The animals in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp have already begun celebrating Valentine’s Day.
Players can celebrate with them by logging into Pocket Camp to receive a free reward from the Nintendo team. What’s up for grabs? A chocolate valentine adorned with a bright pink bow. “To celebrate the loveliest day of the year, your favorite animal friends have a sweet gift for you,” Nintendo said in an in-game notice.
The gift will automatically appear in all player mailboxes. To collect it, players just have to log-in today, navigate to the mailbox, and click on the chocolate heart to put it into the inventory. The item can be placed in player campsites to decorate for Valentine’s Day.
Five new animals are expected to be added to the game soon, according to Nintendo.
Nintendo hasn’t said exactly when these animals will make their way into the game, but they’re expected to come alongside a major game patch that will hit soon. Nintendo is implementing a period of downtime today to do maintenance on the game, and the changes could come as soon as that time is over.
