Mario has always been a favorite, but now instead of Mario going on the mobile platform, Animal Crossing will feature there. Mario has been around for a pretty long time and has gone really far with its fan base. Animal Crossing is a recent game made by Nintendo. So why did Nintendo chose Animal Crossing over Mario? There are a couple of reasons from Tech News Today explaining why they think such a recent product by Nintendo is preferable to Mario.

1. To attract female gamers.

One of the reasons,Tech News today believes, is that Nintendo wants to attract female gamers. Mario is a fan favorite all across the world, but Animal Crossing will be a new thing in the industry of mobile.

It targets audiences with any gender. Tech News Today did a Q&A segment with Nintendo and they said that they want their games to be unique. Anyone can play their games

2. To add Diverse games to the community.
