Unlike other prominent collectible card games in the genre, which are played in turns, Titanfall: Frontline is played in real-time. The player collects and places Pilot, Titan, and burn cards to damage and defeat their opponent. Pilot and Titan cards can combine to perform extra damage. [1]

The game is free-to-play, and players can choose to purchase in-game content. [1]


In October 2015, Respawn Entertainment, creators of the Titanfall franchise, began a long-term partnership with Nexon, a company known for its free-to-play online games. The partnership was set to include Respawn sister studio and mobile game developer Particle City, which was co-founded by Respawn's Vince Zampella. Respawn owns a significant portion of Particle City, and Nexon invested in both Los Angeles-based companies as part of the deal. Several new franchise games are planned in the partnership, but none were expected to replicate the original's first-person shooter on a mobile device. [2] Particle City led development on the title, and Nexon served as its publisher. [3] It soft launched on Android in mid-September 2016 [4] and on iOS in the Philippines later that month. [5] Titanfall: Frontline was planned for a full release in 2016 on Android and iOS devices [1] but was cancelled on January 13, 2017. [6]

Nintendo, a Japanese home and handheld video game console manufacturer and game developer, has traditionally focused on games that utilize unique elements of its consoles. However, the growth of the mobile gaming market in the early 2010s led to several successive fiscal quarters where they were running at a loss. Nintendo, led by president Satoru Iwata at the time, developed a strategy for entering into the mobile games market with development partner DeNA, as a means of introducing their franchise properties to mobile players with a goal of bringing them to buy Nintendo's consoles later. Since 2015, Nintendo has internally developed a number of mobile games, while also publishing games with other developers, including games outside of the initial DeNA partnership. Several of them have been entered the top-downloaded games list on the iOS App Store and Google Play stores, earning over US$100 million in revenue in total.
