Many mobile games nowadays often connect with the main release, which is normally available on more advanced hardware. For example, we’ve seen The PokĂ©mon Company encourage compatibility between PokĂ©mon GO and PokĂ©mon: Let’s GO on the Nintendo Switch in recent times.
It appears the upcoming Switch game Animal Crossing: New Horizons – due out in 2020 – will be a completely standalone experience. While it’s hard to say if there’ll be any support applications made available for this game at this point in time, what we can now confirm is the new entry in the lifestyle sim won’t have direct connectivity with the previous 2017 mobile title, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
In an interview with IGN at E3, Nintendoâ€™s Aya Kyogoku explained New Horizons and Pocket Camp were two unique games. In saying this, there’s still expected to be “collaboration items” planned for the two games.
â€śWe want to make sure to separate the gameplay because we feel theyâ€™re two different types of games.”
We assume this means fans of the series are safe from any mobile elements, which have a tendency to suck the life out of certain video game series.
Interestingly, the only mobile connection we should expect to see in New Horizons is the fictional Nook Phone, which is essentially a phone you’ll receive from the greedy raccoon Tom Nook â€“ allowing you to access various apps (menus) within the game that let you browse furniture or tools you would like to craft, use your phone’s camera and much more.
