What kind of mobile Hyrulian adventure might you be able to embark on?

The Legend of Zelda, as well as the Pokemon Card game, may be coming to your smart device of choice later this year.

A report by the Wall Street Journal late this evening indicated that following the eventual release of the mobile Animal Crossing game, which is still due out later this year, a Zelda game will follow it. No other information about the game was announced other than it will be developed with DeNA. Neither Nintendo or DeNA commented on the report.

A new mobile Pokemon Trading Card game was also mentioned in the Wall Street Journal article, with no further details. There is already a version of the trading card game on smart devices based on the PC version.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't The Wall Street Journal the same source that claimed a Zelda Netflix series was in the works?

They did do that report, yes. They also did a bunch of others, as newspapers do ("Industry-leading chips"). It's up to us to interpret them properly.

A Zelda mobage is curious. It could be an unrelated, free-to-start thing. Or maybe something along the lines of Phantom Hourglass.

The Pokemon card mobile game has me instantly pining for a new Pokemon TCG: The Video game even though I know how terrible it can be in it's monetization.

Enter Dungeon: Wait 3 hours until gizmos replenish or pay 99 cents to enter now.

If this proves true I expect it to be along the lines of Tri Force Heroes.

Seems like a bad idea. Hope it isn't true but we'll see
