More Pokémon Mystery Dungeon for DS

Essentially the same again.

Nintendo plans to release two fresh Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games on 20th April in the USA. European plans are yet to be made.

Dubbed Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, both will, for all intents and purposes, be exactly the same as the Blue Rescue Team games from 2006.

The only differences are brushed up graphics and a fresh storyline, actually.

The Mystery Dungeon series casts you as a Pokémon rather than a trainer collecting them. Before you start your adventure you have to answer a bunch of personality questions to determine which anime animal you best represent.

After that you toddle off on your quest to recruit other Pokémon by buying them houses and impressing them with your rescue skills.

Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness will have 490 bizarre creatures to meet in its world, and the returning Wi-Fi rescue mode that lets you help your friends out in a pinch.

Mystery Dungeon Blue Rescue Team commanded a solid response in 2006. It's not as good as Diamond/Pearl, but for those after something a little different from the series, this could be the one to ensnare you.
