Nintendo wants you to find your inner Pokémon.
TWO NEW NINTENDO DS GAMES LET PLAYERS EXPLORE THEIR INNER POKÉMON
Randomized Dungeons, Online Features Fuel Latest Mystery Dungeon Adventures
REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 26, 2008 – Ever wondered what it would be like to become a Pokémon? With the April 20 launch of Pokémon® Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Pokémon® Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness for Nintendo DS™, hand-held gamers will soon find out.
In this pair of action-packed adventures, players journey as actual Pokémon through a fantastic land untouched by humans. Before the game starts, players take a test to help them figure out which of 16 Pokémon best represents their personalities. Players then experience their adventure through the eyes of a Pokémon as they explore the land and embark on an epic journey through time and darkness. They talk and team up with other Pokémon to set out on an epic voyage while navigating an endless array of randomly generated dungeons.
More than 490 Pokémon populate these new games, guaranteeing strategic, intense battles and infinite possibilities, no matter which Pokémon players become. To widen their circle of Pokémon friends, Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection lets users engage in wireless rescue operations and send alerts to their friends via e-mail or mobile text message.
"Only the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series lets players experience the thrill of actually becoming a Pokémon character," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "It's a unique perspective that delights both longtime Pokémon fans and newcomers alike."
