As the release of Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon approaches, new information has been revealed in CoroCoro for the upcoming dungeon crawler. Various details were revealed about the locations you can travel to in the game and the Pokémon NPCs you can encounter. It was also revealed that, as in previous games, you can send out a mail request to be rescued if you fall in a dungeon.
One feature discussed was the fact that the game will feature multiple villages, which act as the hubs from which you go out to explore dungeons. These villages will be spread across multiple continents, which you can traverse with the help of Lapras. Some examples given were Gentle Town and Waiwai Town, which can be found on the Water Continent.
Several Pokémon NPCs run a variety of different shops and services that you can take advantage of. In Waiwai Town, for example, Kangaskhan runs a Pokémon Cafe. When you help out other Pokémon, she’ll give you presents as a reward. Other shopkeepers include Hawlucha, who will teach your team members new moves, Klefki, who opens Treasure Chests for you, and Cofagrigus, a returning NPC who will buy gold bars you find in dungeons.
The final NPC detailed is Meowth, who runs a theater where you can challenge dungeons with special rules. These dungeons are harder than usual, but if you manage to complete one, you can upload a video of your success to the internet.
The final feature revealed is the return of the jukebox from previous games. Here, you’ll be able to listen to music from throughout the game, and as you progress, more tracks will become available. You can even listen to the music through headphones while your 3DS is in sleep mode.
