Nintendo Brings 'Fire Emblem' and 'Animal Crossing' to Mobile

Nintendo has announced its plans concerning its future mobile offerings. Joining its first ever mobile app "Miitomo" will be its two new mobile games based on its two popular titles "Fire Emblem" and "Animal Crossing."

The company detailed its new games during its recent earnings announcement for the fiscal year ended March 31. With "Miitomo" already reaching 10 million users worldwide since launching in March, the duo would be a sensible expansion for its mobile gaming division, according to Forbes.

The "Fire Emblem" app will be a turn-based strategy role-playing game. With the latest "Fire Emblem" games playable on the Nintendo 3DS, the company aims to make the series more accessible through mobile.

Meanwhile, the "Animal Crossing" app will be connected with the rest of the series that's also playable on Nintendo's dedicated gaming systems. The company hopes gamers who play "Animal Crossing" on both Nintendo devices and mobile will be able to "find increased enjoyment." The game's uncomplicated controls would translate well in mobile, according to Forbes, and it can be addictive as well.

The new "Fire Emblem" and "Animal Crossing" mobile games are slated to launch in the fall.

In addition to detailing its new mobile games, Nintendo also announced details for its upcoming Nintendo NX, the new "Legend of Zelda" game, and the company's participation on the E3 2016.

"As we report the results of the last fiscal year, we also look forward to an exciting period ahead with further growth in our mobile business, new products for our dedicated video game systems and continued progress in our efforts to increase the number of consumers experiencing our IP through games, licensing and expanded entertainment," said Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima.

Nintendo said it will provide more details about its new mobile games as their release date comes closer.
