Nintendo explained in great detail why Animal Crossing wouldn't be fit for smartphones back in 2014, expressing that the game's complexity wouldn't translate. Tomorrow, we'll be tuning into a Nintendo Direct fully focused on Animal Crossing mobile. Oh how far we have come.
Nintendo recognizes the immense potential of putting their major franchises on mobile platforms, like with Super Mario Run, which is why the discussion of moving Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing even came up before. In 2016, mobile versions of Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing were announced for Android and iOS and we're finally getting some more details for one of them after a couple delays.
Tune in on Oct. 24 at 8:00 p.m. PT/11:00 p.m. ET for a roughly 15-minute Animal Crossing Mobile Direct video presentation. In the press release, Nintendo explained that there will be no updates on any other topics including other mobile, Nintendo Switch or Nintendo 3DS software.
