 IPHONE NEWS - UPCOMING

Animal Crossing is still coming to mobile in 2017

Reggie's on the case

Summary News Review Screens Videos Articles Tips  
Product: Animal Crossing | Publisher: Nintendo
For: iPhone   Also on: Android, iPad
 
Back when Super Mario Run was announced last year, we also came to understand that there'd be a small number of titles following suit, including Animal Crossing. That quickly delayed past its original 2016 release date, but fear not - it's still on the way. 



During a VICE Waypoint Gaming interview, President of Nintendo America Reggie Fils-Aime said that for Nintendo this year at E3 it was all about focussing on the Switch, for understandable reasons. Given that this was the Nintendo Switch's first E3, and they had such titles and Metroid Prime 4 and Super Mario Odyssey, it's not surprising that mobile wasn't really taking centre stage...or any stage. 

However, when prompted about Animal Crossing, Fils-Aime responded: "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."

Fils-Aime goes on to say: "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."

Where the game is in development, we don't know. There's been no artwork or preliminary screenshots, but it's positive news at least. I wouldn't be surprised if we'd be looking at a holiday 2017 release. 

What do you guys think? Are you still excited to have an Animal Crossing mobile game on the way?
