Animal Crossing Mobile Nintendo Direct set for October 24

This new mobile launch will be the focus of the next Nintendo Direct, which will be hosted later this week. Nintendo's October 24 announcement will focus exclusively on Animal Crossing mobile games, as the company confirmed that there will be no updates on any other topics including another mobile, Nintendo Switch or Nintendo 3DS software. 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.

While a mobile version of Animal Crossing is certainly interesting, it doesn't really compare with the notion of a fully-fledged Animal Crossing game on the Nintendo Switch.

This will be the first time we'll see what form Animal Crossing will take as a smartphone game. Imagine being hassled by mortgage lender Tom Nook while on your morning commute, on the Switch's crisp 720p touchscreen display?


Nintendo is finally ready to talk about the mobile Animal Crossing this week.

In an announcement to Nintendo's Japanese site today, the company revealed that it will broadcast a new Nintendo Direct on October 25 at 12 PM JST.
