Nintendo’s Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem smartphone games will be free to download, according to partner company DeNA.
“Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing are both free-to-start apps,” DeNA chief executive Isao Moriyasu told The Wall Street Journal.
Compared to Miitomo, Nintendo’s social-networking app, these next two apps are “pure-game apps,” Moriyasu added.
Both games were briefly introduced late last month. Animal Crossing will be designed so that it will be connected with the world of Animal Crossing for Nintendo’s dedicated gaming systems. Fire Emblem will be made more accessible compared to the titles on its dedicated gaming systems, while continuing to offer the value of an RPG.
