Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp formally launched one week in the past, bringing the appeal and stress-free gameplay of the core sequence to iOS and Android. Whereas it’s scaled down and extra streamlined than its console siblings, we hoped that Nintendo would use the chance for normal updates on cellular to convey extra gadgets, characters, and occasions to the sport over time. The latter of those needs has already come true with the kickoff of the primary in-game seasonal occasion this week, which brings Christmas decorations and clothes to Pocket Camp.
Upon logging in anytime right now—the occasion formally started at 1AM EST—gamers will discover just a few adjustments of their recreation. To start with, a free Santa Hat is ready in everybody’s mailbox, and there are 4 different items of Santa gear out there to earn to finish your jolly ensemble. There’s a lengthy record of recent Timed Targets given by Isabelle along with the standard day by day three: as a substitute of a 24-hour time restrict, nevertheless, these targets may be accomplished anytime within the subsequent 25 days. They primarily contain finishing requests for animals and crafting new, holiday-specific furnishings.
That new furnishings is the opposite main addition gained from this occasion. There are eleven new gadgets out there in Cyrus’ craft catalogue, every with a Christmas or wintry theme. They embody a Mountain of Presents, a Jingle Snow Globe, a Festive Bow Tree, and—as a vital Animal Crossing inclusion—a Three-Ball Snowman. Not like the remainder of gadgets which require supplies like Metal, Wooden, and Cotton to be constructed, the vacation gadgets solely want Sweet Canes (and Bells and time) to be crafted. This particular holiday-specific materials may be earned by ending the brand new Timed Targets or finishing requests for animal campers.
Primarily based on the 25-day time restrict for Isabelle’s targets in addition to the in-game discover of a “limited-time vacation occasion,” we assume that these things will not be out there to be crafted after December 25th. If you wish to embellish your Campsite with vacation cheer and snag all of Santa’s gear, be certain you begin crafting earlier than Christmas.
