Nintendo: Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem apps on the way

Get ready for at least two more Nintendo apps for your smart phone this year. Nintendo announced that its next two mobile apps will be based on Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing franchises.

Nintendo plans to release both of these applications this fall.

For Fire Emblem, Nintendo plans to make it more accessible in comparison to the Fire Emblem games for Nintendo’s gaming systems. Nintendo said that it aims to offer the great value of a role-playing strategy game while make it more approachable.

Nintendo will design the Animal Crossing mobile game so that it will be connected with the world of Animal Crossing for Nintendo platforms. They said that by playing both Animal Crossing games, users will find increased enjoyment. It’s not known if this is in relation to current Animal Crossing Games (New Leaf or Happy Home Designer) or if the app will be compatible with a new, unannounced Animal Crossing console game.

Both of these apps are going to be pure game applications. Compared to Miitomo, they have more prominent game elements, and the game content will tie closely into Nintendo’s dedicated games business.

Nintendo plans to reveal more information on these titles at a later date.
