Pokédex 3D Pro Brings A Wealth Of Knowledge To Nintendo eShop

By Ishaan . November 8, 2012 . 9:00am


This week’s Nintendo eShop release for 3DS isn’t exactly a game—it’s Pokédex 3D Pro, an updated version of the original free Pokédex 3D app, containing information on every Pokémon to date. Pokédex 3D Pro costs $15 and you can read our detailed impressions of it here.

Also available this week is a free playable demo for Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion, the side-scrolling platformer that serves as a modern spiritual successor to Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse on the Sega Genesis.


Finally, there’s Johnny Hotshot ($5.99), a shoot-out game where you take on the role of a sheriff after being warped inside of an arcade game.


This week will also see the release of Paper Mario: Sticker Star as a retail game for $40, but the game will be available simultaneously on the Nintendo eShop as well. You’ll be able to download it on November 11th.


European update:

Europe gets Pokédex 3D Pro this week, too, for €14.99/£13.49. Nintendo are also starting to roll out downloadable lessons for New Art Academy, and this costs €1.99/£1.79. This week’s lessons are “Fur & Feathers” and “Paint like Monet”. Also, Marvel Pinball 3D is on sale this week for a discounted price of €4.99/£4.49.

  • While I have no interest in paying $15 for that pokedex app (which i’m sure is very nice and all), I’m VERY interested to see any continued use of those models on the 3DS. ;3 *wink wink nudge nudge nonchalant cough*

      I’m sure they will. Speaking of which, I hope they will draw some VERY nice sprites for the mainline Pokémon games. =P

    Nintendo.  Making it’s fans feel like they’re prison buddies with Bubba and Ice since 2006. 

    Just a reference to how overpriced Nintendo content is, or atleast lack of Nintendo content.

      Um, just letting you know, but PS3 and Xbox 360 are worse in that regard and they’ve been out even longer now.

    • Indeed…regarding the overpriced stuff. How come the digital version of 3DS games costs even more that the already overpriced physical copies here ? ( A regular new 3DS game costs $70 dollars approx due to taxes and the digital versions costs almost 5 dollars more ) It´s like they don´t want more money or something haha.

    Don’t really care about the pokedex there as the price is too steep for me but Epic Mickey demo? Color me interested lol.^_^

    I played the demo and I loved it. The 3D is nice, maybe not overwhelming as other titles, but certainly it give a nice extra to the already beatiful backgrounds and art. I haven’t played the snes/sega genesis mickey mouse games, but I played henry hatsworth and sometimes I get that vibe and I loved it, if you had a 3DS download it now, is very worthy, I’m very convinced that this is going to be definitive epic mickey game and a must have of the 3DS library.

    Loved what I was able to play on Epic Mickey for 3DS. Just wish I could run a bit more faster.
