According to the Wall Street Journal, the company aims to be launching a 'Legend of Zelda' game for mobile device users as well as claiming The Pokemon Company is also planning another card-based title for mobiles.

This news follows the announcement of the 'Animal Crossing' mobile game which is scheduled to be released in the second half of this year.

However, sources told the publication nothing is locked down as of yet in terms of timing although Nintendo has said the 'Animal Crossing' mobile title will be released sometime before April 2018.

DeNA, Nintendo's mobile game partner, is working on the mobile 'Zelda' game but there is no word of what kind of game it will be or what cost it will be price at.

Despite years of Nintendo saying it wouldn't bring its franchises to mobile devices it seems they have now changed their mind.

The company has now released 'Miitomo', 'Fire Emblem Heroes' and 'Super Mario Run' - a free game but costs $10 to unlock all the stages.

However, Wall Street Journal report mobile versions of Nintendo's games haven't been the biggest commercial hit bringing in less than $176.4 million.

The 'Zelda' franchise is one of the biggest and well known the company has and another of its major titles 'Pokemon' has announced it's in the process of creating a card game for mobile devices.

Nintendo own 32 per cent of The Pokemon Company and the new card game follows the commercially successful 'Pokemon Go' game.
