Rover-inspired stuff coming to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp


A familiar face may be making his way to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

A sneak peek at some new Pocket Camp items was posted to the Animal Crossing Twitter account on Jan. 4. The whole image isn’t available—it appears we’re looking at it through a gyroid—but we can see enough to know it’s all Rover-themed.

Nintendo teased Rover back in December, showing the cat’s silhouette in a different tweet. The fan-favorite blue-and-white cat often helps set up Animal Crossing games, but he’s yet to be seen in Pocket Camp. It’s unclear at this time if Rover will become available, or if we’ll only get to cosplay as him.

The image shows a camper wearing a Rover head, as well as Rover’s signature sweater. Two Rover mugs are placed on a table, and there’s a bunch of other items with Rover’s colors that are obscured.

Nintendo hasn’t provided a timeline for the update, but it doesn’t sound like we’ll have to wait very long. “Whoa, what’s all this new stuff?” the tweet asks. “It seems really familiar. Oh… I can’t keep a secret very well at all. Stay tuned!”

Pocket Camp’s New Year’s–themed event is currently ongoing. You’ll be able to collect the new event items using countdown charms until Jan. 11.
