A new Nintendo Direct aired worldwide today and brought with it the reveal of a brand new Pokémon game in the form of Pokémon Shuffle.
The game plays a lot like Pokémon Link Battle although a bit more complex than Link Battle was. The aim is to match up three Pokémon in a row to deal damage to the enemy, but with Pokémon Shuffle you have to complete each stage within a certain amount of moves. There are also items to help you along your way if you get stuck.
Interestingly enough the game will be free to download and play, but there are paid aspects to it. If you run out of lives completely then you have to wait ten minutes before you can battle again. If you want to battle sooner then you can pay a price in order to do so. Certain items can also be bought in the game by spending money. Pokémon Shuffle will be released in February through the eShop and if you wish to know more then you can find a trailer below:
After this afternoon's Nintendo Direct a trailer was released introducing Hoopa to Pokémon fans outside of Japan. No details about how the Pokémon will be given out outside of Japan have been revealed, but you can check out the trailer below:
