We Asked For It, So We Got It

Fans have been whining for years to have a new Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game developed. In the latest Pokémon Direct, the wish of those fans has been fulfilled by as Nintendo announced the upcoming release of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX for Nintendo Switch.

However, the game isn’t exactly a new title in the series. It’s actually a revamped remake of the original Pokemon Mystery Dungeons: Blue Rescue Team and Red Rescue Team, originally published on Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance, respectively. At the standard price of $60, we’re going to go over the game’s new features and determine whether or not we think its a cop or a drop.

While more details on the game’s contents are to be confirmed, a demo of the game can be downloaded from the Nintendo Switch eShop. The game is expected to launch worldwide on March 6, 2020.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is a Fresh & Immersive Experience

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, is a Pokemon adventure that takes place in a world where the player controls a Pokemon rather than a human character, as the game is set in a space that is only inhabited by free roaming Pokemon.

The premise of the game is that you embody a team of Pokemon and help other Pokemon that are in trouble! To do this, you will have to answer a series of questions at the beginning of the game that will determine which Pokémon you will become among 16 playable ones, and then decide which other Pokémon, among remaining 15 available, will accompany you in this new adventure.

When you start playing, you will see a Pokémon in front of you and you can understand everything it says. After analyzing the situation you realize that you yourself have been turned into a Pokémon and that your world has begun to suffer a multitude of natural disasters and many problems for it.

What's New in the Remake

In addition, the gameplay has been improved to facilitate the control of the Pokémon with the following improvements in this real-time action RPG. These quality-of-life enhancements make the gameplay a lot smoother and (from what I can predict) will make completing the game easier and less of a chore.

  • Automatic scrolling: For the first time, the automatic scrolling feature has been added so that players can advance their adventure more easily. The displacement will be controlled with the L button, and the automatic mode will be deactivated when approaching an enemy.

     

  • Use of movements automatically with button A: The normal thing so far was for the player to select a movement from the four available to attack an enemy. On this occasion, when the players are not sure which one to use, it will be enough to press the A button in front of an enemy to use the most appropriate movement against him.
  • Up to 8 Pokémon: in the previous deliveries the maximum number of Pokémon with which you could enter the territories was 3, in this version, the collection teams can be up to 8 Pokémon.

  • Weakened teams in the territories: When players fall weakened in a territory, they may ask other players to rescue them or even go themselves to do so if they have another rescue team available. Once rescued, they can continue the adventure from the place where their team weakened

Try the Demo Before You Spend $60 On It

If you’re ready to try it, a trial version of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX will be available on the Nintendo eShop at no cost.

Being the standard price of a game for a re-make, I personally think that I’ll be waiting for a price drop to purchase this title. Its mostly because I was recently spoiled by Rune Factory 4: Special ~ Archival edition, which is the same price for a remake of a 3DS game but also includes pre-order bonuses like their original sound track and art book. But, for hardcore fans of the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series and art style, I suggest purchasing this game whenever you can as its a great improvement on the original Mystery Dungeon games.

Even with just the demo, I was able to appreciate the game’s art style and experience enough of it that I can hold off until there’s a price drop in the future (which is usually the case with spin-off titles.) With this trial version you can play the first part of the story and transfer the saved data to the full version of the game when it released. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX will be released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on March 6, 2020, which is now available for pre-order. By pre-ordering the digital version of the game, you can have an early download, which lets you get in on the action the moment it releases!
