Nintendo has scheduled one of their Nintendo Direct presentations that will be dedicated to the reveal of Animal Crossing for smartphones on October 24th. During the presentation, Nintendo says that it will be delivering information for a mobile version of Animal Crossing and it appears that the live stream will dedicated solely to this game only.
Nintendo’s site says that news on Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch or Nintendo 3DS will not be announced, nor will they cover any other mobile games other than the reveal of Animal Crossing for phones. The disclaimer is likely to not get anyone’s hopes up too high for a surprise announcement about other Animal Crossing titles that may or may not be in the works.
With the Nintendo Switch having a huge year, fans of the series are patiently waiting for news on the popular franchise and when it’s coming to the hybrid console.
The presentation will run on October 24th at 8:00pm PT and will last for approximately 15 minutes.
Depending on how it’s handled an Animal Crossing mobile title could be a good fit for phones. It’s already a game that is best played on the go in short bursts, and Nintendo has a huge opportunity to deliver another hugely popular mobile game as they did in Super Mario Run.
Details regarding the pricing, release date, and gameplay will likely be revealed through the presentation.
