There’s been so much hype about the Nintendo Switch, Breath of the Wild, and up and coming games. Switch aside, Nintendo has been working on other projects. Specifically, on-the-go games for our cell phones. And there’s a lot now: Miitomo, Fire Emblem Heroes, Super Mario Run, Pokemon Duel… They’re talking about an Animal Crossing game and now, they’re talking a Legend of Zelda app.
I personally play Fire Emblem Heroes all the time. With Fire Emblem being one of my favorite franchises, being able to play a quick round of the game during the slower times of my day. A Legend of Zelda mobile game sounds intriguing, but I am curious as to how the app will run. Zelda games can be rather epic, so who knows how much data or how story-heavy the mobile game will be. Rachel, I’m sure you’re excited for Animal Crossing later this year, right?
I too am intrigued by the Zelda app. I’m curious to see what they’ll do with it. I am excited for the Animal Crossing, but again, I’m curious about how they’ll go about it. I never imagined big Nintendo games would ever be on mobile. I have a few of the games downloaded on my iPad, but I haven’t been playing them as much as I would like to. Now that these other games are coming out, I want to give them a good try.
Honestly, I was thinking of investing in an iPad if only for the mobile games. I like the idea of having Nintendo games with me wherever I go, but I don’t want my phone to carry the brunt of them, both for our data’s and the battery’s sake. To me, I think Animal Crossing may be more mobile ready, if you will, with the real-time aspect and the casual atmosphere. Zelda is more of an adventure franchise, so I’m not sure how they’ll pull that off. Unless they do something similar to Super Mario Run and focus on one of Link’s skills, like a target game with his bow and arrows.
I think you should get an iPad anyway… It helps a lot with work like blogging. Still, I know what you mean. I don’t download any games on my phone due to the battery and data. Animal Crossing will most likely work well on the mobile, but Zelda, like you said, may be hard. They already have Link’s Crossbow Training for the Wii, though.
I know they have the Crossbow Training, but a tapping game to take out enemies and targets for a high score, perhaps against others on a leader board, would be a simple premise for a Zelda mobile game. Considering how large the fanbase is for the Zelda games, it may do well just for having Link’s and Zelda’s faces on the game.
That wouldn’t be a bad idea. It would definitely be a nice starting point for people who don’t typically play Zelda or people who just want to give it a try. Still, I’m looking forward to it coming out. I can’t wait to give it a try.
