Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Coming To Nintendo 3DS This Winter

By Ishaan . September 12, 2012 . 10:56pm

The Nintendo 3DS is getting its second Pokémon spin-off game before the end of the year. A CoroCoro magazine leak in Japan (via Serebii.net) reveals that Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Magnagate and the Infinite Labyrinth is due out this winter.


CoroCoro’s article on the game says that you start out as a character that has turned into a Pokémon, having fallen into a dream. The game is in full 3D, and CoroCoro shows Pokémon from the Unova region. An augmented reality feature allows you to unlock dungeons by scanning objects in the real world.


More details can be found at the Serebii.net link above.


Thanks to Siliconera reader, Natat, for the heads up!

  • Hm. Speaking of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, the triple-pack Wii version never came in English despite its convenient cross-version member usage.

    GAAASP! :D

    Damn this looks fine, I hope the plot is as good as MD2, totally pumped for this :D

  • I haven’t played any of the others, except for trying a bit of one via emulator, but don’t the other games use that same plot?

    Anyways, those screenshots look cool. This might be the best way to see how well Pokémon 3D models look on the 3DS, as an actual title, before working on a main title.

    A Dungeon Pokemon series? in 3D Models??? MY BODY IS READY!!!^_^

    • There were a few on the Wii in 3D.

      But those weren’t brought over.

    Yes this is the best Nintendo news of the year, Ive been waiting so long for more Mystery Dungeon, cant wait for more details or trailer footage, hope PIkachu is still a playable option.

  • Natat

    I already expressed my excitement earlier last night, but daaamn I just love the Mystery Dungeon series! Can’t wait really!

  • Foofin Around

    This is great news, and I don’t even have a 3DS!  (^o^)/

    … But with that aside, I’ll miss the 2D Mystery Dungeon feel.  It just had a certain charm.  (^_^)

  • finally had to use those 3D models, eh?

    glad it’s for something related to the good spin-off games~

  • Ben Sylvia

    Really didn’t think they could get me interested in another Mystery Dungeon.

    Prove me wrong.

  • cant wait to see that anime preview that they do when the game comes out anyway looks like when i get the game i will cry at the end again just like i did with the other ones ah good times :)

  • Jamie Turner

    it looks nice. and worth to buy it, ( correct me if i’m wrong ) now it’s just pick the character you want and no persenality questions, i’m kinda dissepointed in that but some people like to choose their characters directly. everyone has his/her own opinion.
