Nintendo has announced that Dragalia Lost, their collaboration with GranBlue Fantasy developer CyGames, will be getting its own Direct tonight. The Direct airs at 8:30 p.m. PT/11:30 p.m. ET today and is likely to give us the best look we’ve had at the game so far.
Additionally, Nintendo revealed that Dragalia Lost would be releasing on September 27, so not very far from now. You can check out footage in the tweet below.

The title was announced earlier this year as former CEO Tatsumi Kimishima retired and current CEO Shuntaro Furukawa was announced to be taking the reigns. The implication was that Furukawa spearheaded the deal with the major mobile game developer, but neither Nintendo nor CyGames have talked openly about the details. Nintendo also became a minority stakeholder in the company at the same time.
CyGames’ GranBlue Fantasy makes makes hundreds of millions of dollars a year in Japan. The developer is also working on a GranBlue action RPG with PlatinumGames and an untitled game tentatively called Project Awakening. They recently confirmed that the PlatinumGames title would be coming to the west as they work out details for how to do so.
