(Update) Splatoon x Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp crossover begins today


'Look at all your different-coloured hats!'

[Update: The crossover event is live! Players can now partake in a scavenger hunt to earn in-game clothing. Buy Cookie Packs for Splatoon-themed furniture and even partake in a squid fishing tournament. Have fun!]

Following on from their recent tease, Nintendo Japan has announced via twitter that there is indeed a crossover event taking place between colourful Switch shooter Splatoon and mobile-title Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

The new event starts today and will give Pocket Camp players the opportunity to pick up a selection of cosmetic items based on the Splatoon universe. Hats, headphones and other clothing will be available to in-game avatars, as well messy-looking fencing and ground tiles, plastered with splashes of Splatoon's notable pink and green neon ink.

You can check out some of the items that will be made available in-game in the gallery below. Given that the crosssover event starts today, no doubt we'll be hearing further details soon. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is available now on iOS and Android devices.
