Pokémon Mysterious Dungeon screenshots & details
Transform into a Pokémon? Neato.
Nintendo have recently unleashed several new screenshots from their upcoming Pokémon titles, Pokémon Mysterious Dungeon Red and Blue Rescue Force for the GBA and DS respectively. We’ve also managed to uncover several new details of both the story and the gameplay.
Apparently, at the beginning of the game your character is transformed into a Pokémon. As with previous Pokémon titles, which version you have will determine what Pokémon you will transform into (fire types for Red & water types for Blue). You are also asked a set of questions which determine the result of your transformation.
Gamers will also be accompanied by another Pokémon partner to begin their adventure. The currently known Pokémon partners at the beginning of the game are as follows:
- Charmander (Partner in Blue Version only)
- Squirtle (Partner in Red Version only)
- Cyndaquil (Partner in Blue Version only)
- Totodile (Partner in Red Version only)
- Torchic (Partner in Blue Version only)
- Mudkip (Partner in Red Version only)
More Pokémon will be acquired as the game progresses.
Once players begin their adventure with their partners, they will join a Rescue Force that goes around the world doing tasks for other Pokémon. When gamers successfully complete a task, their reputation will increase and they will have access to new areas and other tasks will be unlocked. Each game will also include dungeons that are randomised each time a player enters them.
As per usual, the two versions will be able to link up to one another, but at this stage it is unknown what will be acquired when doing so.
With an expected release of mid-2006 already announced for Japan, it's safe to say it will be a little while before either of these titles are released in PAL countries. But, to tide you over we’ve got several new screenshots from the DS version of the game in the media panel. [View Current Media]
