Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp update adds Happy Homeroom

Nintendo's Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has gotten a major update that includes an interior design minigame, some new produce to acquire, and more.


Have you fallen in love with setting up your mobile dwelling in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp? If so, get ready for another dose of design. Pocket Camp was just on the receiving end of a major update and part of it is Happy Homeroom, an interior design mini-game that lets you show off your knack for feng shui.

With the addition of Happy Homeroom to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp comes a new currency, HH Vouchers. These become available to players level 6 or above and replenish over time. When you use one of the vouchers, you'll use furniture to practice in the Happy Homeroom classes which will be judged by Lottie and others. As you pass the classes, your HH Rank increases and you'll earn things like more HH material to make Golden Series furniture. That level of furniture can be crafted after reaching Amateur Rank 1 in Happy Home Room.

This update, which is live now, doesn't just introduce this new design minigame. There's are new items to find, another minigame to experience, and a fresh way to interact with animals:

  • New Local Produce – Grapes, lemons and lychees are the newest local fruit to be added to the game. While each player has a Local Produce tree in both their Lost Lure Creek and Breezy Hollow locations, they will need to make use of other players’ Market Boxes to obtain the other two regional fruit.
  • Blathers’s Treasure Trek – A new mini-game that involves rolling a die on a map that resembles a board game. Treasure maps earned in this mini-game will reward bells or crafting materials. Special maps will even invite new animals to your campsite!
  • Pete’s Parcel Service – A new and handy way to level up your friendship with animals. By selecting this service, Pete will complete animal requests for you without you needing to visit their locations. What a nice pelican!

      It's like a mini version of the Happy Home designer game, which I didn't think was worth a full game at the time.

      It is giving me a reason to build new furniture at least. I have already maxed out all the residents in the game at this point, without ever buying leaf tickets, I might add.
