Hours of fun to be had at no cost with new Pokémon puzzle game—downloadable from Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

LONDON, UK—18 February 2015—The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo have today released Pokémon Shuffle, a new game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

en_about_limitedmoves_01Match three or more Pokémon in a line to attack and progress through a variety of different stages. The aim of the game is to reduce the wild Pokémon’s HP to zero within the number of moves available. The best players will use traditional Pokémon type-matching skills to defeat the wild Pokémon efficiently and make capturing it easier.

Downloadable at no cost from Nintendo eShop, Pokémon Trainers can play through every aspect and feature of the game at no cost. Players start the game with five Hearts, and one is used up for each stage played. When players run out of Hearts, they’ll need to wait for their Hearts to replenish in order to continue playing.

For players who wish to progress more quickly, there are opportunities to purchase Jewels using their Nintendo eShop balance, which can be redeemed in-game for a variety of benefits, including extra Coins to purchase more items, the ability to continue a match after turns run out, and Hearts to keep playing without waiting. Jewels are available for £0.89 each from within Pokémon Shuffle. Players will need to have access to the Nintendo eShop to purchase them.*

en_about_match3_01Pokémon Shuffle also incorporates fun connectivity features utilising StreetPass. Players can swap play records with others to see how they are progressing through the game, and get bonus Jewels via StreetPass, too! Passing by a large number of people, or passing by the same player multiple times, will give even more chances to earn bonus Jewels. And the fun doesn’t stop there! Free special stages to download will be added regularly throughout the year.

*Children should ask their parents’ permission before purchasing Jewels.

System owners can switch off as few or as many features as they desire to suit the parent’s and child’s needs. Individual features, including the ability to make purchases from Nintendo eShop, can be disabled without locking down the entire system for an older child. For more information, go to:
