The Animal Crossing franchise is coming to mobile devices in 2018 with Animal Crossing: Animal Crossing New Leaf.
The game will be released on October 21, 2018, and will be available on iOS, Android, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
It will be an “unparalleled” addition to the Animal Crossing universe, Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime said during the Nintendo Direct today.
“This is a big game for us, and it’s the next big thing for the Animal Series.
It’s an incredible game for everyone,” he said.
The announcement of the game came on the heels of Nintendo releasing its first game in five years, Animal Crossing Ultimate: Wild World, which was a hit.
The Nintendo Direct included a new trailer that included footage of the first game, which featured the same characters, themes, and game mechanics as the new game.
The trailer was also accompanied by a video that showed off some of the new features.
“I can’t wait for you to experience it, and I hope you enjoy it,” Filsaime said.
“It’s been an absolute pleasure to create this wonderful game for the fans, and we are very excited to share it with you.”
A Nintendo representative declined to comment.
Nintendo will release Animal Crossing on September 25, 2019, and the Animal Family, Animal Park, Animal Kingdom, and Animal Crossing theme park games will be made available for free.
