Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp was originally slated to be released tomorrow, November 22nd. However, it seems like Nintendo has decided to release the game a day early. It should now available both on the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store in most countries. Check your respective store on your mobile device to see if you can download the app.

However, you can’t actually play the game right now. It seems like either the servers are down for maintenance at the moment or are buckling under the heavy load of everyone trying to access them at the same time, as you can’t currently get past the title screen without getting a communication error.

We will keep you updated once the game can actually be played.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp wasn’t originally supposed to take this long. Originally, Nintendo first spoke about the game in 2016. So why are we only seeing it now?

The Wall Street Journal reports that Pocket Camp was redone “at least once during the development process to ensure quality.” That’s according to the publication’s sources involved with the game’s creation.

The Wall Street Journal further notes that Nintendo “also had to prepare a full slate of limited-time events happening within the app to keep players coming back frequently”. It took some time for Fire Emblem Heroes to really get started on that front, which caused some people to lose interest. For Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, it sounds like Nintendo wanted to keep players busy from the get-go.
