Legend of Zelda to hit phones, says reportIt might take a while, but Nintendo could be cooking up a new adventure for Link for your mobile device.
The Legend of Zelda could be headed to phones. Nintendo has been chugging away the hardware market for years, even when some people think that they should go the way of SEGA. A new report from the Wall Street Journal says : "Nintendo is readying the Legend of Zelda for its phone debut". The report says "Nintendo is working with mobile developer DNA to build this version of Zelda" This is in line with previous statements by Nintendo's president, who says the two companies would work together on mobile titles. Nintendo has gone on record saying it would launch five mobile games by March 2017. Only three have been released within that timetable, with four titles disclosed. Zelda could be that fifth one. So when would you see a Zelda game hit your phone? The journal says, expect Animal Crossing to be released first. That game would likely be released in the second half of 2017. Legend of Zelda would come after Animal Crossing. However, the journal sources said the timing could be changed. Super Mario Run turned a lot of heads when it was first announced. The game is free to download with several levels available. The full game could be unlocked for a one-time $10 charge. Reports say that as of January 2017, about 3% of Super Mario run user's paid ten dollars to get full access to the game. A legend of Zelda mobile game could be really big for Nintendo if it's handled right. For more information, check out cnet.com, I'm [UNKNOWN] I'll see you online.
