A sequel to last year's Pokémon-infused roguelike, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon
, was announced in the latest issue of Famitsu
. The original was received with mixed reviews, but fans of the dungeon-crawling
formula welcomed the game with open arms. Both versions (Blue Rescue Team
for the DS, Red Rescue Team
for the GBA) sold well enough in the states, so we can probably expect to see this follow-up translated for English audiences eventually.
Not much else was revealed about Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2
, except that WiFi
support is planned. An "enhanced" story and changed format were mentioned, but neither were discussed in detail. The premise for the first game was a bit goofy, featuring a human character transformed into a Pokémon, but it was enjoyable enough to make us hope for a similar scenario with this sequel.
