Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon coming to 3DS in 2016

Publish date:

The next instalment in the Pokmon Mystery Dungeon series has been announced by Nintendo.

TitledPokmon Super Mystery Dungeon, the game will see a European release on 3DS next year.

Japanese and America fans will have the chance to play the game a little earlier, with releases this Autumn and Winter, respectively.

The Mystery Dungeon run of games breaks fromPokmon's classic turn-based combat, providing players with a series of procedurally-generated dungeons that they traverse in the form of one of the titular creatures.

Pokmon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team and Red Rescue Team marked the inaugural titles in the spin-off range, released on DS and Game Boy Advance ten years ago.

Since then, the franchise has come to both Wii (as a digital-only WiiWare release) and 3DS, selling in excess of 13 million units across seven standalone titles.
