Animal Crossing is still coming to mobile in 2017, according to aWaypointinterview with Nintendo. Announced in 2016, the game was delayed without a defined release window. However, fans of Nintendo's fantasy slice of life game won't have to wait much longer.
Nintendo keeps coming at us with Fire Emblem Heroes updates, and it doesn't look like that trend is stopping anytime soon. The folks behind the game have just announced the new War of the Clerics Voting Gauntlet, expected to start next Tuesday.
The Legend of Zelda is the next Nintendo mobile game following Animal Crossing, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal citing unnamed sources. The same report says that Animal Crossing will be going mobile in the latter half of 2017, so we can likely expect Zelda sometime in early 2018 if all goes smoothly.

If you’re wondering what’s going on in the wider world of portable gaming, our sister site PocketGamer has you covered.
Each week we like to check in on the PG team and see what they’ve been preoccupied with. From the latest on the Nintendo Switch to the best mobile games of the moment, there’s much to discuss.
Here are the hottest topics that have been getting the PocketGamer crew excited over the past seven days or so.
Generation 2 finally launched in Pokémon GO, unleashing a brand new batch of Pokémon into the wild. Even before the update went live people were speculating on how to catch elusive Pokémon like the legendary "dogs", Unknown, and whether or not there would be new regional exclusive Pokémon. The answer to that last question is a resounding yes, it turns out, thanks to the astute researchers over on The Silph Road subreddit.
At long last, Niantic Labs finally unleashed the Generation 2 Pokémon into the wild. Pokémon GO trainers are scrambling to grab up this new set of 80 Pokémon. There are some special new tricks required to catch all of these new beasties, though. Some of the original 151 Pokémon have new evolved forms that require special items. Meanwhile, there are two brand new Eeveelutions for you to acquire. Let's go over the finer details. Onward, young trainer!
It’s exciting to see Nintendo delving into the mobile sphere, regardless of whether it’s to give fans another platform to enjoy their fans or simply a sound business venture. Two of the company's announced mobile games have finally come to fruition, but they were slightly soiled by iffy free-to-play mechanics and other foibles. Nintendo’s mobile future was called into question, but now things are looking a little sunnier with the latest Fire Emblem Heroes update.
Fire Emblem Heroes received a sizeable update first thing this morning. The update features a batch of fresh content along with a few updates to the game's systems.
Well, after some, frankly, disappointing updates to Pokémon GO, fans are finally getting what they've always wanted - 80 brand new Pokémon, likely from Generation II. We'll be able to catch the Johto region starters--Totodile, Chicorita, and Cyndaquil--along with Pokémon like Bellossom and the new Eeveelutions, Espeon and Umbreon.
Pokémon GO is kicking off its Valentine's Day festivities today, washing the app in waves of pink, hearts, and cutesy Pokémon. Niantic has a bunch of sweet treats for Pokémon GO addicts this time around. And yes, we're talking lots and lots of candy.
From today until February 15, you'll earn double candy every time you catch, hatch, or transfer a Pokémon. Keep your buddy close at hand, too -- they'll be scooping up candy twice as fast for the duration of the event.
Perhaps most importantly, though, this Valentine's Day event is the perfect chance to finally hatch some of the elusive baby Pokémon that were added to the game a few weeks ago. These new, second generation Pokémon are tough to catch, as they can only be hatched from eggs and those eggs are mixed with all of the older Pokémon you probably already have. Now, though, Cleffa, Igglybuff, and Smoochum will all hatch more frequently from eggs.
If that's not enough for you, lures will now last for six hours, too. Chansey, Clefairy, and other pink Pokémon can also be caught at a higher rate.
How do you think the Valentine's Day event holds up to past Pokémon GO celebrations? Share your thoughts in the comments!
