Following its successful launch of its first mobile app/game, Nintendo will bring two popular franchises to smart devices. The next free-to-play mobile games will be from the "Animal Crossing" and "Fire Emblem" franchises, reports Den of Geek.

Like with "Miitomo," both mobile games will feature in-app purchases and will be available for both Android and iOS. The website states that in the case of "Fire Emblem" gamers should expect a "more accessible" version of the 3DS series.

As for "Animal Crossing," the mobile game will be "connected to the world of 'Animal Crossing' for dedicated gaming systems" meaning the title will more than likely be a kind of series spin-off like "Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer."

According to Nintendo Life, Nintendo of Europe has now fully verified the news and gave a release window. The company said:

"Nintendo's Next Mobile Apps: Building on the positive consumer reaction to Miitomo, Nintendo announced that its next two mobile apps would be based on the familiar and beloved Fire Emblem and Animal Crossingfranchises. Nintendo plans to release both of these applications this autumn. As for the former app, while making it more accessible in comparison to the Fire Emblemgames for Nintendo's dedicated gaming systems, Nintendo aims to offer the great value of a role-playing strategy game. Nintendo will design the latter game so that it will be connected with the world of Animal Crossing for dedicated gaming systems. By playing both Animal Crossinggames, users will find increased enjoyment. Both of these are pure game applications. Compared toMiitomo, they have more prominent game elements, and the game content will tie closely into Nintendo's dedicated games business. Nintendo will provide more details about these applications closer to their launch period, and aims to have multiple types of apps that appeal to different audiences and different groups of players."

Both titles are set for a fall release so we'll bring you more information as it becomes available.
