Nintendo Switch Hit Legend of Zelda Coming to Smartphones

Zelda is reportedly next to break out of the Nintendo platform.

Based on the sales numbers every Nintendo Switch owner also owns Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Globally, Nintendo sold 2.76 million copies of Zelda for the Switch. Nintendo is according to a WSJ report planning to release a Zelda game for smartphones.

Nintendo began to embrace mobile phones as a platform for its popular video game franchises in 2016. Besides the popular Super Mario Run, Nintendo released Miitomo and Fire Emblem Heroes on iPhone and Android devices.

Beside a mobile Zelda, Nintendo also brings Animal Crossing in 2017, according to the sources of The Wall Street Journal. Nintendo is moving rather slow on the mobile phone platform. Last year the company made about $176 million in revenues from mobile game sales. There is a lot of room for growth.

Nintendo will design the new Zelda mobile game to be a neat game to have for Zelda fans and to introduce Zelda to new gamers. The company managed to do that with Super Mario Run quite well.

The report also mentions that Pokémon Co. is planning a new Pokemon card-game app.

The Japanese video game maker is back on track with the Nintendo Switch console. Nintendo launched the new console on March 3. Six weeks into the launch the Nintendo Switch continues to be a hard to find item. Only option to buy a Nintendo Switch online today is through one of the three Nintendo Switch bundles GameStop is offering.
