Nintendo’s Dragalia Lost launches after racking up over one million pre-registrations

Nintendo has launched its latest mobile game Dragalia Lost after racking up one million pre-registrations ahead of its release.

Nintendo closed the campaign on September 25th, ahead of service beginning for the title in the US, Japan, Hong Kong and Macau.

To celebrate the milestone and launch, Nintendo will hand out 2,500 wyrmite-worth of in-game currency to anyone who signs into Dragalia Lost having pre-registered.

Developed by Cygames, the RPG is set in a fantasy universe filled with warriors, magic and dragons.

Alongside a storied campaign, players can team up with three others online and dive into co-op quests, events and raid battles.

Mother of all dragons

Upon launch, there have been a few issues regarding performance on iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs, with instances of the screen not responding when running the app.

Nintendo acknowledged the issue on the games official website and said it planned to address the issue in future updates. It also advised that restarting the app may alleviate the problem.

Dragalia Lost was initially announced during Nintendo’s financial presentation for the fiscal year ending March 31st 2018, alongside a new partnership with games developer Cygames.

The agreement saw Nintendo take a five per cent stake in subsidiary Cygames for an undisclosed sum.

While Nintendo has had mixed success on mobile to date, it will be hoping that Dragalia Lost can capture a similar audience to that of Fire Emblem Heroes, which is estimated to have generated more than $400 million in worldwide revenue as of August 2018.
