With the newly-announced Super Mario Run due this December, Nintendo has pushed back its previously-announced Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem mobile games to 2017.


Both titles will now launch before the end of March 2017, Business Wire reported.

We hadn't heard anything of either game for some time - and have never seen any screenshots or gameplay - so a delay seemed on the cards.

Nintendo has announced an Animal Crossing Nintendo Direct for November to detail its upcoming Animal Crossing: New Leaf update for 3DS - we may hear the first details of Animal Crossing mobile at the same time.

Both experiences are expected to be games rather than Miitomo-style apps, although likely tailored to the mobiles in a similar way to Super Mario Run. There's more on that here.
