Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX Shows Off Dungeon-Crawling Gameplay In New Trailer

A deeper look at the upcoming Pokemon Mystery Dungeon remake.


Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX has a new trailer, showing off some of the dungeon-crawling gameplay from the new Switch remake of the 2006 Game Boy Advance/Nintendo DS title. The first announcement of the game gave us some idea of what to expect, but this new trailer gives us a better look at how it actually plays.

For those unfamiliar with the game, which has spawned four sequels (one exclusive to Japan), it casts you as a human who gets turned into a Pokemon and is made to team up with a partner to tackle dungeons. It's got grid-based dungeon-crawling gameplay that's quite different from what fans of the mainline Pokemon series are used to.

The new art style is looking good, too, in the footage below.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX releases for Nintendo Switch on March 6. A demo is available on the Switch Eshop.

For fans of the more traditional Pokemon experience, Nintendo recently released the Pokemon Home app for easier trading, allowing you to export monsters from the 3DS to your Switch games. Pokemon Sword and Shield will also receive two expansions this year. A new Legendary coming to the game has recently been teased.
