Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Trailer Showcases DLC, Battles And More
Dungeon-centric trailer shows off what happens when we dive into those Gates to Infinity!
It’s a great time to be a Pokémon fan and a 3DS owner alike! Not only do we have X/Y coming this October, but we’re all set to kick off springtime with a 3DS-exclusive Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game.
Nintendo’s unveiled a new trailer for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates To Infinity, showing off the randomly generated dungeons as explored by intrepid Pokémon. There’s plenty of treasure and battling to be had, but the trailer also showcases some nifty news about downloadable content for the forthcoming game.
Check out Nintendo’s official Youtube channel if you’re having difficulty seeing the video.
The downloadable content seems to cover a wide variety of environments, kicking off with Poké Forest. In keeping with Nintendo’s recent fondness for rewarding early adopters of new games, this DLC locale will apparently be free to download until April 30th 2013, at which point it presumably will then be paid DLC.
Other locations available to download and explore are the verdant Ivy Park, the sunny Scalchop Beach and Pika Land. Curiously, the trailer mentions nothing of the game’s famous augmented-reality capabilities, which allow you to use your 3DS camera to turn anything circular into a portal to an ingame dungeon. We’re not sure why Nintendo chose not to showcase this in a dungeon-centric video, not least since it’s a frellin’ cool feature, people.
As is now standard practice, the game will be available to buy from March 24th both at retail and via the 3DS eShop. Exciting! Bear in mind that this trailer and associated information comes from Nintendo’s American branch, meaning that European and Oceanic details are as yet unknown.
Additionally, the trailer showcases some tasty DLC goodness, but doesn’t specify how much gamers can expect to pay for such goodies. How much would you pay for some extra Mystery Dungeon action?
