Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a cute free-to-play mobile game that allows players to build camps with their mates to enjoy the simple things in life such as fishing, gathering fruit, and collecting bugs for adorable animals that emotionally blackmail everyone into being their slaves through the biggest puppy eyes. Unfortunately, the Nintendo community isn't able to relax by a campfire, sing kumbaya, and enjoy the Hello Kitty crossover thanks to communication error 802-5809.
But, instead of being in the fetal position and sucking your thumb as you wait for the game to act accordingly once more, is there an easy fix for the error?
Is Animal Crossing Pocket Camp down? Communication error 802-5809!
Today, some members of the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp society have expressed their dismay on Twitter over not being able to sign into the game.

In even more bad news, the error code isn't anything new as Animal Crossing players have vented their frustrations about it in the past in the search for a resolution.
A fix hasn't been provided, though, so the only recommendable solution is to be patient and simply wait for it to start working again.
On the brighter side of things, the development team is currently investigating the conundrum with no ETA provided.
Hopefully the issue won't be around for too long as there's a dozen animals stranded without anyone available to do their busywork.
