Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has received a new 5.0 update. Nintendo shared just how extensive this update is, and a new quality of life feature that accompanies it. Through the new Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp 5.0 update, players can now invite a total of 16 villagers to their camp. Additionally, a new Diary feature has arrived. The Diary feature will allow for players to check the event schedule in-game and see when certain items will be available to purchase. Players can also add stickers to their Diary. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will soon have new items for players to obtain. In February, seasonal items will arrive, along with entirely new item sets. This includes a “Detective” inspired set, which includes new outfits. Additionally, players will be able to receive dog themed items. This includes a special skin for your caravan.
To coincide with the release of the update, Nintendo has uploaded a trailer to its official YouTube channel and Twitter account. You can watch the trailer below.
