Isabelle Animal Crossing

Update - Tue 17th Dec, 2019 01:45 GMT: Isabelle has officially passed on the Pocket Camp duties to Lloid the gyroid. As of today, he'll be covering all of the updates tied to the mobile game. This clears up the main Animal Crossing Twitter account, which hopefully means we'll get some New Horizon updates as we get closer to the game's release next March.


Original Story - Thu 21st Nov, 2019 05:45 GMT: If you thought Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on mobile might be wrapping up with the new game on the horizon, think again. To mark the game's second anniversary, last weekend Nintendo announced a new paid membership service.

Now, in another surprising move, Nintendo is starting up a standalone Pocket Camp Twitter account (@Pocket_Camp) in English. Lloid the gyroid will now be providing updates on the game instead of Isabelle, and from next month onwards, the Pocket Camp Twitter will be the go-to source for all updates relevant to your mobile campsite.

It seems as if Nintendo wants to clear up the main account (@animalcrossing), so it can focus on Animal Crossing: New Horizons when it releases on Switch next March. Isabelle has also reassured fans that she's "not going anywhere" which is great to hear.
