During today’s Pokémon Direct, Pokémon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara revealed that Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX is coming to Nintendo Switch.
DX for the Switch reimagines the original Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team, a pair of games that were released back in 2006 on Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS. Despite the significantly different hardware capabilities between the two handhelds, the differences were mostly cosmetic.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX brings the game to life with a new artsy, colorful design and 3D graphics. The environments almost look like they were hand-drawn. The updated adventure is set to launch on March 6. A demo for the game is already available on the Nintendo eShop.
