Nintendo To Release The Legend Of Zelda For Smartphones
The Legend Of Zelda For Smartphones
Do not expect a release date soon. “People familiar with the issue said Animal Crossing’s smart phone application will likely be released in the second half of 2017, and The Legend of Zelda would follow it, although they warned that the moment and order “Nintendo and DeNA representatives have refused to comment,” writes the Wall Street Journal.
Given the performance of Zelda Legend: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch, it is not surprising that Nintendo wants to capitalize on the return of the series. Animal Crossing and The Legend of Zelda would follow Miitomo, Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes – three titles that the Kyoto-based company has already released on Android and iOS.
How much Nintendo costs for The Legend of Zelda on Android and iOS is not yet known. Considering that Super Mario Run was a punctual purchase, others like Fire Emblem Heroes were free to play with microtransactions.
And while the last entry in the series The Legend of Zelda opened an open approach to survival to the traditional set of linear dungeons, the way Nintendo fits in its mobile debut remains to be seen. It is safe to say that you will not see a direct port of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for smartphones.
