Love it or hate it, it seems Nintendo is going to continue releasing games on their mobile platform.
Following the mixed results of their previous mobile releases: Miitomo, Fire Emblem Heroes, Super Mario Run and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Nintendo is set to release a new mobile game.
Dragalia Lost is being co-developed with Cygames, who are also working with Platinum Games, the developers behind the Bayonetta series.
The one advantage all the previous titles had was that they all came from big name titles. Dragalia Lost will be a brand new IP from Nintendo. So it will be interesting to see how well the title stands on its own on a mobile platform.
There is currently a website and trailer up for Dragalia Lost and while they are both currently only in Japanese, there are a few things that are quickly recognizable.
Dragalia Lost will have a bright and bold anime art style, monsters to fight and a beautiful world to explore. Oh and you can turn into a dragon. The game will be free to download with in game purchases according to the website.
The announcement of Dragalia Lost comes after sources claimed Nintendo is looking to work with more mobile game developers to release even more mobile games. So fans can expect to see future mobile releases from Nintendo, including The Legend of Zelda and Mario Kart Spin-offs. (Mario Kart Tour is set to release by March 2019)
Pre-registration is currently open on iOS and Android for Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau and be released this summer. Westeners can expect the game sometime later this year.
