Nintendo’s beloved Zelda series is headed to smartphones, states The Wall Street Journal in an unconfirmed report.

It’s somewhat unclear if this is a port or an entirely new game like Super Mario Run. If true, that seems most likely.

According to The Wall Street Journal, sources say this is Nintendo’s latest effort to expand its mobile line-up. The Zelda smartphone app would apparently follow Animal Crossing, which WSJ reports is likely to be out in the second half of 2017. Sources say that the Zelda app’s release date, WSJ adds, could change.

Both Nintendo and mobile company DeNA declined to comment to The Wall Street Journal. Kotaku reached out prior to publication to Nintendo, but has yet to hear back.

The Wall Street Journal also added that The Pokémon Company is apparently planning a new card-game app. The company, however, also declined to comment. Kotaku also reached out for comment regarding this, but has yet to hear back.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.
