It's that time of the month again. Once again Japanese Pokemon magazine CoroCoro has leaked, and so far we've gotten a nice little tibbit of information.
Specifically, the magazine revealed a new Pokemon Mystery Dungeon! The title of the game translates as Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Magnagate and the Infinite Labyrinth. The game will be available on the 3DS and thus will, of course, be in 3D. Surprisingly, this Mystery Dungeon is stand alone, not a paired version like the previous games have been.
Plot details are few and far between. What is known is that your character turns into a Pokemon after falling into a dream. No time travel Shenanigans this time around!
Of course, being set in the fifth Generation, the new PMD will feature a number of Unova Pokemon alongside returning faces. Thus far, the only confirmed player Pokemon is Pikachu, but this is still breaking news, so it may change at any moment! Alongside the yellow mascot, Tepig, Oshawott, Snivy, and Axew have been revealed to be choices for our Partner Pokemon.
Kecleon is the only announced returning Pokemon from the previous games, still running the goods store. Handing out quests is now handled by Dunsparce. Cofagirus runs a store, which stocks currently unknown items. Rampardos has taken over the treasure store, as well. Other then them, we also know Gurdurr, Virizion, and Hydreigon will be making appearances.
We do know one last thing about the new game. Making use of the 3DS's built in camera, the game will incorperate an Augmented Reality feature. Items scanned in real life become Magnagates within the game, which is where the title comes from. These gates, in turn, open the way to new dungeons.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Magnagate and the Infinite Labyrinth will see release in Japan this very year. Check out the official Japanese trailer here!
