Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity has been announced and is set to be released for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL, this game will 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 which is kind of a bummer because if you have played past Mysterious Dungeon titles  you had to take a personality test to determine what Pokemon you became but anyways, the game makes its 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 the Pokemon world and its 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 will also introduces a multiplayer feature, 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.
