Animal Crossing: New Horizons X Pocket Camp Event coming in Mid-March with collaboration items

3 months ago 5 Comments

The upcoming crossover event between Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp finally has a time-frame set for when it will begin, thanks to a loading screen!

According to a new loading screen appearing in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp today, there will be an Animal Crossing: New Horizons Crossover Event coming in Mid-March 2020. No more details have been announced inside Pocket Camp yet, but we did get information regarding the game in the Animal Crossing Direct last month.

Near the end of the Animal Crossing Direct, a set of collaboration items for inside both New Horizons and Pocket Camp were announced and shown off in a few quick screenshots, with more details promised at a later date.

Each Animal Crossing game will receive a set of special items celebrating the opposite game, so it’s likely playing each game will be required to receive the items, but we don’t know for sure yet exactly how this will work.

Pocket Camp themed items like OK Motors and the Fortune Cookie Stand will appear in New Horizons, while New Horizons themed items like the Dodo Airlines seaplane and various Nook Inc. branded materials will debut in Pocket Camp.

More details on exactly how this event will work should be announced in the coming days as Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has a scheduled maintenance window planned for Wednesday, March 11th from 7 PM PDT to 11 PM PDT. Given that Nintendo advertised the downtime with an image showing some special items seen in the Direct, it’s basically a sure bet!

It’s worth noting that it’s always possible the Crossover Event in Pocket Camp isn’t actually directly connected to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in any way. But given that both sets of items were announced together in the Animal Crossing Direct and it’s a perfect opportunity for Nintendo to drive Pocket Camp game installs, we’re guessing they will be connected!

Assuming that playing Pocket Camp is involved to receive the collaboration items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons though, we’ll be sure to have a handy guide posted as soon as possible to make it easy as possible for you to get the special Pocket Camp themed items.

What do you think of the collaboration items for both games? Would you want to get your hands on the Pocket Camp items in your New Horizons game, or do you not really care? Let me know in the comments below!

The Direct made me redownload Pocket Camp and I’ve been playing it almost daily, making sure that I rack up Leaf Tickets just in case they make me use them for a collaboration item, as well as finishing off the camper loan and earning plenty of Bells after the fact. I was really into Pocket Camp when it first came out, and it hasn’t lost all of its charm yet, even if there’s a lot of Leaf Ticket intrusion. Hopefully LTs (man, I haven’t said LTs in a long time) won’t be necessary for the items in New Horizons itself… Read more »

I would want my fortune cookie items to transfer over to horizons from my campstorage , and maybe my RV could be coming to horiIins to that would be cool


It looks like there are mini figurines of campers, but I wonder how they might be customized or if they’re just static. I doubt there’ll be a full-sized camper.

As for the Fortune Cookie items, I really don’t think those will transfer. This isn’t Pokemon, we’ve never been able to transfer furniture between games in the past.


I have an older phone, and I can’t even play this game anymore ;-; too heavy.


It’d be nice if the furniture introduced in Pocket Camp made it to New Horizons, a lot of it is really cute.

I stopped playing Pocket Camp when they introduced the payed subscription service but I’ll redownload it briefly if I can use it to get items for New Horizons. I have over 2000 leaf tickets from when I played it every day (without paying for it).
