Smartphone game Dragalia Lost is scheduled for a release in the UK, Canada, and Australia, Nintendo has confirmed.

Dragalia Lost initially launched on 27th September 2018, but was restricted to just the US, Japan, Macau, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Fans from other regions have been hoping for a release for some time, so we're glad to see that it's finally about to reach more players, although no specific release date has been set just yet. The news was revealed by Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa today, who mentioned that the game will release in "English-speaking countries such as" those mentioned above.

It certainly makes sense for Nintendo and its development partner Cygames to launch the game in more territories; player spending was revealed to have surpassed $50 million by December of last year. If you live in one of the countries mentioned above and are wondering what it's all about, we'd encourage you to read our full review; we described it as a "remarkably well-executed ARPG for mobile devices", saying that its "surprisingly in-depth lore, easy to pick up gameplay and oodles of customisation options make this a game that’s easy to sink hours into".

Nintendo also shared the news of an upcoming mobile game called Dr. Mario World, as well as a delay for Mario Kart Tour.
