Nintendo delays Animal Crossing again, won't share sales data on Super Mario Run
And while we'll get Fire Emblem: Heroes on mobile this Thursday, fans of the Animal Crossing franchise will have to wait a bit more than expected. During Nintendo's third-quarter earnings call, the company announced that the still untitled mobile version of Animal Crossing will come in the next financial year, which means between April 2017 and March 2018. An exact date was not specified, but if we had to guess, we'd say that the game will be released sooner rather than later.
Additionally, the Japanese entertainment behemoth reported net profit of 64.7 billion yen, which is around $569 million, with 174.3 billion yen ($1.5 billion) in revenue. To no one's surprise, the most profitable products for Nintendo were the two new Pokemon games for the 3DS, Pokemon Sun and Moon, which sold almost 15 million units combined, followed by Super Mario Maker on the same platform with two million units sold.
