Following in the Footsteps of Mario Kart Tour

An Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp paid subscription is in the works.

As Nintendo Life reports, the mobile game set in the Animal Crossing universe has been out for more than two years. Unfortunately, it's been among the weakest-performing mobile games released in the Nintendo mobile lineup, but they think they might have a solution to boost the game's revenue: a paid subscription system.

 

Following in the footsteps of Mario Kart Tour, Nintendo is planning on introducing a two-tier system where players will be able to earn perks related to admin and storage. What exactly all of those perks are or how much each of the two subscription tiers will cost isn't yet known, but we're going to find out very soon.

Details Coming About Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Paid Subscription

Now that we know that Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is going to have a Mario Kart Tour-style paid subscription system, what will it cost and what are you going to get? Well, we just don't know yet — but we're going to be learning more details very soon.

We do know a few things, though. The subscription is going to be called "Pocket Camp Club". One tier of the subscription will let you appoint an animal as your "camp caretaker" who will help out around your campsite. The other tier will let you receive fortune cookies and store your furniture and clothing items in warehouses. It's not yet known if these are going to be the only benefits to the subscription or if there will be more beyond this.

 

More details on this subscription service (including what it will cost) are expected to arrive sometime on Wednesday, November 20, 2019.

What do you think of the forthcoming Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp subscription service? Does it sound like something you'd use, or do you prefer the game as it stands right now? Let us know in the comments below!
