Is It A Remake Or Port?

This game is, in fact, a remake and has been remastered for current consoles.

Considering the game will cost £49.99, you would hope that it's a GOOD remake at that.


What's New?

There are a number of cool new features included in the remastered Mystery Dungeon game including:

  • Choice of starter Pokemon
  • Graphics/Art style
  • Mega-Evolution 
  • Auto-Save
  • Auto mode (Pressing the L Button will automatically move the player and their team until an enemy is approached or the button is pressed again)
  • The A Button selects the best move against an opponent.
  • Up to five additional team members can be added while in a dungeon, for a total of eight teammates.
  • Some new items, like the Bank Orb.
  • The Makuhita Dojo has been revamped. Only one Pokémon can enter at a time, experience gained is boosted, and there is a time limit, depending on which ticket the player gives to Makuhita.
  • Gummies can no longer be taken out of the Kangaskhan Storage. Instead, they are eaten at a rescue camp.
  • The names of the player's main character, partner, and rescue team can be changed in the main menu.
  • TMs can no longer be Recycled - they are destroyed.
  • Recycle now instead changes a Plain Seed to a different Seed or an Oran Berry.
  • Friend Areas and the Wigglytuff Club are replaced by rescue team camps and Wigglytuff's Camp Corner.
  • Shiny Pokémon can be recruited using the Friend Bow.
  • A shortcut from the Team Base to the Pelipper Post Office is created by Diglett early on in the game.
