Nintendo confirms Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem for mobile

New mobile games based on Nintendo IPs have been revealed.

Nintendo has confirmed two new mobile games based on their popular IPs Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem, aiming for a release this Fall.

The announcement was made via Business Wire alongside details of the Nintendo NX release date. Though few details were shared, Nintendo did confirm they would contain "prominent game elements, and the game content will tie closely into Nintendo’s dedicated games business" in comparison to Miitomo.

Fire Emblem will create a more "accessible" title in comparison to the main series, and Animal Crossing will be designed to connect to future titles. More details will be revealed closer to release.

Miitomo, Nintendo's first smartphone application, launched in March. It has amassed over 10 million users worldwide and shortly after release topped the free app chart in various stores in the United States. A celebration event will take place April 28th until May 8th.
