MCV reports on exciting news from Nintendo today, which has revealed that it will be bringing its Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing franchises to the smartphone market, something that fans have been wanting for a long time.
“Both of these are pure game applications,” said Nintendo today. “Compared to Miitomo, they have more prominent game elements, and the game content will tie closely into Nintendo’s dedicated games business.”
Nintendo said that it “will provide more details about these applications closer to their launch period, and aims to have multiple types of apps that appeal to different audiences and different groups of people.”
Nintendo also said that the Fire Emblem smartphone game will be “more accessible” than the previous console and hand-held versions of that franchise, and that the Animal Crossing game will be “connected with the world of Animal Crossing for dedicated gaming systems.”
The Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem games will arrive on iOS and other devices sometime this Autumn.
