    This does worry me. They are leaning towards the behaviors and decisions I was afraid they’d go into when they announced these new directives and focuses…

    And what’s worse I STILL stand by my long-standing assertion that the collective industry has pushed them toward this brink maliciously and with poor reason… and will STILL be the first and worst to criticize them as the dust starts to settle.

  • chancetime

    I become more worried of the state of Animal Crossing. They’re light games yeah, but one thing they weren’t light on was content and gameplay. This went out the window for Amiibo Festival and now…this.

    Still, I won’t fully judge until we see more. It could be a HHD-esque game of it’s own standing.

  • Eww. Please don’t make a exclusive AC game for Mobile, I’d rather you just end the series then devalue it to that level.

    • What is your issue? I’ve been seeing your rant in majority of the recent comment sections. Why does everyone assume that a series becomes terrible when it enter a mobile device. It might just be a small extension to the main game to manage your town on the go. I’m assuming there will be a new Animal Crossing on the NX that will take advantage of the feature. Calm down and allow us yo actual see the title. :L

      • Well last night I was ranting over the bs surrounding Zelda and NX.

        I guess we can wait and see but all Nintendo has done lately has angered me as they don’t seem to care about their franchises anymore, so I don’t have the highest hopes.

    I look forward to seeing what a Mobile Fire Emblem looks like.

    • ronin4life

      I do to honestly, but still moreso worried/upset than excited.

      • キロ

        Me too, don’t worry! You’re not the only one.

        • Adrian Lopez

          But if it’s like this, I’d play

    • MagcargoMan

      They’ll remake the petting minigame as it’s own app, lol.

      • RoadyMike

        Effn’ LOL

  • TheJuiciest

    Ha! They launch mainline on Mobile and I’m done with them. What a joke.

  • *Don’t read replies*

    I hate Mobile gaming.

  • Segata

    RIP Nintendo for me. I played their systems since 1986. I think I am done then

    • Exposer

      Bye then.

  • Melatelo

    Animal Crossing mobile title? Oh no.

  • RickyWill

    I step in…

    I step out.

  • Yolkghost

    I see the animal crossing app being similar to that plaza thing it had on wii u for phones. The fire emblem though? Probably a super easy full game that doesn’t have much story and is just play as many maps as you can before running out of lives

  • Coonfoot

    What is it about mobile that just brings out the worst in gamers?

  • Andrew

    Out of all of the news, this isn’t all that surprising. They said it would be real IP’s rather than something new like Miitomo, and I knew people would be mad no matter what. FE has seen a lot of success in recent years, and AC has been pretty popular too. They’ve proven to work for handheld consoles, making them for mobile makes sense. I am curious to how they’ll play, as well as future plans for each series.

  • Bcardia

    Terrible, simply terrible.
    Boy, I hoped that my favorite Nintendo franchises would be spared from this mobile nightmare. And now here I am, seeing the announcement of a freaking Fire Emblem game for mobile. Yuck…

    • MagcargoMan

      You don’t even know what it’s gonna be. For all we know it could be some little side-game based on something like the My Castle feature in Fates.

      • Bcardia

        Except Nintendo stated that they “aim to offer the great value of a role-playing strategy game”, so it doesn’t sound like it will be just some My Castle side-feature sh*t. Also, the lone fact that this will be a casualized mobile game created for the braindead crowd is enough for me to be disgusted.

        • MagcargoMan

          You say this as if Fire Emblem hasn’t already been casualised.

  • AquaBat

    Nintendo is doing exactly what they said they would do!?

    • Andrew

      It’s even funnier when you consider some of the early outrage at Miitomo. I remember so many people expecting a main Nintendo franchise, and being sooooo disappointed, even when Nintendo tried downplaying it. Now they’re actually doing it, and some people are panicking.

      • Bcardia

        This may come as a surprise for you buddy, but the people who complained about Miitomo and the people who don’t like to see mainline games on mobile are not the same. Because, you know, different people can have different opinions on certain subjects.

        • Andrew

          I understand that, but with how split people are on subjects like this, it feels like a lose-lose situation :/

  • NinetalesCommander

    You know what I am starting to think? That the NX is their next true console and the handheld side from now on is going to be done on mobiles.
    I really hope not.

  • Joachim

    Well…well….Ninetndo is step in mobile gaming micro-transaction!

    • Andrew

      That was a thing done in Miitomo, so this isn’t their first step. If you want to get even more technical, Pokemon Shuffle did it first with mobile. Also, it is possible that these could just be titles you buy once and play… but I doubt it, only because of how rare those seem to be on mobile devices.

      • Joachim

        Pay-Once isn’t a trend. Micro-Transaction is here to stay! it’s what it’s. I’m not a pro-micro transaction model…..Ohh well.

        • Riku0493

          Nintendo knows where it treads on this stuff though. They have been trying several tactics, including splitting up games to be bought in smaller chunks.

          Their last two attempts (or was it Pokémon’s?) at “Free-to-Start” on the 3DS blocks off any more microtransactions for the rest of the save file’s lifetime after hitting a limit of about 35USD.

            No bad tactic! I love it the idea!

          • Andrew

            That could actually be a good tactic if the overall price is lowered. Give people the option to either stay with the free-to-play model, or buy it out right. Personally, it does sound steep at first, but it’s probably made with the idea that you spend the cash over a few weeks, or months.

          • Joachim

            Not bad idea at all!

  • pcenginekid

    Absolutely disgusting. Thanks to miitomo crap and stockholder pressure they’re trying to go full mobile.

    • Ser2k2

      Sorry but everyone wanted Nintendo to release mobile games not only stockholders.

  • KH

    Seeing how they are working with DeNA, I would expect something like Final Fantasy Record Keeper for the Fire Emblem one. Pretty much a highly strippee down vrersion of the real games, that give a taste of the real series, and theough the whole Gallery aspect, it could give a small sight to those games ghat didn’t came westward.

    The Animal Crossing as a companion app would be interesting. It could be to link the most recent game(Animal Crossing NX?) To the app, and like you can’t always keep close to a home consile, the app will permit you to keep tour town in check while on the go, and do minimal things from the game in the app. Decorate, buy clothes, keep your town clean, talk to villagers, etc. But to fish and stuff like that, you will still have to go to the majn game.

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    Well if these games are anything like Miitomo, I got no worries. If this FE mobile thing turns out to be a dating sim I will laugh and play the fudge out of it.

    • MagcargoMan

      That’d be pretty amusing. It’d also help appeal to the waifu-weebs so they can keep that stuff out if the main series.

  • Yolkghost

    i thought about it even more- and the best way to REALLY do the FE mobile would maybe be like a little all stars game that features almost all units from every game and really doesn’t do much plot wise – just little events.

  • Addy the Wanderer

    And then they come out being wallet leeching, buggy and unoptumized games that only sell for brand reconition.

    • Riku0493

      Nah. Nintendo’s been doing that for the last decade already on their own dedicated gaming devices.
