Don't Forget To Get Special Animal Crossing: New Horizons Items By Playing Pocket Camp

Link your Nintendo Account to the Animal Crossing mobile game and you can claim a download code for some Pocket Camp-themed items in New Horizons.


Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been out on Nintendo Switch for a few weeks, but you can still claim a few freebies in the game. On top of the free virtual Switch that was added in the launch day 1.1.0 update, you can grab a few special items by playing the series' mobile spin-off, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

Nintendo has added a free My Nintendo reward in Pocket Camp called Animal Crossing: New Horizons Special Order Ticket. You can see the reward by clicking on the My Nintendo icon in Pocket Camp's menu. If you have the same Nintendo Account linked to Pocket Camp and New Horizons, you can claim this reward and receive a special download code, which can then be redeemed in the Switch Eshop to add a handful of Pocket Camp-themed items in New Horizons, including two mini RVs, a campsite sign, and an OK Motors shirt. The items will appear in the Nook Shopping catalog in your Resident Services kiosk.
