Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon Japanese Pre-order Bonuses Detailed

Japanese gamers that decide to pre-order Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon will be entitled to three different pre-order bonuses depending on whether they choose to purchase the game digitally or physically. If you go for the physical version then you can get a free 3DS Home Menu theme theme. The theme includes art from the game’s box as well as a set of 3D stickers. These are designed by Ken Sugimori. But if you decide to purchase it digitally you can the very same Home Menu theme as well as an additional theme based on the game which you can personalise to your liking. Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon launches on the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on September 17th, but those of us in the west will have to wait a while before we can get our hands on it.

Pokkén Tournament Japanese Release Date Revealed

Pokkén Tournament is every fan’s dream come true — a 3D, high-definition Pokemon fighting game. Controlling a Machamp with a full grappling move set like King from Tekken sounds like an early birthday present! Pokkén Tournament is due to be released in Japanese arcades in July of this year, while the exact date is still unknown. The game has not been announced for Wii U, nor has it been announced for release in North America or Europe. Yet.

Sadly to say, American and European details for the game are basically non-existent. Still, it would be a long stretch to believe that the Pokemon Company would consider keeping this game domestic. Think of all the fans around the world that would riot… It’s not a pretty thought!

Well, that’s exactly what kids will be able to do in the new Pokémon Animation Studio which will be opening in KidZania– a new ‘child-sized’ city opening on 25th June in Westfield. The studio will be the first thing you see when you walk in, and you’ll be able to learn all about stop-motion animation and even be able to create your own. Primarily their focus is on education, but this will obviously be super fun to take part in as well! I wonder if they’ll let the adults join in too?
