This week began with some discouraging news for Animal Crossing fans. Nintendo recently announced that Fire Emblem Heroes would be coming to iPhone and iPad on February 2nd, but has now announced that the mobile version of Animal Crossing will be released later than expected. Animal Crossing was expected to reach iOS devices sometime in March, but has been ruled out for the time being.
Animal Crossing has been a very popular game on consoles, which has sold over 27 million copies . It is a simulation of a human player living in a village inhabited by anthropomorphic animals.
Animal Crossing will arrive in the second quarter of 2017
With respect to the delay of its debut in iOS the company explained in a press release:
Nintendo’s fiscal year ends on 31 March, which means that April would be the earliest possible release date for the game, although it could be later.
iOS version of Animal Crossing
Animal Crossing allows players to enjoy daily life in a village full of friendly animals. The game incorporated the passage of time, just like in the real world, special parties.
The game has been released in several different versions, and it is not yet known what features will become the iOS game. The iOS version of Super Mario Run racked up 10 million downloads and $4 million on the first day. The company revealed today that it has reached 78 million downloads and has generated more than $50 million in sales, better than analysts’ expectations, but it does not meet the company’s goals.
