Animal Crossing: Camp Pocket is coming in late November 2017, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play it early!
The game is now live on Google Play and the App Store in Australia. Below you’ll find instructions on how to download and play it.
If you are an Android user…
If you are using iOS…
You will need to have an Australian Apple ID set up on your iPhone or iPad. Sign out of your current account on iCloud first, which can be done by entering Settings, then selecting iCloud.
While creating your iTunes account, you’ll be asked to select a country. Choose Australia.
After selecting your country, you’ll be asked to enter a billing address. Search for the address of any government building or McDonald’s in Australia, and fill it as your billing address. For billing information, select “none”. If the “none” option is absent, you may have to purchase an Australian iTunes code online to enter for verification purposes.
Once you’ve installed Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, you will be asked to sign in to your Nintendo Account. At the time of writing only Australian Nintendo Accounts can access the game, so you have two options: Create an Australian Nintendo Account through the app itself, or link your current Nintendo Account to the app (which means you have to change its country to Australia).
The choice is yours – if you link your current Nintendo Account, you can earn Platinum Points from Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on your main account. However, this may affect access to your purchases on the Nintendo eShop if your account is linked to a Nintendo Switch, so please bear this in mind.
You can change your Nintendo Account’s country here.
