Nintendo Tokyo is set to open this coming Friday, and we've already shown off the Animal Crossing kitchenware that will be hitting the shelves. Now, thanks to Famitsu, we've been given a more in depth look at some of the upcoming displays, and a sneak peek at some new Animal Crossing merch!

There also seems to be a piece of fabric shown off, that could be either a tea towel or a t-shirt, and maybe some coasters.

Paid Membership Service Coming to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

It's been a while since we've posted about Pocket Camp, but it seems the mobile app will soon be receiving a paid membership service similar to Mario Kart Tour's Gold Pass, set to release on November 21st in Japan.

Currently, not much is known about the upcoming membership service, other than what's been provided in the in-game notification. There will be two plans, the first will allow you to appoint one lucky animal as a camp caretaker to get extra help around your campsite, the other will let you receive fortune cookies and store furniture in your warehouse.



More information is said to come on November 20th, which will be detailed in videos.

As previously reported, Nintendo Live 2019 would be happening on October 13th and 14th, and Day 1 of Nintendo Live went off with a bang, and whilst we didn't get any new information on New Horizons, we did get a look at their incredibly cute Animal Crossing booth. They even held an hour long Splatoon concert, with a surprise appearance by K.K. Slider himself!




As mentioned, most of what we got was an Animal Crossing themed booth, but as previously reported many characters would be making appearances for photo opportunities, including Tom Nook, Timmy, Tommy K.K. Slider, and Isabelle. Though Isabelle's future in New Horizons has been left unclear, this certainly seems to imply she'll still be a big presence in the game.
