Although the bad news is that a release date for the game hasn't been set, with the wording suggesting launch could come at any time between March 2018 and March 2019.
That announcement comes after Nintendo released four games for mobile last year: Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Fire Emblem Heroes, Super Mario Run, and Miitomo.
The Wall Street Journal previously reported that Nintendo was looking to increase its involved in mobile gaming, so hopefully see should see more of its main titles coming to our phones.
