The long-awaited smartphone debut of the Animal Crossing series will finally arrive some time in late November.

Aside from a few boo-birds upset about micro-transactions, Nintendo hit it out of the park with their reveal of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camper. As opposed to original console release of the game, the mobile version puts the player in charge of a campsite instead of becoming mayor of a town. Gamers will personalize their site by making furniture along with adding amenities and other items. You can speed up this process with Leaf Tickets, a currency that can be bought using real money or earned in-game.

If you're still wondering what the point of the game is or why this announcement matters, the answer is to be fun and cute and also we could all really use this right now. The more an animal likes your camp, the more likely it is they'll visit, and this boosts their friendship level with you. You might not have been expecting this to be the best-looking Animal Crossing game ever made, but hey, that's what we've got. A consistent internet connection is also required.

Traditionally, the Japanese games giant only launches its own titles on Nintendo-badged consoles, but it has since made a decision to capitalise on the growing smartphone market. If you find it to be to your liking, you can give them a good rating.

You visit a forest to pick berries, and you visit a beach to go fishing. That level of simplicity carries over to the menus which, though there are plenty of icons to tap on, make flawless sense and are easy to navigate once you get into the routine.

Once you've crafted a piece of furniture, you're able to place it in your camping ground. It looks as though the campsite is very customizable with furniture, decorations and larger amenities to fill the empty space.

Is Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp free? If you level up your friendship or decorate your campsite with an animal's favorite items, she or he might pay you a visit.

Nintendo has made the game for iOS (9.0 or later) and Android (4.2 or later).

"Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is great for newcomers to the series as well as longtime fans, and ideal for people playing on a mobile device".

But what's there at the moment feels, for all the changes to the game's presentation, like a fundamentally Animal Crossing experience.

The game will have seasonal events and limited-time items and outfits through game updates which will become available through free updates once the game has launched in November. You can sign up to be notified when the game goes live in the U.S. and in the UK.
