Nintendo Announces Release Date for "Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity"

Game to be released simultaneously to retail and via 3DS eShop on March 24th

Fans of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series have a new entry in the series to look forward to next year, when Nintendo releases the latest game in the dungeon-crawling series in Gates to Infinity on March 24th of next year. The game also features new mechanics and takes full advantage of the 3DS in the following ways:


  • Choose between Pikachu, Snivy, Oshawott, Tepig or Axew as playable characters
  • Use the 3DS cameras on real-world circular objects to access additional game-created "Magnagates" to create additional dungeons to playthrough after completing the main dungeons
  • New wireless multiplayer functionality with more specific details being revealed in the future


With the game putting the emphasis on replay value, the game's main Mystery Dungeons will change item locations every time players re-enter them, adding to the game's overall longevity, as well as taking full advantage of the 3DS' 3D hardware and functionality as seen in the screenshots below.
