15th February 2013 – The European launch of the all-new Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity game on Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL introduces a vast world populated only by Pokémon. Here, you too have become a Pokémon and can choose to play as Pikachu, Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, or Axew as the game makes its European debut on 17th May 2013.
It is your mission to battle your way through Mystery Dungeons that have sprung up across this world, and to uncover a fiendish plot that threatens your new home and its Pokémon inhabitants. No dungeon will appear in the same way twice, so an infinite number of possibilities can unfold.
In this new game, players can discover Mystery Dungeons accessible only through Magnagates, mysterious portals activated when the Nintendo 3DS system’s cameras are used to scan round objects in the real world, such as footballs or clock faces. Once a Magnagate is discovered, the player becomes a different Pokémon to step through it and tackle the Mystery Dungeon that lies beyond. Items and money that players receive through successfully completing a dungeon revealed by a Magnagate can be used in the main adventure, too.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity also introduces wireless multiplayer features, allowing as many as four people to work together to battle through dungeons.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity will be available at retail and also as a download on Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL from 17th May. For more information, visit: www.pokemon.co.uk/MysteryDungeon.
