A few weeks ago, Nintendo announced that they would be releasing two new mobile applications based on Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing. Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima declined to comment on the games’ pricing models at the time, but now DeNA CEO Isao Moriyasu has shed some light on the matter. According to Moriyasu, the apps will be free-to-start, meaning that they can be downloaded for free but will include microtransactions; a Nintendo spokeswoman confirmed this to The Wall Street Journal. Moriyasu also stated that the two apps will be “pure-game apps,” reiterating what we’ve heard from Nintendo representatives before.

Our Verdict

Elijah Holt
Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
