We all know that free Android games aren't always free these days, but many of them are very close if you have a little patience. Currently, there are four Animal Crossing games released on Nintendo's gaming machines (Nintendo 64, Nintendo DS, Wii, and Nintendo 3DS). The last mainline title in the series, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, released in 2012, and fans have been impatiently waiting for an announcement of a new game for a while now.

This will be the first time we'll see what form Animal Crossing will take as a smartphone game.
