There was another Nintendo Direct Presentation over the weekend, and you know what that means don’t you? Yep! More awesome news from an even awesome-er video game company! With the release of Splatoon this weekend, love for Nintendo is at an all-time high, so the latest presentation came at a perfect time. Out of everything shown through the video event, one of the more exciting items on the list was that of the first promotional trailer for the upcoming Pokemon spin-off title Super Mystery Dungeon for the 3DS which was only announced about a week or so ago. Nintendo work fast, baby!
The new video only goes for a short minute but that’s fine because it tells us everything we need to know about the new game at this point in time, and what’s that exactly, Frank? Well, the video revealed that every Pokemon will be fightable or recruitable in this new title…yeah…literally every single Pokemon. At the beginning of the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games, much like in the mainstream titles, you’re asked to pick a starter Pokemon to begin your journey as. Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon allows you to choose from any of the starters spanning across all generations including Pokemon X and Pokemon Y’s Froakie, Chespin, and Fennekin. Not exactly starter Pokemon but still featured int he initial lineup or Riolu and franchise mascot Pikachu.
The promotional video also reveals that the new game is set to be released in Japan on the 19th of September this year and will be sold for 4,700 yen which equates to about US$39. As for us in the West; Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon will be released across North America in the Winter and across Europe in the Spring.
