Nintendo has finally revealed the first information about its first new IP designed specifically for mobile devices. Dragalia is a co-op action-RPG that will be released on September 27th for iOS and Android devices. It features online cooperative gaming with parties of four and includes story quests, events, raids and much more.
In the single player campaign in Dragalia Lost, players can"build a customized party of adventurers and lead them to "a variety of locales to save the Kingdom of Alberia from mysterious evil forces". Players maintain full control of the party and can customize each member through new equipment and leveling to add new abilities to their arsenals.
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.
"Synchronous online multiplayer" allows friends to play through all of the game's content as well.
