Thoughts?

In an interview with IGN at E3 2019, Nintendo’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.
“We want to make sure to separate the gameplay because we feel they’re two different types of games."



As someone who has played Pocket Camp everyone now and then and does enjoy the game, I am not necessarily mad.  They are separate games/experiences and Im glad everyone will start fresh on the switch. Just wanted to share this confirmation with everyone else

I really didn't like Pocket Camp so I'm glad they're not tying it in. I wouldn't mind giving players some sort of reward starting out for making progress in pocket camp but I'm glad they're not too connected. Pocket camp was an interesting idea and hopefully drew people into Animal Crossing but it was so far away from a main game.

Having not played Pocket Camp, i hope that there's no connection between the two at all.

I’m glad they’re not tying them in together because ACNH already has a ACPC Feel to it (to me anyway).

I only played the app when it first came out to see what it was about, spent a few hours on it but within a month or so stopped, so not having it connect to my switch wouldn't be a issue for me as ive stopped using it long ago.

I don't mind if they have some items that tie in, but I really hope there aren't major features that you have to play Pocket Camp to access. I'm already not liking how much Nintendo seems to be tying all the new Pokemon stuff coming out to Pokemon Go. I really don't want to see that happening with Animal Crossing. I don't do mobile games.

Very happy about this. Pocket Camp sucked all of the fun out of the game. It was a money grab and a tedious grind. Stopped playing it a while back and never looked back.

As someone who has played pocket camp daily since its American launch, I’m glad that the games won’t be connected. I love the idea of starting fresh in a brand new animal crossing game, there is something so nice about it. I’d like to keep pocket camp and ACNH separate.

Pocket Camp became so frustrating to play,  I didn’t like how you can’t buy all the NPC leaf ticket items anymore without paying since the stretch goal rewards went from around x20 leaf tickets to x3 (leaving you with hardly any to spare).   The endless events were repetitive and not fun.   Leaf tickets were overpriced too, A single digital furniture shouldn’t cost $15.   Events became more tedious (butterfly events had added goals, gyroid events required 600 for one item plus the leaf ticket craftables for these events on top of the NPC items would cost serious $$) the last fishing event I played also had an unbeatable goal but it’s not a big deal.  Still very boring to play though.  

I quit the game on the day of e3 because of the New Horizons release date. I wasn’t going to put up with this for another year.  Not me. Nah uh. Nope.  I only continued because there was light at the end of the tunnel (2019 release) I’m so glad the games won’t be connected but I expect that to change,  and even if it does I don’t care anymore.

While I love and enjoy playing Pocket camp, its better knowing that the new game will be separate from the app as the only aspect I'd really hoped for them to implement into NH were the items. I can't wait to see what other cute items they'll introduce/reintroduce. Just hope that the leaf ticket feature won't carry on as many people agree, its an overpriced currency.

Don't fancy contributing from my pocket for a bunch of leaf tickets all for the sake of one item or two

Mind you, they've got to get some support from the game somehow. I haven't spent one pound in the game so far, I earn it all from playing the game, but that's a whole other tangent for a whole other day!

TBH, I'm glad Pocket Camp won't link to new horizons. In my own opinion, the game sucked.

I agree with the general sentiment that it's a good thing they won't be connected.  I'm sure some of the furniture introduced in PC will be in NH, just as furniture from other previous games have been included in subsequent games.

I did enjoy PC for a while, and stuck with it even after the fortune cookies were introduced.  However, more and more cookies, and several different ones available during the same windows, as well as the chance to purchase one with Bells decreased, just turned me off.  That and the increasing number of event items and themed collections requiring leaf tickets and the ever-growing tediousness of the number of events and nearly unobtainable goals.

I was going to hold on until November, but like someone else already posted in this thread, when it was announced at E3 that the release had been postponed until March, I quit and have never looked back.

I got an email from Nintendo around the holidays, announcing that they were adding 2 subscription plans to PC.  One of them gives more storage, for all the items (mostly leaf ticket) that keep getting added to the game; and the other was to hire Lloid to complete event goals and camper requests while you're offline.  That tells you how grindy the game really is!

I remember a long time ago, back before Pocket Camp launched, there was a hint that it might connect to a future mainline game - so of course it only seemed logical that they must've meant the inevitable title for the Switch. Given this, it initially seemed quite puzzling to me when they confirmed that it won't connect to New Horizons. (Not that I mind, personally - I briefly tried Pocket Camp and didn't find it to be engaging, so I immediately dropped it.)

However, more recently, datamining has shown that there may have been scrapped Pocket Camp connectivity in Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Welcome Amiibo. That finally explained the older hint, though I think that it's for the better that they changed their plans - Pocket Camp is clearly a completely different sort of experience to a mainline Animal Crossing game.

^Very interesting! I don't see how a mobile game would've connected to the 3DS though. Maybe that's why they scrapped it? Hm. We may never know.

Yeah, I wonder if it was too much effort to deal with setting things up for a one-time login/link of your account? It certainly would've been more convoluted than how they handled unlocking the giant-sized items that you could get from having a Happy Home Designer save-file (you could swap the cartridges over, even though you normally can't remove them when the game is running!).

Pocket Camp ended up getting those giant furniture items, incidentally, so hopefully New Horizons will inherit them, too. I loved those.

Chiyoko helped me with those in HHD. Had to back-and-forth send amiibo cards and such.

But yeah they're pretty awesome. Hopefully they're easier to obtain in NH. Maybe as town decorations or something.

This is good since I never bothered with Pocket Camp as I saw it for what it was from the beginning (just another pay to play app in disguise as a legitimate Animal Crossing game).

I had to miss out on Pocket Camp due to having an old phone that can't play games well. I was kinda annoyed because it has new characters and furniture I missed out on, but I guarantee they'll be in NH.
