Nintendo knows you want Mother 3 localized and Animal Crossing on Switch, has no news to share right now

Do you want to see Mother 3 released in the West? How about Animal Crossing on Switch? You would be one of millions that want the same thing. In an IGN interview with Reggie Fils-Aime, the big guy says that Nintendo is indeed aware of your requests, but doesn't have anything to announce.

On Animal Crossing

“When we have something to announce, we will. Fill in the blank of your favorite franchise. Our mentality will be we'll announce information close to its launch date versus teasing people for years on end.

I did see a lot of internet memes with sad faces from the Animal Crossing group. We see tremendous opportunity in using the mobile platform to introduce IP to consumers who may not be as familiar. Animal Crossing is a great example. Tremendous interaction with Pocket Camp. Fans are really enjoying that experience. We're introducing it to new consumers. That bodes well for whenever the next Animal Crossing might come."

Mother 3

“Again, we know, I know there's a fan base for that title. All I could say is we're aware. It's something that we always think about in terms of where there are opportunities to reintroduce IP to fans, to do it in a way that builds new fans, we're certainly aware. No promises, no commitments one way or the other, but we're aware. It's interesting. I show up at the Belasco [theater] and one fan is saying ‘Hi, Reggie!’ and another is saying ‘where's Mother 3?’"
