Kimishima on the thinking behind having Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing on mobile
Later this year, two core Nintendo franchises will be appearing on mobile: Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing. President Tatsumi Kimishima discussed the thinking behind having the two IPs on the likes of smartphones during an earnings conference earlier today.
“These two smartphone games will appeal to different user demographics. We chose two different genres to appeal to as many Nintendo fans as possible.”
Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing mobile apps will launch this fall. With the latter, Nintendo said it will be designed “so that it will be connected with the world of Animal Crossing for dedicated gaming systems.”
