Download ‘Animal Crossing Pocket Camp’ Right Now on the Australian App Store

Last night Nintendo announced most of the details for Animal Crossing Pocket Camp. If you missed the presentation, it’s basically the same Animal Crossing that you know and love with some incredibly minor differences- Instead of building out a house, you’ve got a camp site and a camper that’ll be the focus of your efforts. Aside from that, all of the Animal Crossing features you’ve come to expect seem to be there.

Pre-registration went live last night, but you can actually download the game right now in the Australian App Store. It requires an Australian iTunes account, but the steps to create one are super trivial which we laid out when Clash Royale was new.

There’s one tiny wrinkle though, in that in order to get the soft launched version of Animal Crossing Pocket Camp to recognize your Nintendo account, you’ll need to log in to My Nintendo and change your account region to Australia. That seems to be all the region locking they’ve done. (Alternatively, you could just not link your Nintendo account and start over when the game hits the US?)

Here’s the download links:

I’m going to grab the game and hop in, stay tuned for some first impressions!
