Brand new game in the franchise hits Nintendo’s handheld soon.
In spite of the mixed critical reception that it garners, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company’s Pokemon Mystery Dungeon spin off series has continued to be well received by players, and consistently posted good sales numbers. Small wonder, then, that they keep making new ones- and indeed, a new one has been announced for the franchise- Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon will be releasing by this year’s end exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS in North America and Japan, with the European release slated for Spring 2016.
The Pokemon Company didn’t exactly tell us much about the game that we couldn’t already have guessed at thanks to prior experience with the franchise. “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,” they said, which, well, sounds like all the other games so far.
Nonetheless, I like Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, and the second game, in particular (Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Time) was great. Hopefully, this new one is more like those, and less like the ones that followed.
