REDMOND, Wash. -- March 22, 2013

For years, players have enjoyed exploring the Pokémon-filled worlds of the
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series. With Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to
Infinity, launching March 24 exclusively for Nintendo 3DS, the series has
evolved. In addition to becoming a Pokémon and exploring Mystery Dungeons,
players can now build their own Pokémon Paradise, discover Magnagates that can
be unlocked using the Nintendo 3DS camera, participate in a new cooperative
multiplayer mode and even purchase additional content to expand the Pokémon

“The Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games give Pokémon fans new ways to enjoy their
favorite characters,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice
president of Sales & Marketing. “Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity is
the first entry in the series on Nintendo 3DS, with features that just aren’t
possible on any other system.”

Players can choose to go on their adventure as one of five fan-favorite
Pokémon: Pikachu, Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott or Axew. Many of the Pokémon that
populate the game are from the Unova region, the region featured in the
Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games. Pokémon Mystery
Dungeon: Gates to Infinity features more than 20 distinct Mystery Dungeons
that change every time they are entered, granting players and their Pokémon a
near-infinite amount of adventurous possibilities. When not exploring Mystery
Dungeons, players can interact with other Pokémon and build their own Pokémon
Paradise with various shops and facilities.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity takes advantage of many of the
unique features of the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system. Players will instantly
be drawn into the 3D visuals that pop with vibrant colors and polished design.
Using the Nintendo 3DS camera, players can scan circular objects in the real
world to unlock Magnagates, special portals that lead to additional Mystery
Dungeons. When tagging another Nintendo 3DS system using StreetPass, players
can revive other players’ fallen Pokémon and receive rewards for their virtual
generosity. And for the first time in the series, players can team up with
others via a local wireless connection to explore special Mystery Dungeons
with up to three other players in cooperative Companion Mode. All experience
and treasure earned in this local-multiplayer mode are carried over to the
main single-player game.

Starting this Sunday, players can also purchase additional content for Pokémon
Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. The downloadable content includes new
Mystery Dungeons to explore, new items to collect and new Pokémon to interact
with. As a special treat for fans, the first dungeon, the Poké Forest Mystery
Dungeon, will be free to download beginning launch day through April 30. Three
additional downloadable Mystery Dungeons will also be available to purchase at
launch, with more dungeons available regularly throughout April. A
downloadable demo version of the game is currently available in the Nintendo

Nintendo is also offering a special bonus for people who buy both a Nintendo
3DS XL system and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. Anyone who
registers a Nintendo 3DS XL system and either Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates
to Infinity or Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon with Club Nintendo between March 21
and April 30 will receive a code to download one of five Nintendo 3DS games
for free: Super Mario 3D Land, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Art
