New Downloadable Content and Multiplayer Features For Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity
Starting on launch day, downloadable content will be available for purchase on a regular basis in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS. 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 piece of downloadable content, the Poké Forest Mystery Dungeon, will be free to download from launch day until April 30. Three additional downloadable Mystery Dungeons will be available to purchase when the game launches, and additional content will launch regularly throughout April.
In addition to the single-player dungeon exploration of Hero Mode, the game includes local multiplayer for up to four players in Companion Mode. By connecting wirelessly, players can work together to explore new Mystery Dungeons and collect experience and items that carry over to Hero Mode. Players can also help out other players by tagging them using the StreetPass feature and reviving their fallen Pokémon using Reviver Seeds.
Today also marks the launch of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity website, where Pokémon fans can see more Pokémon they'll meet in the game, learn more about Companion Mode and other game features, and view a new video full of dungeon sneak peeks.
