Nintendo released details regarding the multiplayer and DLC features for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity last week, but I forgot to post them. Here they are now, late, but no longer forgotten.
Starting on launch day, March 24, Nintendo will begin releasing a stream of DLC for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, The first piece of DLC will be available at launch and until April 30, 2013 for free. This free DLC will be the Poké Forest Mystery Dungeon (pictured above), three other dungeons will be available for purchase at launch as well. Additional content will launch throughout April.
In addition to the single player Hero Mode campaign, up to four players can connect locally to play Companion Mode. Gamers will be able to explore new Mystery Dungeons in Companion Mode, gain experience, and find items, all of which can be carried over to Hero Mode. A StreetPass feature will also allow gamers to revive each others’ Pokemon with Reviver Seeds.
Also, the official Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity Website is now open.
Gamers with a copy of Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 can visit GameStop starting March 4, 2013 to grab Meloetta. Of course, you’ll also need a Nintendo DS/3DS system to take advantage of this event. Meloetta will only be available for a limited time; more information is scheduled to appear before February meets its end.
Meloetta is a Pyschic type Pokémon that has the Serene Grace ability. Serene Grace doubles the chance of a move having an additional effect.
Nintendo of America just announced that a short Nintendo Direct will air tomorrow morning, January 8th, 2013, to discuss the major Pokémon announcement. This Nintendo Direct segment will go live at 6:00 A.M. EST. in North America. Mini Fortress will be awake to follow the announcement.
Heads up Pokémon fans, looks like there’s some major news headed your way. The official Pokémon website is teasing a big news story for January 8th, 2013.
While we don’t get into rumors here at Mini Fortress, we think it’s fun to speculate, so what kind of news could Nintendo be teasing? The next generation of Pokémon games for the Nintendo 3DS? A Wii U Pokémon game? Whatever the news may be, check back in four days for the reveal.
Players will be able to choose one of five Pokémon – Pikachu, Snivy, Oshawott, Tepig or Axew – to explore 20 Mystery Dungeons that change (Pokémon, items and treasures relocate) each time they are entered. Battle and befriend Pokémon, hunt for treasure, and explore the world of Gates to Infinity in glorious 3D.
Additional Mystery Dungeons can be accessed through “Magnagates” which are opened by scanning circular objects with the Nintendo 3DS Camera in the real world. This will allow you to continue the adventure after the main game is complete.
Wireless multiplayer features will also be available, but Nintendo will share those details at a later time. For now, check out this small batch of screenshots for the game.
Later this year, Pokedex 3D Pro will be replacing the current free version on the eShop. Starting August 31, an update for Pokedex 3D will be going live. This update will unlock 6 Pokemon including Reshiram and Zekrom. All other Pokemon will be available for download through SpotPass which includes alternate forms.
When the update is live you will be able to press an update button inside the application to download the content.
First up, Pokedex 3D Pro has finally received a release date. Those looking forward to this Nintendo eShop exclusive will be able to download it on November 8, 2012. Another heads up, Pokedex 3D will no longer be offered for free on the eShop after October 1. It will instead be replaced by the Pro version.
There are two new features being touted for the next entry in the Pokemon franchise. The first new feature is called “Join Avenue”. Join Avenue is a new area for Pokemon trainers to explore that will be populated with players you have interacted with through wireless tag mode, trading, or battling. These players will set up shops in Join Avenue that will sell rare items that can’t be found elsewhere in the game.
The other new feature is called “Memory Link”. By connecting Pokemon Black/White 2 with a previously played Pokemon Black/White game, you will be able to see what has happened to some of the characters during the two years since the first games.
Pokemon Black/White 2 will be available on October 7 alongside Pokemon Dream Radar on the Nintendo eShop. Check out the press release below for full details.
