Animal Crossing Direct coming Tuesday

Animal Crossing Nintendo Direct

Nintendo's October 24 announcement will focus exclusively on Animal Crossing mobile games, as the company confirmed that there will be no updates on any other topics including another mobile, Nintendo Switch or Nintendo 3DS software.

Confirmed on Monday by Nintendo, the Direct will take place on October 24 where players can expect to see a wealth of information about the popular series' transition to the mobile platform. I'm pretty confident we'll finally see some gameplay for this anticipated mobile Nintendo title. The disclaimer is likely to not get anyone's hopes up too high for a surprise announcement about other Animal Crossing titles that may or may not be in the works. Will Tom Nook become the harbinger of microtransaction hell? Or being conned out of money at Redd's traveling art gallery while sitting on the toilet?

There's a special Nintendo Direct presentation surrounding the game planned for Wednesday, Oct. 25 at 12 p.m.in Japan, and 11 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Oct. 24.

Last month an analyst managed to drag Animal Crossing for mobile back into the spotlight by taking a punt on a December release, but we've had nothing the way of concrete news until, well, 48 hours from now. Let us know in the comments section below.
