Japanese magazine CoroCoro has released some rather interesting Pokemon-related news in its latest issue. According to the scan above, and translated by Serebii, a new title named The Band of Thieves & 1,000 Pokemon has been announced for the 3DS. The brand new game will be released as a free downloadable eShop title for a limited time only.
The Band of Thieves and 1,000 Pokemon will make heavy use of the 3DS’ StreetPass function in order to collect a variety of different Pokemon and battle area thieves. According to translations, the thieves are based upon the two main antagonists, Raiotto and Maririn, from the latest Pokemon movie Diancie & The Cocoon of Destruction.
Japanese 3DS users can download the free title when it launches in the eShop on June 5, as well as obtain a special downloadable Pikachu. Currently, there’s no indication of whether the spin-off game will come to the west.
