The Pocket Camp AR Camera feels similar to Pokemon Go‘s AR mode. You choose a character, point your camera at an empty space or a table top and drop the character into the real world. You can then choose how the character poses and take pictures of it in the real world.
AR Cabin, on the other hand, takes you out of the real world and puts you in one Animal Crossing House. You can admire the cabin on your own or invite up to 8 characters to hang out with you. If only I had this for real… 😢
With the update on November 19, two AR modes will be added to Pocket Camp. Get even closer to your animal friends with the AR camera and AR cabin! #PocketCampAR pic.twitter.com/BxAtMyJ1Fj

Along with all its new AR features, Pocket Camp now has more customizable camping areas. Nintendo is also offering a one-month trial of the Furniture and Fashion plan (usually $ 8) to encourage Pocket Camp players to collect and use more items.
Unfortunately, the latter Pocket Camp update ends support for some old phones. Nintendo says iPhones need iOS 11 to run Pocket Camp, and that Android phones should run Android 5.0 or later with a 64-but-CPU and 1.5 GB of RAM. Some gamers are complaining that although their device meets the new requirements, they cannot get the update Pocket Camp to work. Nintendo has not responded to complaints about the issue.
