Animal Crossing mobile game reconfirmed for this fiscal year
Originally expected to make its way into our smartphones sometimes around Fall 2016 and then delayed to March 2017, last time we heard about the Animal Crossing mobile game was in January, when we got the news in a financial statement that it’ll be delayed again, to the next fiscal year (April 1st 2017 – March 31st 2018).
And while we’re eagerly waiting for a more precise (and final… ahem) release date, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima stated during last company’s financial results briefing Q&A that Animal Crossing mobile is still slated for this fiscal year. At least it’s something.
Q: The Animal Crossing application for smart devices was not discussed this time. What was the reason for this?
A: As I discussed during the previous Corporate Management Policy Briefing, we will release the
Animal Crossing application for smart devices during this fiscal year. We will announce the specific release date before we commence distribution.
