Nintendo will announce Animal Crossing on mobile tomorrow

Tomorrow, Thursday, the Nintendo company will broadcast a new Nintendo Direct, a recurring event of the company to inform about the news that will arrive in the coming months on the company's platform or games you plan to release on mobile platforms. In the next Nintendo Direct, the Japanese company will talk about Animal Crossing for mobile devices, as announced through the official Animal Crossing account on Twitter.

Since the Japanese company officially announced that it was working on Animal Crossing, in April last year, little or nothing we know about development of this version for mobile devices, while Fire Emblem, announced on the same date, has been available since last February.

On 10/25 at 8:00 a.m. we will broadcast an Animal Crossing Mobile Direct dedicated to the #Animal Crossing game for smart devices.

The last game in this franchise was released in 2012 and was intended only for the Nintendo 3DS., ignoring the Nintendo Wii U, obviously due to the lack of success the console had had on the market. Since then, Nintendo has only released updates for this version, in addition to a spin-off called Happy Home Designer. According to Nintendo's initial plans, Animal Crossing will theoretically arrive on mobile platforms in the form of a spin-off, as has happened so far with Fire Emblem and the legendary Mario Bros.

Before this event was announced, the only news we had about the release of this version for iOS and Android was found in the Wall Street Journal, which published an article last May stating that Animal Crossing for mobile platforms would appear before the end of the year, after several months of . When Animal Crossing for mobile devices hits the market, all that will be missing is the version of The Legend of Zelda, which will be the fifth collaboration with the development studio DeNA, with which Nintendo has partnered to launch its most classic games for mobile platforms.
