Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity Releases March 24th

Hold onto your Pokeballs, kids—Nintendo has finally confirmed that Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity will be hitting store shelves in North America on March 24th, 2013.

This latest 3DS title in the Mystery Dungeon series of Pokemon games will offer something a little different, in that players will be able to use the handheld system’s camera to scan various objects and thereby gain access to new locations. It’ll also be the first fully 3D game in the series, and as if you didn’t know already, players will have 20 constantly changing dungeons available to battle through.

And just to give you more options, you’ll be able to either purchase this through a retail store or download it from the eShop.

The press release gave a little more info to get you hopped up with Pokexcitement (see what I did there?!):

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity to Release on March 24 for 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.

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
