Animal Crossing: New Horizons Event Live In Pocket Camp
For a limited time, you can earn and craft items from New Horizons in the Animal Crossing mobile game.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons makes its highly anticipated debut on Nintendo Switch this week, and ahead of its release, you'll be able to get a small taste of it in the series' mobile spin-off, Pocket Camp. A New Horizons collaboration event is now live in the Animal Crossing mobile game, and it introduces a handful of items inspired by the upcoming Switch title (read our Animal Crossing: New Horizons review-in-progress for details on that).
Among the daily log-in bonuses you'll receive as part of the event are the Nook Inc. aloha shirts that Timmy, Tommy, and Tom Nook wear in New Horizons, as well as Leaf Tickets and Gold Treats. These will be distributed each day until the release of New Horizons. You'll also be able to craft special Timmy and Tommy Nook Inc. banners for a limited time.
On top of that, a Fishing Tourney Island Excursion event is underway. You can catch deserted-island fish and earn items from New Horizons as rewards, including the Dodo Airlines plane and a workbench. The Fishing Tourney Island Excursion runs through March 18. You can read more on the official Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp website.
Alongside the New Horizons event, a new update has gone live for Pocket Camp. The update increases the size of your inventory from 410 to 450, allowing you to carry more items than before. The game is also giving out 20 Leaf Tickets to all players; you can claim them from your mailbox until April 11.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons launches on Switch on March 20. We recently had a chance to check out the game at PAX East, where we got to see its beautiful museum and learn that you can snitch to Isabelle. You can read more about the title in our Animal Crossing: New Horizons pre-order guide.
