Revealed at today’s Nintendo Direct, Pocket Card Jockey is the new game from Pokémon developer Game Freak, and it’s a mixture of solitaire and horse-racing. You know, those two related things that people do. Basically, it’s a “fast-paced, simplified version of Solitaire to propel your horse through intense races,” and it actually sounds pretty amusing.
Sticking with what they know,
Pocket Card Jockey is about owning and raising your very own creature to win. In this case the creature’s a horse and the trials are races. You level up your horse to race, and then, during races, use cards to power them up and achieve victory. You’ll win trophies for high profile races, encouraging sponsors to your brand, and eventually you’ll retire your faithful steeds to the farm where they can breed you new ponies.
Pocket Card Jockey is a 3DS eShop exclusive, coming in May.
