Animal Crossing fans will be delighted to hear that the mobile version of the game is still on track to launch this year. The news was reconfirmed by Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime in a recent interview with Waypoint. Reggie also said that development on the game continues at a good pace and that it will hit mobile devices in 2017. He also said that they will be sharing more information on what to expect from the game in due course.
So, specifically now, Animal Crossing. Animal Crossing development continues quite strongly, the teams are very excited about what they have. It’s an application that is going to launch this year, as we’ve committed. And we’ll be sharing more information in due course. We believe, just as we’ve seen with Pokémon Go, just as we’ve seen with Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem Heroes, we believe that the application will help broaden the user base for Animal Crossing, and it’s going to end up having a positive impact on our dedicated video game business of Animal Crossing.
