Nintendo’s next two smartphone games, based on Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem, will be free-to-play, the company has revealed.
The two apps will be more “pure-game apps” than Nintendo’s first app, the social media platform Miitomo, according to DeNA chief executive Isao Moriyasu. As is standard with the free-to-play model, both will feature microtransactions, though Nintendo hasn’t revealed how it plans to implement the microtransactions or what, exactly, will be on sale.
There’s no word on when exactly the Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem mobile games will be released, but Nintendo’s promised that they’ll arrive before autumn. These will be games number two and three in Nintendo’s previously stated plan to release five mobile apps before March 2017, with the first being Miitomo.
Both apps will run on both iOS and Android devices.
