Dragalia Lost, a mobile game which Nintendo revealed after one of its investor meetings a couple of months ago this year, has surpassed 300,000 pre-registrations. As a celebratory reward, each player will receive 900 Dragon Crystals when the game is launched. The game is set to launch this summer, starting off with East Asia, first in Japan and then in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. However, it won’t be long after when it will arrive in North America and Europe.

The story is set in the kingdom of Alberia where royal members can use the dragons’ powers by creating a pact with them. When the Holy Shard loses its power, it’s up to the Seventh Prince to save his people. But, the prince didn’t make a pact with a dragon, and so has to go on the Dragon Selection Trail. Along the way, he will meet allies, monsters, and a mysterious masked girl. Main characters are the prince, his sister Zecia, and a fairy called Nahm, but through the gameplay, there will be over 50 other characters you will meet.

This free-to-play RPG is the first original game created by Nintendo for iOS and Android mobile devices and through their partnership with Cygames. It is a part of the new Nintendo’s president Shuntaro Furukawa’s strategy to fix the mobile development in the company.

Since his new appointment was announced a couple of months ago, he was presented in the media as a person who knows the mobile and gaming industry well and wants to take Nintendo further. And since June 28, when he took over the office, he seems good on his promise by launching the amazingly looking Dragalia Lost game.

Nintendo has already started introducing the characters of the Dragalia Lost, like dragons and knights, while there are more yet to come before the launch. The material looks promising, as do the plans Nintendo has for the upcoming period. Some of the games we are looking forward to are Mario Tennis Aces and Splatoon 2, among other titles. However, the most interesting thing is certainly the Nintendo Switch Online which is slated for September 2018.

As you can see, big plans lie ahead for Nintendo and their new president which will certainly bring a whole new gaming dimension for the players.
