Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp might be worth reinstalling now that it has AR capabilities

Would it be sad if I used this feature to make all my Christmas cards this year?

I uninstalled Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp from my phone well before New Horizons hit the Switch, and I really haven’t seen any reason to go back to it. It’s still the cute game I remember from when it launched, but it’s shackled to fortune cookies and a subscription service I just don’t want to deal with.

If anything, I was good and ready to forget all about the app until I found out today Nintendo has added AR functionality to it. That…might be enough to change my mind. As you can see in the trailer below, the new AR feature will allow players to bring their favorite campers into our world, and we’ll be able to go into Pocket Camp to visit our friends in our cabins.

That’s pretty damn neat. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is now available on mobile devices.
