p Nintendo is continuing its push into smartphone gaming with another classic franchise: The Legend of Zelda.
The game, which is yet to be officially announced by Nintendo, will be released following a mobile version of Animal Crossing, which was delayed from a planned March 2017 launch until "the next fiscal year."
Citing insider sources, the Wall Street Journal claimed Animal Crossing will launch in the "latter half" of 2017, with Zelda likely to follow in 2018.
Earlier this year, Nintendo CEO Tatsumi Kimishima noted in an earnings call that the company planned to release up to three new mobile games by March 2018.
So far, only Animal Crossing has been made official.
Since the launch of its first mobile game Miitomo in March 2016, which became a surprise hit before quickly fading from the App Store chart, Nintendo has found greater success with Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes.
