“Pocket Camp” updates have included a variety of new content, including in-game campsiter’s garden area, attire crafting mechanics, seasonal events, new furnitures, newly added characters, and more.
The newly included garden area in “Pocket Camp” enables the player to plant and grow flowers, a mechanic reminiscent of gardening in the original game, where planting flowers had mostly aesthetic purposes. In “Pocket Camp,” however, flowers can be harvested to trade for various flower-themed items and furniture. They can be alternatively used to pollinate other flowers in hopes of getting seeds of rare colored flowers that cannot be bought. Otherwise, flowers are a lovely decoration to adorn the player’s campsite.
Players can now craft clothes, shoes, and accessories in addition to furnitures and amenities, or campsite structures that raise friendship level caps with certain types of campers. Unlike furnitures, which are often necessities to craft in order to invite a specific animal to the player’s campsite, clothes simply modify the player’s appearance. They are not required to be made, since clothes can be bought at in-game marketplace, although craftable clothes are usually not available at the store.
More characters from the original game of “Animal Crossing,” as well as the set of furniture players need to craft to be able to invite them to their campsite, have been added. Additionally, a new type of camper and style of furniture, “rustic,” has been implemented. Like its name suggests, the “rustic” type campers prefer simple, pastoral furniture and items, like the Log Bench.
Four in-game events have been held, including the Christmas, New Year’s, and two Gardening events. All four events reward event-exclusive attire and furnitures for completing certain missions. Although the seasonal event missions consist of completing requests for campers and crafting certain event-only items, the gardening event differs in that its missions involve players using a new mechanic that allows them to catch bugs on bloomed event-only flowers.
Hopefully, “Pocket Camp” players have been enjoying such new contents and will continue to do so with future updates.
