Animal Crossing’s first smartphone game was expected to release sometime around Fire Emblem Heroes, the game that it was revealed with, but it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer.
Here’s what Nintendo shared in their consolidated financial highlights:
For smart devices, we plan to release the game application Fire Emblem Heroes on February 2. We will also follow last December’s release of Super Mario Run for iOS with an Android version in March. To accommodate the releases and operation of these applications, we have revised the release schedule for Animal Crossing, which we had originally planned to release during this period. This title will be released during the next fiscal year.
With the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017, that means the new Animal Crossing smartphone game will release sometime starting April 1 at the earliest.
