Nintendo tease Splatoon crossover in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp


Is Pearl coming to ruin your town?

A mysterious tweet showed up yesterday on the official twitter for mobile title Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, that appears to be teasing a possible collaboration with the ink-flinging folk of Nintendo Switch shooter Splatoon.

The tweet features an image of a gyroid, ruthlessly splattered in trademark pink and green colours. "We're supposed to be getting a sneak peek at what's to come," muses Animal Crossing's Isabelle. "But all I see are those bright colours."

The event is expected to start in-game as soon as tomorrow, September 13. This is great news, as Splatoon should, frankly, crossover with ALL brands. The world can always use more Off the Hook.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is available now on iOS and Android devices.
