Yesterday Nintendo announced Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. It is the first Animal Crossing game for mobile devices and it's currently available now in Australia as part of the game's soft-launch. However, this is 2017 and we have something called the internet. So if you're willing to do a little work it's possible to get Pocket Camp for your iOS and Android device right now.
The process to get Pocket Camp on iOS is a little roundabout, but relatively easy.
- First, sign out of your current Apple account.
- Go to the Apple Store and try and download any app. A prompt will ask you to sign into an account or create a new one. You'll want to create a new account for this to work.
- While creating a new account, Apple will ask for your country, in this case you need to put as Australia. You'll need an address but it should be easy Googling a real Australian address. (Please don't use any domestic address. Instead opt for maybe a big public building or office space)
- After you finish registering your new Australian account, the bounties of the land down under (and Pocket Camp) will be available to you.
There is a way to download the game on the Android, but we can't recommend it. The process involves finding an APK for the game online and downloading Pocket Camp straight to your phone, but the dangers of tampered files means this is slightly more risky.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is part of Nintendo's mobile game line-up which includes Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes. If you're willing to wait, Pocket Camp should launch officially in late November.
