A new adventure awaits?

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Nintendo is currently developing a smartphone title based on the Legend of Zelda series.

The game is likely to follow Animal Crossing, another evergreen Nintendo franchise which has already been confirmed for smartphones. Nintendo has already published Miitomo, Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes on iOS and Android.

At a recent investor's Q&A Nintendo boss Tatsumi Kimishima reconfirmed the company's commitment to creating mobile titles, and said that it intends to release two to three new smartphone games before the end of the financial year - March 2018, basically.

What do you think a smartphone Zelda could be like? Do you think that Nintendo will make it a one-time purchase like Super Mario Run, or introduce microtransactions, like Fire Emblem Heroes? As ever, we'd like to know what you think so post a comment.
