Pokémon Mystery Dungeon coming to a 3DS system near you


Looks like Pokémon will be making it’s first leap into the 3D gamespace with the Mystery Dungeon series. To be released on March 24th, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity will let the player take control of one of five hot shot Pokémon adventurers;  Pikachu, Snivy, Oshawott, Tepig or Axew. There will be over 20 randomly generated dungeons and being a 3DS game, you can explore them in glorious 3D. The new hotness in this release will be the Magnagates. I’m not exactly sure how this will work but they say that you take a picture of round objects in the real world which somehow extend the adventure. Also a first for the series will be wireless multiplayer but we’ll get more information on these new features the closer we get to the 24th of March. For me, it’s a toss up between Pikachu and Smugleaf….er I mean Snivy.


Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity to Release on March 24 for Nintendo 3DS

On March 24, the popular Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series will make its debut on the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system with Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. With vibrantly detailed 3D graphics and more than 20 Mystery Dungeons that change every time they are entered, nearly limitless adventure awaits players and their Pokémon friends in this new game.

Become one of five popular Pokémon from the fan-favorite franchise – Pikachu, Snivy, Oshawott, Tepig or Axew – and journey through infinite dungeons, battle and befriend other Pokémon, collect treasures and explore the game’s vast, beautiful world – all in amazing 3D. In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, there are many labyrinths called Mystery Dungeons that change their form every time a player enters. Pokémon, items and treasure within a Mystery Dungeon will change location every time a player re-enters.

Players can gain access to additional Mystery Dungeons through “Magnagates.” To open the Magnagates, players scan circular objects in the real world using the Nintendo 3DS Camera, allowing them to continue their adventure, even after they have completed the main Mystery Dungeons.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity also introduces wireless multiplayer features to the series. More details on this functionality will be shared in the future.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity will be available in retail stores, and also as a download from the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS. For more information, visit
