In a move that should surprise absolutely nobody, Nintendo has announced that Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity will be released internationally. For those who don’t know, Mystery Dungeon is one of the more successful Pokemon spin-off series that takes the form of a dungeon crawler. In addition to 20 randomized dungeons, this iteration allows you to use the 3DS camera to find Magnagates, gates that give you whole new dungeons to explore by scanning real-world objects. This game also supports local multiplayer with up to four characters. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity will be available in North America on March 24th next year.

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, visithttp://www.pokemon.com/MysteryDungeon.
