Step-by-Step guide - How to get Animal Cross Pocket Camp items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
- Firstly, fire up Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on your phone or smart device.
- Tap 'My Nintendo' from the in-game menu (it's in the lower right corner of the screen, just above 'Social'). If this is your first time playing Pocket Camp, you'll have to complete the tutorial and get far enough through the game to visit recreation spots and design your own campsite.
- If you haven't linked Pocket Camp to your Nintendo Account yet, you'll have to do so. It's simple enough: tap Create/Link Nintendo Account, and then selecting Create New Account. If your Nintendo Account is linked already, move to step 4
- Open the 'My Nintendo' from step 1 again, find a reward called 'Animal Crossing: New Horizons Special Order Ticket + 50 Leaf Tickets' and tap it.
- You should now see a 16-digit download code which you'll use to get the items in New Horizons. Write it down, screengrab it or just leave the game running while you fetch your Switch. 50 Leaf Tickets will automatically be added to your Pocket Camp mailbox (in the menu) and don't worry if you accidentally close the app before noting the code - you can find it again via the 'My Nintendo' rewards screen.
- On your Switch head to the Nintendo eShop. Remember to use the same Nintendo Account you use to play Pocket Camp.
- Hit 'Enter Code' on the bottom left corner of the screen. You probably know what to do now...
- Once you've entered the code, close the eShop and fire up Animal Crossing: New Horizons (make sure you've downloaded the Day 1 patch).
- Pay a visit to the Nook Stop. If you don't have access to Nook Stop, you'll have to play a little bit, but you'll soon encounter it.
- That's it! You can now get your chubby round hands on those shiny Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp items by ordering them through Promotions in Nook Shopping.
