[RUMOR] Nintendo Developing ‘The Legend of Zelda’ Smartphone Game

Post by Gameguy1996 on Mon May 15, 2017 12:26 am

According to Takashi Mochizuki of the Wall Street Journal Nintendo's next mobile game will be The Legend of Zelda.

Wall Street Journal wrote:TOKYO— Nintendo Co. NTDOY -0.05% plans to offer its game “The Legend of Zelda” for smartphones, people familiar with the matter said, the latest step by the Kyoto company to expand its mobile-games lineup.

Nintendo has been building its mobile presence over the past year after years of focusing on games for its own hardware. It has already released “Miitomo,” “Fire Emblem Heroes” and “Super Mario Run” for smartphones and has announced plans for a mobile version of “Animal Crossing.”

The people familiar with the matter said the “Animal Crossing” smartphone app is likely to be released in the latter half of 2017, and “The Legend of Zelda” would follow that, although they cautioned that the timing and order of the releases could be changed. Nintendo is developing the games with Tokyo-based DeNA Co.


I was kind of expecting Kirby or Pikmin next. Zelda does make sense though with how popular the series is now and I'm guessing it will be some kind of puzzle game.

As long as it doesn't try to force some complex touch control into it it should be okay.
Good thinking re puzzles - dungeons and items perhaps?

I want to say this would just be a new top down Zelda game with touch controls similar to the DS games, I feel like some of these mobile releases have been staying pretty true to their game series and just making them feel really natural on mobile devices. (although I can't at all see how that's going to be done with Animal Crossing so who knows) I could also see it just being more of a dungeon crawler like @The Shattered Legacy said.
