Nintendo will release new mobile apps based on the Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing series later this year, the company has announced.
“Building on the positive consumer reaction to Miitomo, Nintendo announced that its next two mobile apps would be based on the familiar and beloved Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing franchises,” Nintendo said in a statement.
“As for the former app, while making it more accessible in comparison to the Fire Emblem games for Nintendo’s dedicated gaming systems, Nintendo aims to offer the great value of a role-playing strategy game. Nintendo will design the latter game so that it will be connected with the world of Animal Crossing for dedicated gaming systems. By playing both Animal Crossing games, users will find increased enjoyment.”
According to Nintendo, both of these apps will be “pure game applications” that will feature “more prominent game elements.” More details will be shared closer to release.
The Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing apps will launch this fall in North America and Europe.
