Many mobile games nowadays often connect to the main edition, which is usually available on more advanced hardware. For example, we've seen The Pokémon Company encourage compatibility between Pokémon GO and Pokémon: Let's Go on the Nintendo Switch lately.
It seems the upcoming Switch game Animal Crossing: New Horizons – played out in 2020 – will be a completely stand-alone experience. Although it is difficult to say if there are any support applications made available to this game at this time, what we now confirm to be the new entry in the lifestyle sim can not directly connect to the previous mobile title of 201
In an interview with IGN at E3 2019, Nintendo's Aya Kyogoku New Horizons explained and Pocket Camp was two unique games. By saying this, it is still expected to be "collaborative articles" planned for the two games.
"We want to make sure that we separate the game because we think they are two different types of games".
We assume this means that fans of the series are safe from any mobile element, which tends to suck life out of some video game series.
Interestingly, the only mobile connection we would like to see in New Horizons is the fictitious Nook Phone (see above), which is a device you will get from the greedy coon Tom Nook – so you can access various apps (menus) in the game that lets you browse the furniture or tools you want to create, use the phone's camera and much more.
Looking forward to the arrival of Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Are you sorry to hear that the two games will not be online? Tell us below.
