    I totally forgot there was going to be a mobile Animal Crossing.

    Fire Emblem Heroes was alright, so here’s hoping. But it’s hard to tell how well this will translate to mobile.

  • Matz

    My guess is that this game will be one of those Mobile Sims of “Get a fuckton of money to build something new and wait an entire day to get that shit built… or spend premium currency to make things a lot faster”, the franchise is perfect for a game like that

    Worst case scenario, it’s a gacha game with a crueler gacha system than FE Heroes and the milking could be worse

  • Ckarasu

    I can see it now: You want to have the one villager with all the sick furniture? Hope you like sub 1% drop rates.

  • InkViper

    Hold onto your wallets, microtransactions in coming.

  • Bitterbear

    And the normies just can’t get enough of it.
