Whereas trademark filings aren’t laborious proof of an impending cell launch, they had been filed beneath the class of “program for dwelling online game machine, downloadable online game program, and program for smartphones”, which bodes properly.
We now have seen some console video games in recent times launch with companion apps for cell, so it could be a case of 1, or each, of those titles touchdown ultimately on the Nintendo Swap or 3DS programs and receiving such an app.
Actually, it may lead to any mixture of releases on Nintendo’s present programs, because the class through which it’s filed beneath is broad sufficient to keep away from specifics, however right here’s to hoping we’ll get some more mobile action from Nintendo.
Spirit Tracks was a Legend of Zelda title that launched on the Nintendo DS and closely relied on using its stylus as an enter gadget – re-arranging puzzles, wielding particular weapons, and so forth – all of which might be mechanics that translate properly to the touchscreen interface of a smartphone.
