The Legend of Zelda on mobile?

According to “people familiar with the matter”, quoted by the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo is seemingly working on a Legend of Zelda game for smart devices, that would be released after the already-announced Animal Crossing game.

According to those same sources, that Animal Crossing game would be released in the latter half of 2017, though it’s possible that the timing and order of the releases could be changed (like it was for Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes, following the success of Pokémon GO).

Nintendo did mention in the past there was no IP they wouldn’t use for their smart devices, and since The Legend of Zelda is one of the most popular ones, it makes perfect sense that it would be chosen for one of the upcoming mobile games.

Thanks Armadilo for the heads up!

Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer

A few days ago, Reggie Fils-Aimé revealed that the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System had sold over 2.3 million units worldwide. But what about the Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer? According to the annual report from Media Create, the console sold 580 847 units as of January 1st, 2017.

This shows that Japan certainly wasn’t spared by shortages, as almost half of 2017 sales come from the first week (261 381 units).
