Belgium has been cracking down on games that feature microtransactions and lootboxes, and the latest casualties are Fire Emblem Heroes and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Nintendo has decided to jump in and remove both Fire Emblem Heroes and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp from the region due to the situation. Check out Nintendo's full statement below.
Due to the current unclear situation in Belgium regarding certain in-game revenue models, we have decided to end the service for Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and Fire Emblem Heroes in Belgium. It will therefore no longer be possible to play and download the games from Tuesday 27 August 2019.
Players who still have Orbs and / or Leaf Tickets in their account can continue to use them until the service ends.
In addition, future Nintendo games with similar earnings models will no longer be released in Belgium.
We would like to thank all players in Belgium for playing Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and Fire Emblem Heroes.
As you can see in the statement above, Nintendo is also going to hold back future mobile titles from the region that include similar earnings models.
