Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have released a surprise new Pokemon game.
Titled simply Pokemon Playhouse, the new game is designed to provide a preschool-level experience for kids – just in case the series wasn’t kid-friendly enough.
Here’s a rundown on the game, via Nintendo:
Discover the fun activities throughout Pokémon Playhouse, an official Pokémon app for younger Pokémon fans from The Pokémon Company International. Download and play for free, with no in-app purchases.
In Pokémon Playhouse, your child can interact with all kinds of cute Pokémon as they explore various locations, including a tower, lounge, and outdoor playground. Every location within Pokémon Playhouse features activities created just for younger Pokémon fans, such as taking care of Pokémon in the Pokémon Grooming activity, or identifying Pokémon in the night sky in the Search the Stars activity.
To accompany the unique look of the Pokémon in Pokémon Playhouse, your child can watch them at play in new picture stories. Head to the Playroom to listen to a story and see the adorable Pokémon go on exciting new adventures!
At the beginning of their time in the Pokémon Playhouse, your child will be given a Pokémon Egg to keep track of. As your child explores the Pokémon Playhouse and completes activities, the Pokémon Egg will begin to hatch, and eventually reveal a new Pokémon!
Designed for children ages 3–5, no reading or math skills are necessary to complete activities. A friendly human character will host and narrate all the activities so your child can enjoy every aspect of the Pokémon Playhouse regardless of their learning level.
The Pokémon Playhouse app does not collect any personal information and does not include any in-app purchases.
Download the app for free and let your child start exploring the wonderful Pokémon Playhouse today!
