Nintendo to launch new action RPG smartphone game later this year
After the success of Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem: Heroes and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Nintendo revealed its new mobile game to be released later this year – Dragalia Lost. Unlike Nintendo's previous mobile games that belong to iconic franchises, the upcoming title is a new IP.

Dragalia Lost is an action RPG developed by Nintendo and Cygames. The game will be initially released in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau sometime this summer. According to Nintendo, the game will make it to North America and Europe later this year.

Along with the game's announcement, Nintendo released a trailer that shows some of the Dragalia Lost's gameplay features. However, since this is a completely new, original IP it might not become as popular as Nintendo's other mobile titles.

The good news is the announcement shows Nintendo is willing to expand on new IPs rather than bring existing ones to the mobile ecosystem. Last but not least, it's worth mentioning that Dragalia Lost will be available on Android and iPhone, but Nintendo hasn't said anything about the game's price.

Looks interesting. At least until we find out whether or not it’s going to go with endless money-pitfalls of in-app purchases. If they make the game paid or cap the amount of money you can spend on the micro-transactions, then the game mechanics would be fun, balanced and fair.
