Players Chat and Make Friends with more than 380 other Pokémon
Pokémon fans have dreamed of this moment, and now Nintendo is making it a reality. Starting Sept. 20, players who pick up a copy of the new Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team for Nintendo DS or Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team for Game Boy Advance SP will for the first time experience the game as an actual Pokémon character, which allows them to interact with – and even talk to – other Pokémon.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon asks the question, “what if you woke up one day and you were a Pokémon?” Pokémon Mystery Dungeon starts players on an adventure unlike those found in any previous Pokémon game. Players awake to find that they have been transformed into a Pokémon. They choose one other Pokémon as a partner and set off to form a rescue team in a land ravaged by natural disasters. The players chat with Pokémon and make friends with more than 380 other Pokémon along the way. Players can accept rescue jobs to help fellow Pokémon who are in trouble. The deep storyline draws players in, while randomly generated dungeons keep them coming back for more.
An exciting feature in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon lets friends who each have a copy of the game come to each other’s aid. If a player loses a battle in a dungeon, another player can come to his or her rescue. Fallen players who are rescued do not lose their money or items, and can restart their games from where they left off.
“Pokémon Mystery Dungeon offers millions of our Pokémon fans the chance of a lifetime,” says George Harrison, Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. “There’s no better way to experience the world of Pokémon than by actually becoming one.”
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team for Nintendo DS and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team for Game Boy Advance SP will be available Sept. 20, and are Rated E for Everyone. Both games are almost identical in content, allowing the players to choose either one for the system they want to use. The Official Nintendo Power Player’s Guide for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon is now available at retail. For more information about the games, visit www.PokemonMysteryDungeon.com.
