First Gameplay, Details, and Japanese Release Date for Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon

When Nintendo announced Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon earlier this month, we were scratching our heads regarding the lack of any real details for the game.

We’ve learned from their Nintendo Direct broadcast this morning that not only will the game not be free-to-play (it will cost 4,700 yen in Japan), it will let you play as the entire roster of 720 Pokemon available in the series thus far. Featured above, you can view the game’s debut trailer.

Despite overwhelming roster of 700+ Pokemon that are available to use in your adventures, you’ll only be able to take out 20 Pokemon at a time.

Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon is set for a release in Japan on September 17th, while a North American and European release is planned for some time this winter and spring, respectively.

    I hope it’s as good as the Explorers games.

    Day one, I want to believe. Maybe it won’t be the next Explorers of Sky, but they won’t repeat the same mistake they made with Gates to Infinity.
