'Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon' Announcements

The Pokémon Company has announced the release date for the latest installment of the RPG style Pokémon games. Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon will release on November 20 for the Nintendo 3DS. All 6 generations of the 720 Pokémon will be included in the game. Some game shots were also released with English dialog on them.

Also released were two promotional videos on the Japanese Pokémon Youtube channel. Accurate translations of the videos could not be found at the time of writing this, but some elements could be deciphered from knowledge of past games.

While there was some game play footage of general interactions in what looked like a hub world, the majority was of the dungeon exploring. Returning features include items found in dungeons, floor traps, holding items, orb items, grid and turn based movement, and uncovering the floor map as one explores it. New features include all three-dimensional environments, wearable accessories, a simultaneous tri-attack on enemies, and Pokémon to proper scale with each other. No longer will twenty feet long Pokémon be the same sprite size as ones that are one foot long.
