can be customized with furniture and amenities. Furniture can be made by gathering crafting materials, which are used in craft orders for Cyrus, which the player has to wait for to be completed. Craft orders can be started without materials and sped up by using Leaf Tickets. Non-craftable furniture can be bought at Nookling Global and during limited-time events. The customizable area for furniture in the campsite is 7x13 tiles. The player can also make amenities for villagers to use, which there can be a maximum of 2 per campsite.

Camper customization

The camper's interior can be decorated by the player with furniture, wallpaper, and flooring, and a second-floor loft can also be added. Additionally, the player is able to extend the space inside each floor of the camper through upgrades. The exterior can be customized at OK Motors, where the player can choose between different patterns and colors.

Player customization

The player can customize their character by changing their gender, skin color, hair style, hair color, facial features, eye color, clothes, and accessories. All features except gender can be re-customized at any time.



The player orders furniture from Cyrus.

Furniture can be made by placing a craft order. The player can use Leaf Tickets to start an order even if they don't have all of the materials required, as well as speed up the time it takes for an order to be completed.

Amenities are large attractions villagers can use. There can be a maximum of 2 amenities per campsite.

Friendship Level


Bunnie walks near a windmill.

In the game, the player can chat with animal friends or fulfill requests to raise the friendship level with that villager. The animal will come and visit the player's campsite when their minimum required friendship level is reached, their required furniture is placed at the player's campsite, and the player calls them via the phone to invite them.

The player also has a level. This is raised by leveling up villagers. Each time a villager's friendship level is increased, a heart is added to the player level progress. For each new level, the player will receive rewards that include unlocking more furniture or animals who may visit, as well as 1000 Bells and 10 Leaf Tickets. On levels that are multiples of 5, the player receives an additional item, which may be a calling card, and/or a request card, and/or an additional market box slot.

Other campsite managers' avatars and campers will randomly appear, and the player is also able to meet other campsite managers by sharing their ID with other players. When encountering another player in the game, or after receiving their ID, you can view their Market Box, their campsite, give kudos, or become friends to be able to visit their campsite at any time.

Leaf Tickets

Leaf Tickets are a currency which are earned by completing tasks and can be won through normal play or can be purchased with real-world money, and can be used in various ways in the game. Leaf Tickets purchased on one operating system cannot be used on another. For example, Leaf Tickets bought on Android cannot be used on iOS. During gardening events and fishing tourneys, Leaf Tickets can be purchased in a bundle with other themed items. Fertilizer and Leaf Tickets during a gardening event, and throw nets and Leaf Tickets during a fishing tourney.

Price (USD) Leaf Tickets Price per 5 tickets Price per ticket (approximate)
$0.99 20 24.75¢ 4.95¢

Throw Net 

Throw nets are used on the dock at Saltwater Shores and Lost Lure Creek to catch multiple fish and shells or at Sunburst Island to catch multiple bugs. They can be bought with Leaf Tickets or earned during play.


Honey is used on Sunburst Island to attract and catch multiple bugs at once and can be bought with Leaf Tickets or earned during play.



The player can catch fish and bugs to give to villagers in exchange for resources.

Unlike other Animal Crossing series spinoff games, Pocket Camp features collectable fish and bugs. The player can also collect shells, coral and fruit, as well as collecting crafting materials.


Main article: Fish (Pocket Camp)
The number of fish in Pocket Camp is fewer than most other entries in the Animal Crossing series, and all of the fish included have existed in previous entries. Pocket Camp introduces a new fishing item called the throw net, for which a river and ocean version exist. It is used to capture multiple fish at the same time.


Main article: Bugs (Pocket Camp)
The number of bugs in Pocket Camp is fewer than most other entries in the Animal Crossing series, and all of the bugs included have existed in previous entries. Pocket Camp adds a new item to help bug catching, called honey. It can be poured into a tree trunk to attract several bugs at once.


Main article: Goals
Goals are a new addition to the Animal Crossing series, and are specific tasks for the player to complete. They are accessed by tapping the Isabelle icon to the right side of the screen. They are divided into Timed Goals (time-sensitive goals which reset every 24 hours, or within a special event) and Stretch Goals (no time limit, to be completed at the player's leisure).
