After having forayed into the smartphone games arena with its incredibly successful 'Miitomo' mobile game, Nintendo is now set to expand its dominance on the smartphone market by expanding its smartphone game lineup by launching two of its popular game franchises for mobile devices later this year.

In a last-week announcement at a special Q&A session following the company's earnings report for the latest quarter, Nintendo said that two of its widely-liked franchises scheduled to come to smartphones this year are 'Animal Crossing' and 'Fire Emblem.'

Announcing the imminent availability of 'Animal Crossing' and 'Fire Emblem' games for mobile devices, Nintendo's current president Tatsumi Kimishima said that the two titles have been selected by the company to follow 'Miitomo.'

About the selection of 'Animal Crossing' and 'Fire Emblem' games for strengthening Nintendo's toehold in the samrtphone gaming market, Kimishima said that the decision has been made "from the viewpoint of increasing the diverse types of consumers interested in Nintendo, and widening opportunities for gameplay."

Drawing attention to the fact that a wide range of gamers - including children and women - have been playing the 'Animal Crossing' series and that 'Fire Emblem' series has attracted die-hard Nintendo fans for a long time, Kimishima said: "We selected two titles of different categories and IP to reach as many consumers as possible."
