    I just hope it will not be a full fledged Animal Crossing game.
    That needs to be on Switch.

    They need to make it a community AR game, like Pokemon Go.

    I want it to be a companion app.
    Like you can get bells and furniture from it or something, that you can use on Animal Crossing Switch.

    Why would you not want this game to be good? And besides, they aren't going to release a companion app to a game that isn't out or even announced. It'll be an Animal Crossing game. Sorry.

    It can be good, but it can't be a proper Animal Crossing. I particularly hate touch-only controls.

    I whole-heartedly agree with Tommy. This is all fine and good, but they really need to be focusing on a Switch Animal Crossing game and hopefully that’s happening. It’s fine if Nintendo wants to dip into the mobile market, but it’s not fine (in my opinion) if that takes away from their games on their console. I’m fine with them doing both, but I don’t want them to skip AC on Switch or even skip a 2D Mario or Mario Maker due to Super Mario Run.

    Yeah, it better not be an actual animal crossing game.

    I think it'll be animal crossing lite with microtransactions and possibly some communication with the Switch version. Sorry of like how Fire Emblem was not a true part of the series

    You guys understand that Nintendo doesn't actually develop any of these games, right? They just oversee development. I think DeNa is doing AC, IS did Fire Emblem Heroes, etc...

    I wouldn't get your hopes up. We already know about Pokemon and Metroid Prime 4, so since those are announced, I would expect them to be released before any console version of Animal Crossing. I think this mobile game is to tide us over. Hopefully it has enough of the main series functionality to make it fun for a while.

    We really need a new game. New Leaf came out in 2013, so it will be 5 years old next year.
    And they need to do a lot of new things in the Switch version. Bigger towns, more than 4 people that can visit at a time, more intricate mini games, the ability to design your town from scratch (roads, waterfalls, rivers, mountains etc.), more places to visit (towns, mountains, islands, snowy mountains, forests etc.)And more cool stuff that Nintendo can come up with.

    I just don’t want them delaying major releases because of this phone crap. That’s all I’m saying. I’m not saying they would, but we haven’t seen a REAL Animal Crossing on a Nintendo home console since the Wii. It’s time.

    Well the same could be said for Metroid Prime - the 3rd came out over 10 years ago. At least with Animal Crossing we've had the 3DS. I get what you're saying, and 100% agree that a new Animal Crossing on Switch would be astounding, but my gut tells me not to expect one any time soon.

    You’re a dream crusher. Have I ever told you you’re my least favorite mouse? At around 11:30 p.m. PACIFIC time last night I realized I don’t enjoy “The” Wonderful 101.

    11PM? Who picks these times? Anyhoo Animal Crossing has the potential to be a huge money maker for Nintendo on mobile... It's pretty much the perfect series for it. I'll check it out, but since it's mobile my expectations are very low.

    The only game that Nintendo didn't directly make was Pokemon Go. But as I understand it DeNA is pretty much just helping Nintendo with all the back end stuff while Nintendo does all the development. They even moved the guy who'd produced all the MK games lead the mobile team as I recall.

    It's probably one of their most kiddie games, and the direct for it is at 11pm.

    It's kiddie so kids don't want to play it. Only people over the age of 18 play Animal Crossing so it's all good

    I think it's 11PM because of Japan. It's 5AM over here.

    I thought they did a great job transferring a lot of what new leaf had to offer, especially when considering this is a mobile game. I was actually pretty impressed. I'll give it a try for sure! I like that they'll be doing seasonal stuff and exclusive items. It also seems like the microtransactions are only for speeding up the process, which is funny because there is no way to speed things up in the main line games...haha

    Huh. It looks like Animal Crossing lite lol... Which I guess makes total sense. I might play with it a bit, but I said the same thing about FE: Heroes and I've barely touched that.

    It doesn't have enough things to interest me.
    It would be cooler if it was like FarmVille, where you can like build the best farm, and be better than your friends.
    But since it's Animal Crossing, it would be a town you managed instead of a farm.

    So does it use AR, or is it just a plain game?

    There's no release date. They just said late November. There's also no price but it's likely free to play
