Nintendo has announced that a new Pokémon game is on its way. Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon is set for release at the end of 2015. The game will be available for the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS.
Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon is the latest game in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series. This series has been around since 2005.
The Mystery Dungeon series is a spinoff of the main Pokémon games. Nintendo says the series has sold more 13 million copies. In the game, the player takes the role of a human who has been transformed into a Pokémon. The player takes a personality test at the beginning of the game. The results of that test determine which Pokémon the player will be. Then the player teams up with another Pokémon. Together they fight their way through various dungeons (or levels). This involves battling other Pokémon. Throughout the game, the player can recruit more Pokémon to be on his or her team.
The combat gameplay is the same as the other Pokémon games. Players take turns attacking each other. The dungeons in Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon are all randomly generated. This means they will be different every time the player enters them. This adds an element of surprise to the game that keeps things feeling fresh and new for a longer time.
According to a press release from Nintendo, “Players can look forward to even greater, randomly created dungeons that change each time they enter. In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, players will battle alongside Legendary and Mythical Pokémon to save the world in a sweeping tale of adventure and mystery.”
The entire Pokémon franchise has sold more than 250 million copies. The games are immensely popular with kids. The last Pokémon game released was Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. It came out at the end of 2014.
