Nintendo's next iPhone game, Dragalia Lost, coming Sept. 27
Nintendo's next smartphone game, "Dragalia Lost," will launch in the U.S., Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau on Sept. 27, the company has announced.
Little is known about the title so far, other than it being a fantasy action role-playing game with anime trappings. It's being co-developed by Cygames, a Japanese mobile developer of the city-building strategy game Battle Champs and the turn-based card game Shadowverse CCG.
Nintendo has released only a handful of smartphone games so far, mostly done in partnership with DeNA. These include titles like "Super Mario Run," "Fire Emblem Heroes,", and "Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp." One of the more anticipated offerings is "Mario Kart Tour," coming next year.
The company has been eager to seize on the revenues generated by smartphone games, which are especially popular in Japan, but has also been treading carefully so as not to cannibalize hardware sales. Its flagship console, the Switch, is designed to be used as both a handheld and a plugged-in game system.
