The Legend of Zelda is the next Nintendo mobile game following Animal Crossing, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal citing unnamed sources. The same report says that Animal Crossing will be going mobile in the latter half of 2017, so we can likely expect Zelda sometime in early 2018 if all goes smoothly.
There's no word on what kind of game the mobile Zelda will be, or whether it will be free-to-play or paid like Super Mario Run. Regardless, a mobile Legend of Zelda title seems like a natural choice following in the overwhelming success of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Nintendo's first year in mobile gaming has certainly been successful, especially with the continued success of Fire Emblem Heroes, which brings the franchise's classic strategic combat into a compact, free-to-play form.
In other Nintendo mobile news, the company also has a new mobile version of the Pokémon Trading Card Game in the works. If true, this is an interesting move considering Pokémon TCG Online is already successful, especially within the competitive sphere.
