Sucks to be a gamer in Malaysia for now.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will be available to mobile devices worldwide tomorrow according to the official Twitter account of Nintendo America.

First scheduled for release last November, the game was available to selected countries back then including Australia. However with this new announcement, we are pretty sure it will hit the rest of countries in the list as shown on their official site–
- Czech Republic
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- United Kingdom
- United States
And yes. Malaysia is missing from that list. Again. A weird development to leave Malaysia out of the initial release loop considering that a recent report listed Malaysia as the leading country in SEA when it comes to customer spend on video games – ahead of Thailand and Singapore who are in the initial release list. According to a report by Newzoo, Malaysian gamers generated US$589.4 million in 2017. A silver lining would be that Nintendo assured that the list isn’t final and more countries will be added to it in the near future. Not too long, we hope. We will keep you posted on any developments at this front.
