Was hoping they would. Too many Zelda clones showing up in the top results for "Zelda" on the app store. Wonder how it'll play out...don't think their Super Mario Run experiment worked despite being one of the better mobile games out there.

If Mario Run and FE Heroes are any indication it'll probably just be a lite version of the series based on a handheld game like TFH, PH, or ST. Or maybe an app of some sort that works with BOTW (Sheikah Slate app?).

Please just please also release it on 3DS or Switch.

I am so tired of them making games on mobile and not releasing them on their own damn systems. I want to play these games. Please let me. I can't afford a mobile device and don't want to support mobile due to them constantly being outdated by newer systems so please Nintendo release your mobile games on your actual systems.

If its like a real good Zelda game that I can't play I'll be pissed.

I could see this being a $10-$15 pay once title.

I don't know how you make the regular Zelda formula free-to-play?

I mean Mario Run has a scoring system and daily runs but I can't see there being a scoring system for Zelda dungeons.

Also while you could play platforming levels multiple times quickly going through a dungeons with the exact same puzzle solutions would be tedious.

I could see this have a basic overworld with four dungeons located around it.
