Nintendo’s next smartphone release is an original RPG called Dragalia Lost. It’s quite a welcome curveball, certainly when you consider the previous games in their ongoing mobile effort are bite-sized, sometimes unremarkable versions of key franchises: Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem Heroes, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
Dragalia Lost – From Cygames
So, Dragalia Lost. It’s being co-developed with Japanese developer Cygames (they did Battle Champs) and is out this summer:
Next to nothing else is known about the title at the moment, including what revenue model it will employ. At this point, and in this writer’s opinion, it’d be nice to have a one-off paid release for a change (like Super Mario Run did), skipping the free-to-play approach altogether.
Unless, of course, said free-to-play model is done right. That’ll work too.
