-text c-gray-1″ >Collect fruit, trade it with villagers, build furniture, rinse, repeat. That’s been the experience with Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp thus far, and if it’s getting tedious, know that there’s an update coming soon that’ll add some variety to the mix. Next month, you’ll be able to start crafting clothes like shirts, pants and shoes. Players will also gain access to a garden. As you might expect, the garden is where you can plant flowers, and you can even water friends’ flower beds for them.

At this point, the flowers could just be another resource type for building stuff (like apples), but there’s every chance that gardening could be a full-blown new activity. We won’t know until we get our hands dirty. Even with this update, Pocket Camp is a far cry from full-fat Animal Crossing, but it’s a step in the right direction. Compared to something like Nintendo’s Fire Emblem Heroes, though, it’s feeling pretty sparse at the moment.
