The long-awaited Animal Crossing mobile game has finally been unveiled and is coming to Android and iOS devices sooner than fans think.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will release in late November and bring the quirkiness and area upkeep that fans of the beloved Nintendo series are used to but in the palm of your hands and be able to build and explore with all of the classic Animal Crossing characters like Isabelle, Tom Nook, Cyrus and much more.

“As our past mobile games have proved, we love taking established and well-loved franchises and transforming them for the ways players use their devices,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing in a press release. “ 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.”

Check out the Nintendo Direct featuring Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp below.

Some of the features shown during the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp direct include how you can customize your character, or in the case of Pocket Camp, your Manager. Choose your sex, skin, hair, and eye color.

There are plenty of clothes customization options as well but we’ll get to that in a bit. What Pocket Camp is really going to bring to mobile devices is a dedicated crafting system. Players will be able to gather resources like wood and fruit to craft items for your campsite. Furniture and decorative items will be what managers are looking for as they gather all the material they need.

There are two types of currency in Pocket Camp and they are the Leaf Tickets and Bells. Bells are the in-game currency for Pocket Camp and players will use that for purchasing pre-made furniture and items as well as new clothes. Bells can be earned by selling raw material to other characters.

Leaf Tickets can be earned through regular gameplay, by completing certain tasks, as well as using real-world money. These special items can shorten the time it takes to craft items, acquire material or unique camper exterior designs.

In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp , players can chat with other characters and fulfill special requests. This will raise your friendship level. If you level up your friendship or decorate your campsite with an animal’s favorite items, she or he might pay you a visit.

Players can also send their Player IDs to friends who also have the game so they can visit your campsite. Random player avatars will also visit your campsite from time to time. Once someone visits, you can exchange your Bells for items saved in the Market Box.

Pocket Camp will have a day/night cycle and this will affect which animal friends show up. The Market Place, is also constantly changing. The area where players cna purchase pre-made furniture and clothes and the shops that are there are rotating so keep checking back.

In addition to all the fun things you can do in the game, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will eventually offer seasonal events to keep the experience fresh and surprising, as well as limited-time furniture and outfit options through game updates. These events and updates will begin rolling out after launch.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will release for iOS and Android in late November.
