Details about the game are light at the moment, but it appears it isn't deviating too much from the core series, which has now sold more than 13 million copies worldwide.

In its very brief announcement, Nintendo said Super Mystery Dungeon will offer "even greater, randomly generated dungeons." Players will do battle with the help of Legendary and Mythical Pokemon in their effort to "save the world in a sweeping tale of adventure and mystery."

Super Mystery Dungeon will launch for 3DS in North America this winter.

The most recent entry in the series was Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, which was released in the west in 2013. In a 5/10 review, critic Heidi Kemps wrote: "It's as cute as a button, but dull, simplistic dungeon exploration drags Gates to Infinity into mediocrity."
