As weird as it is that the original Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is almost eight years old, it's even weirder that the series is coming back, this time to 3DS. Or maybe I just haven't been paying attention. Also, I suppose milking Pokemon can never be "weird." Like the upcoming Pokemon X and Y, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity is following the spirit of Nintendo's 3D enabled portable and opting to use 3D models instead of sprite-based graphics. Other than that, I doubt anything will be too different.
Well, except the "Discover the Magnagate" feature. It seems like you can use the 3DS' augmented reality capabilities to search out mysterious, dark, gaping holes in the real world that lead to new dungeons in the game world. Gross.
Apparently Gates to Infinity is releasing on March 24, a mere five days from now. Four days, time zone depending. However, I think we all know what game you all should be buying on March 24: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. Sorry, Pikachu.
