Your Infinite Adventure as a Pokémon Awaits in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity
For years, players have enjoyed exploring the Pokémon-filled worlds of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series. With Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, launching March 24 exclusively for Nintendo 3DS, the series has evolved. In addition to becoming a Pokémon and exploring Mystery Dungeons, players can now build their own Pokémon Paradise, discover Magnagates that can be unlocked using the Nintendo 3DS camera, participate in a new cooperative multiplayer mode and even purchase additional content to expand the Pokémon experience.
"The Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games give Pokémon fans new ways to enjoy their favorite characters," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity is the first entry in the series on Nintendo 3DS, with features that just aren't possible on any other system."
Players can choose to go on their adventure as one of five fan-favorite Pokémon: Pikachu, Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott or Axew. Many of the Pokémon that populate the game are from the Unova region, the region featured in the Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity features more than 20 distinct Mystery Dungeons that change every time they are entered, granting players and their Pokémon a near-infinite amount of adventurous possibilities. When not exploring Mystery Dungeons, players can interact with other Pokémon and build their own Pokémon Paradise with various shops and facilities.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity takes advantage of many of the unique features of the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system. Players will instantly be drawn into the 3D visuals that pop with vibrant colors and polished design. Using the Nintendo 3DS camera, players can scan circular objects in the real world to unlock Magnagates, special portals that lead to additional Mystery Dungeons. When tagging another Nintendo 3DS system using StreetPass, players can revive other players' fallen Pokémon and receive rewards for their virtual generosity. And for the first time in the series, players can team up with others via a local wireless connection to explore special Mystery Dungeons with up to three other players in cooperative Companion Mode. All experience and treasure earned in this local-multiplayer mode are carried over to the main single-player game.
Starting this Sunday, players can also purchase additional content for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. The downloadable content includes new Mystery Dungeons to explore, new items to collect and new Pokémon to interact with. As a special treat for fans, the first dungeon, the Poké Forest Mystery Dungeon, will be free to download beginning launch day through April 30. Three additional downloadable Mystery Dungeons will also be available to purchase at launch, with more dungeons available regularly throughout April. A downloadable demo version of the game is currently available in the Nintendo eShop.
Nintendo is also offering a special bonus for people who buy both a Nintendo 3DS XL system and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. Anyone who registers a Nintendo 3DS XL system and either Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity or Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon with Club Nintendo between March 21 and April 30 will receive a code to download one of five Nintendo 3DS games for free: Super Mario 3D Land, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!, Star Fox 64 3D or Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive!
