Nintendo Download: Become a Pokémon and Plunge into Dungeons

Go dungeon diving with the Pokemon Rescue Team, play through Langrisser I and II, and more this week on the Nintendo Switch.

That other Pokemon series

As opposed to the main Pokemon series, the Mystery Dungeon games get precious little hype. Yes, they’re a side-series, but they’re still Pokemon. So if you’re a fan of the pocket beasties, then you might be into this week’s big release on the Switch.

That, of course, is Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX. With some 400 pocket monsters to play with, and “mysterious, changing dungeons” to plumb, this is one that could hit the Poke-spot.

Aside from the above, Langrisser I and II land on Switch this week too. From NISA, these two old schoolish JRPGs should keep you busy for a good long time.
