Play as a Fan-Favorite Pokémon in Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon

Nintendo 3DS Game Features Every Known Pokémon – All 720 of Them!

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Have you ever wanted to be a Pokémon in a world inhabited by nothing but
other Pokémon? That’s the premise behind the fun new Pokémon
Super Mystery Dungeon
game, now available for the Nintendo
family of systems. After choosing to play as one of 20
fan-favorite Pokémon, including Pikachu and Riolu, you embark on a
journey to discover a mysterious force that is turning Legendary Pokémon
into stone. In addition to being able to play as a Pokémon, the game
features all 720 known Pokémon from every game in the series, including
Legendary and Mythical Pokémon. How you discover or interact with these
Pokémon is part of the fun!

As you journey through the game, you will enter a series of Mystery
Dungeons with randomly generated interiors – meaning you will never play
through the same dungeon twice! With the game’s near-infinite replay
value, a new adventure awaits you around every corner.

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon is one of the most exciting and
transformational entries in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series,”
said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of
Sales & Marketing. “Whether for yourself or the Pokémon fans in your
life, the game is a great gift idea this holiday season.”

Traveling through a series of mysterious and twisting dungeons might
sound like a dangerous task, but no need to fear: In the game, you can
befriend different Pokémon and have them join you on your quests. You
can also collect items to equip and use while fighting enemies in
engaging turn-based battles. During these battles, strategy is key, so
you’ll want to make sure to bring along the right type of Pokémon when
you enter each Mystery Dungeon.

With the new Connection Orb – a giant galaxy-like map that connects you
with other Pokémon and gives you new quests to complete – you’ll
befriend Pokémon and conquer dungeons in no time at all. You’ll even get
to battle alongside Legendary and Mythical Pokémon, and combine the
moves of your team to unleash attacks that will knock out even the
mightiest Pokémon foe.

For a limited time, when you purchase Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon
in stores, in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS or at
at a suggested retail price of $39.99, you will also receive a free
theme inspired by the game for your Nintendo 3DS HOME Menu. Purchasers
will receive a download code for the free theme until Dec. 6. (The code
expires on Oct. 20, 2016.)
