Animal Crossing Mobile Gets a Direct This Week

Animal Crossing Mobile Gets a Direct This Week

On October 24, all will be revealed.

Way back when Nintendo announced its mobile plans, the first games mentioned were based in the Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing properties. Miitomo roughly kicked offer the proceedings, Super Mario Run came in December 2016, and Fire Emblem Heroes launched in February 2017. Month after month, there was nothing about Animal Crossing though.

Until now. Nintendo announced today the official Nintendo Direct for the Animal Crossing mobile game. It'll kick off on October 24, 2017 at 8pm PT/11pm ET.

It's worth noting that Nintendo says there will be no information on any other software, be that for mobile platforms, Nintendo Switch, or 3DS. Fans are still waiting to see when Animal Crossing makes its Switch debut alongside the biggest and best on the platform. There's even speculation that the mobile and Switch games will connect up in some fashion.

What shenanigans are you in store for? Are you ready for Tom Nook to take you on a financial ride on mobile? Given that's it's mobile, that ride may involve actual money from some folks. We'll keep you posted when the Direct kicks off.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
