Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing mobile releases will be 'pure game apps'

Coming from Nintendo's press release...

Both of these (Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing mobile releases) are pure game applications. Compared to Miitomo, they have more prominent game elements, and the game content will tie closely into Nintendo’s dedicated games business. Nintendo will provide more details about these applications closer to their launch period, and aims to have multiple types of apps that appeal to different audiences and different groups of players.

Still kinda vague, but I guess this means the apps will have more in the way of feeling like a traditional game, but they won't act as some sort of "replacement" for the games you get on Nintendo's systems (we did just get FE: Fates recently after all).

Oh well that's good. Totally makes up for 100% lack of Zelda.

One positive thing about Nintendo on the mobile market is that they seem to be trying new things, instead of doing what everyone else does which is copying one of the 4 game templates that are popular and putting a new skin on it.

Well at least this is good news. Aside from the gameplay if they make the "gacha machine" to where it will take your money wanting that piece of furniture then I'm all for it. I hate them but I still love them, how strange (thanks Puzzle and Dragons and FF Record Keeper).

So which is it? An App, or a Game? It still sounds like an App since apps do more linking then anything else.

Different Audiences and Different Groups of Players?
That, sounds ominous. . .

Semantics. Their choice of words is really just to get investors' attention, not to indicate any hint of content.

One could only hope, that is the actual case here.

First FE game I am not getting...

Sorta makes me hope that they'll make a mobile version of Art academy in the future. (Artist, btw)

Moving AA titles over to mobile.... not a good sign.

Good thing that's not what they're doing then.

Uh... Paranoid much?

The idea is good from a business perspective. I trust they will make something interesting from a gameplay perspective.

Only time will tell if they're shooting themselves in the foot or not.

If they made an Animal Crossing trade shop app I would be all over that. Then I can get all the special sets without going through all the hoops.

Welp, I knew this would happen... Nintendo claimed they wouldn't make pure games, and would instead make promotional apps and short games, they sure broke their word on that too quickly. I fear they're going to focus purely on making cheap tablet games with microtransaction begging quirks, to the point where they don't want to make console games anymore. I hate this generation of gaming so much...
