Nintendo’s foray into the mobile world has proven fruitful thus far. Spearheaded by the insane success of Pokémon Go (despite having nothing to do with it) Nintendo has released a solid line up of titles to keep the ball rolling. Miitomo and Fire Emblem Heroes both proved popular enough and Super Mario Run was a big hit. Nintendo doesn’t look to be slowing down either as Animal Crossing is just over the horizon as well.
It shouldn’t be a surprise then that Nintendo is looking to bring one of its other biggest franchises over to Androids and iPhones everywhere. According to a report, The Legend of Zelda will be heading to mobile devices soon.
My question is what kind of game do we as fans want this to be? With the 3DS (seemingly) coming to the end of its life cycle, there’s no place left for traditional handheld Zelda games to go. Do we want to see a game like that on mobile? With today’s technology, it’s certainly possible. Do we want to see a fun spin off, kinda like Fire Emblem Heroes, which kept the core gameplay but loaded it with fan service? Do we want to see a Mario Maker type game where you can create, share, and explore dungeons? Or do we want something else entirely?
Let’s hash it out in the comments below!
