With Animal Crossing: New Horizons now only eight days away from launch, a special crossover event has begun in the series' mobile offering, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
Designed to give Pocket Camp players a taste of the island life they can expect to enjoy in New Horizons, the event features several little nods to the new game. While the event is live, players can go ahead and catch lots of deserted island fish, chill out in a deserted island setting, and enjoy a range of new 'Countdown to Release' log-in bonuses.
All players have also been given 20 Leaf Tickets and, perhaps the most exciting thing of all, is that you can even go ahead and get an aloha shirt just like Tom Nook's. If you've ever wanted to style yourself after the world's most famous raccoon entrepreneur, now's your chance.
Even the loading screen has had a makeover:
Will you be loading up Pocket Camp to see this crossover event? Let us know with a comment below.

So do you get items in NH or is this just goodies for PC?
@personauser93 This is just in-game items for the mobile title. Probably 1/3 of which cost so many leaf tickets that casual players won’t see them.
I'm glad it's just bonuses vor Pocket Camp and not the other way around.
Thank God it's not a reverse. I'd hate to have to log in that money hungry trash.
Who's reinstalling? Not me!
@HobbitGamer Thanks for answering @personauser93 thatscthe exact question I was going to ask.
I'm about 40 leafs, leaves?, short of buying Isabellas tree so this will help.
Anybody else worried their physical game delivery is going to be delayed? I'm starting to think this pandemic may he the thing that really gets people going digital.
I'd been playing Pocket Camp since it released right until they announced that paid subscription thing. I don't even feel like touching the app anymore.
I've played the game everyday since it came out, so I'll be getting these items anyway.
Didn't they say in the Direct that there will be special items in New Horizons? It thought this event would have happened later.
Now let me buy the shirt IRL and I'm happy.
The in-game items aren't very hard to get, by the way. Just do the fishing tournament every couple hours.
The only items you need tickets for are the two flags for 50 tickets each. The rest is log-in bonuses and fishing tournament rewards.
Yes, New Horizons will get items as well, but since Nintendo said there will be no connection between the games, they'll likely just be regular ingame downloads.
@personauser93 NH will be getting the OK Motors items
I’ll log back in once items are transferable.
@Manah Where did you find this information out?
I would like to absolutely know as I do not want to miss out on any of the collaboration items in either game.
In the game itself The event started today. Not sure if the gyroid collection will have more new items, but so far I haven't seen anything that's not part of the fishing tourney or log-in set.
can content be transferred to the Switch game?
There's nothing that can get me to come back to this game.
I almost answered yes to “will you be re-installing” then I remembered the micro transaction bs. Just. Can’t. Get. Down. With. It.
Tho I really do wonder if there’ll be anything that sways me to jump back in just for special New Horizons items..
