Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity will have launch-day DLC
When Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity releases for the Nintendo 3DS on March 24, fans will immediately have the opportunity to download additional content via the Nintendo eShop. Additional content includes all-new Mystery Dungeons to explore, new items to collect and, of course, new Pokémon. After all, you've gotta catch 'em all.
Although launch-day DLC is always a slippery slope, it should calm the potential anger knowing that the first downloadable content pack, the Poké Forest Mystery Dungeon, will be free to download from launch day until April 30. Three additional downloadable Mystery Dungeons will be available to purchase when the game launches, and additional content will launch regularly throughout April.
Nintendo also announced today that in addition to the single-player dungeon exploration of Hero Mode, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity will include local multiplayer for up to four players in Companion Mode. You'll be able to connect wirelessly and explore new Mystery Dungeons, collecting experience and items that carry over to Hero Mode. Players can also help out other players by tagging them using the StreetPass feature and reviving their fallen Pokémon using Reviver Seeds.
