Animal Crossing Pocket Camp Getting Paid Membership Tier

Upgrade your camp to the next level with a paid subscription.


Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is preparing to turn two years old, and in lieu of presents you can just send them more money. A notification in the Pocket Camp app reveals that starting on Thursday, November 21, you can join a paid subscription called the Pocket Camp Club.

The announcement explains that two memberships will be available. One allows you to assign a villager as a camp caretaker to help manage your camp. The other will grant you fortune cookies and allow you to store items in warehouses. The announcement didn't detail how much each membership will cost, or if they can be combined at a discount. More details are said to be coming on Wednesday, November 20.

This seems similar to the model found in Mario Kart Tour, which launched with an optional Gold Pass. That item entitles you to extra rewards when you reach reward tiers in the rotating events, as well as special gold badges to earn and display on your profile. It costs $5 per month.

The addition of a similar model in Animal Crossing suggests Nintendo may be pleased with how it has worked for Mario Kart, though it was one of the more divisive parts of the game. The company recently said it expects "remarkable results" for the Mario Kart, but didn't give specific figures. It also promised that the online mode, which was missing at launch, will come in December in beta.
