Last year Nintendo launched Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on mobile which is the latest addition to the Animal Crossing franchise. For those who enjoy this lighthearted and cute game, you might be interested to learn that Nintendo has filed for a trademark for a potentially new Animal Crossing game.

The trademark was filed in Japan, but based on the translation of the trademark filing, it describes the title as being “software for a home video game machine, portable electronic game machine, and smartphone devices.” Given that we’ve already seen the release of Pocket Camp on mobile, we doubt that the next title will also be for mobile, and that perhaps we could be looking at a new Animal Crossing title for the Nintendo Switch.

This is something that players have been clamouring for, and given that the previous Animal Crossings have essentially found their way onto almost every Nintendo console released, a Switch release wouldn’t be entirely out of the question (although when would be a better question).

There is no official release date or title or even a sign that Nintendo is working on it, save for this recent trademark filing, so we guess we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime players can check out Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp if they’re looking for something to tide them over until then.
