'Pokmon Shuffle' out on Android and iOS for free download


A new Pokmon game is coming on its way to mobile devices!

Pokmon Shuffle, originally from the Nintendo 3DS handheld console, was recently announced by The Pokmon Company for a mobile release for the Android and iOS operating systems. The game will take players in battles with wild Pokmon using their wits and puzzle-solving skills!

The game’s gameplay pretty much follows the basic concept of most “match” games like Bejeweled and Candy Crush Saga. In the game, players will be pit in a fight against a wild Pokmon. In order to launch an attack on the Pokmon, players have to make a match of three or more Pokmon faces. Each match will have a corresponding damage hit on the opposing Pokmon, and more combos means faster and win!

For tougher stages later in the game, players can utilize in-game items that can help them in executing more combos, and they can even do a Mega Evolution for a massive attack on the opponent.

The game’s original version for the Nintendo 3DS has already been downloaded on the Nintendo eShop more than 4.5 million times. The game will be available for free download via Google Play Store for Android, or via the Apple App Store for iOS devices.

Pokmon Shuffle for mobile is part of the recent deal between Nintendo and Japanese game company DeNA in developing Nintendo’s iconic games for the mobile platform.
