Nintendo is bringing another one of its beloved game franchises to mobile. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp lands on Android and iOS in late November. Enjoy a 13-minute preview of the game in the video below.

Nintendo loves simulation games, and Animal Crossing has become one of its most successful, with over 30 million titles sold worldwide. Now it’s coming to mobile, and Nintendo will be hoping it’s just as popular as Super Mario Run.

In Pocket Camp, you take control of a campsite. You’ll need to craft furniture and materials by completing tasks to obtain the items you require. You can then dress up your campsite to attract new animals, which in turn give you more crafting options.

Animal Crossing will be free-to-play

Animal Crossing will be free-to-play, like previous Nintendo releases on Android and iOS. You’ll use in-game currency called Leaf Tickets to purchase crafting items or to speed up build times. These can be earned by completing tasks, or through in-app purchases.

You can enjoy a 13-minute preview of the game in the clip below from the latest Nintendo Direct.

Nintendo hasn’t set a specific release date for Pocket Camp, but the company promises it will be available in late November.
