Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp’s rustic setting is the perfect metaphor for what it’s like to play Nintendo’s latest mobile game. It’s a relaxing getaway that delivers a smart distillation of the traditional Animal Crossing gameplay in a format that’s ideal for the franchise. Only somewhat being held back by the limitations of the device it’s on, this trip is made all the more fun with new, engaging mechanics the series would be smart to hold onto for the future.
Pocket Camp, which soft launched in territories outside of North America, has all the activities you’d expect from an Animal Crossing adventure. You’re still befriending neighborly animals, collecting fruit, hunting bugs, and customizing your living space. They work brilliantly as quick, daily diversions while waiting for a movie to start or riding the train to work. And every activity is made manageable by the world’s clever compartmentalized design.
