Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp – All the Events and Content updates (December 2017)

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

Since Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a smartphone game, with micro-transactions as business model, it’s going to get various events and content updates on a regular basis. Just like Fire Emblem Heroes (and to a lesser extent, Miitomo), the goal is to make sure players keep playing… and spending, obviously.

On this page, we’re going to list all the events and content updates for Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. This post is only for the most recent updates, with the older ones going into archives posts, that will be linked at the bottom of this page.

NB: a new day in the game starts at  10PM PT / 11PM PDT / 1AM ET / 2AM EDT / 6AM GMT / 7AM BST / 7AM CET / 8AM CEST / 3PM JST.
