Not much has been revealed besides the name and release window, but this game is speculated to be the fifth and final game under the initial partnership between Nintendo and DeNA. This announcement comes days after the announcement that the first mobile app created under this deal, Miitomo, will be shutting down its servers in May of this year.
We’re hoping to learn more about this mobile app later this year, but all of the other Nintendo mobile apps have been true to their core gameplay in some form. Stay tuned to Gaming Trend as more information is released.
