The Free-to-Start Action RPG Launches for Smart Devices on Sept. 27

For the first time ever, Nintendo is introducing a new IP directly on
smart devices! With the Dragalia
Lost
game, players can enjoy a fast-paced action role-playing
game set in a fantasy world of warriors, magic and dragons that's
specifically designed to play on smartphones, but with the depth
typically reserved for dedicated video game systems. With intuitive
touch-screen controls, colorful fantasy graphics that pop off the screen
and the option to join up online with up to three other players in co-op
story quests, events and Raid Battles, the game can easily be enjoyed in
short bursts or longer play sessions.

"Our mobile strategy is expanding with the launch of Dragalia Lost,
the first original IP from Nintendo to launch on mobile devices," said
Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America's Senior Vice President of Sales and
Marketing. "Fans are looking for a variety of experiences on mobile
devices, and this vibrant action role-playing game perfectly complements
our other mobile games, while also offering something completely new."

In Dragalia Lost, players build a customized party of adventurers
and set off on a grand journey – one that will take them to a variety of
locales to save the Kingdom of Alberia from mysterious evil forces that
are corrupting the realm. While exploring the world, players control
their party of adventurers in battle, even transforming into mighty
dragons to unleash devastating attacks. Along the way, players can
discover more than 60 companions for their party that offer a variety of
different weapon classes, combat abilities and elemental properties.

Battles are performed in real time to keep players in the action,
dragging their fingers on the screen to move their characters, tapping
or holding to engage with various attacks and flicking along the screen
to dodge. It's all very intuitive and easy to pick up for any type of
player. And by using the in-game currency Diamantium or Wyrmite, players
can summon new characters, dragons or special accessories called
Wyrmprints that can be equipped for powerful abilities or bonuses.
Wyrmite is earned in the game as a reward for completing quests, while
Diamantium can be purchased using real-world money.

Dragalia Lost is all about letting players play how they want.
Party members can be customized in all sorts of ways, whether it's
through new equipment or leveling up and earning new or upgraded
abilities. Dragalia Lost even offers synchronous online
multiplayer with up to three other people who have the game, so friends
can share the experience throughout the game's main story adventure,
additional quests and event raids.
