Just in time for you to get completely tired of playing Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Nintendo is set to release mobile RPG Dragalia Lost next month. Expect to learn more in a Nintendo Direct tonight before being tempted to buy many Dragon Crystals next month!
Nintendo announced its next mobile game back in April. It's a role-play called Dragalia Lost, developed by Cygames, best known for another mobile game called Granblue Fantasy. Now we know when Nintendo is going to let us play it.
Yesterday announced the Nintendo of America Twitter account that Dragalia Lost will be available to play in the United States on September 29th. Tonight at 8:30 PT, there will be a Nintendo Direct that provides full information on what to expect from the mobile game.
We have included the live stream below:
Unlike games released on Switch and 3DS Nintendo's goal here is not to earn money that actually sells your games or the hardware to play them on. Instead, it is about microtransactions. Love them or hate them, they work clearly otherwise Nintendo would not continue to release games that are free to play on the phone or tablet.
Dragalia Lost is no exception to the free game model. The game will be free to download and play, but depends on an in-game currency called Dragon Crystals. It should be possible to play without spending any money, but under no illusion that temptation will always be available to buy dragon crystals in order to develop or at least develop much faster.
The launch of Dragalia Lost will be welcome to some players, not because they intend to play the mobile RPG, but because it means Nintendo can focus on the next mobile game edition. That game is expected to be Mario Kart Tour, which of course will be "free to start."
