Update: The game is now live in the US as well.
Free to play Pokémon puzzler Pokémon Shuffle is now live on the European eShop for the Nintendo 3DS.
Pokémon Shuffle was released in Japan yesterday and while it wasn't expected to appear on our eShop until Thursday the game has been quietly released in Europe, with a US release expected to follow later today.
The game sets you off with 5 hearts which go down by one every time you play a stage. After that hearts restore themselves one every 30 minutes. Gems which restore hearts can be bought through the eShop for the prices below:
It's worth noting that the first five stages of the game are tutorials meaning you won't be able to really get into the game until your hearts restore themselves as the tutorial is not skippable. You are given a gem which allows you to restore them, but personally I felt like using it so soon was a waste. If you're still undecided on the game then you can check out a trailer for it below:
- 1 Gem - £0.89
- 6 Gems - £4.49
- 12 Gems - £8.09
- 35 Gems - £22.49
- 75 Gems - £42.99
