One of the best entries in Spike Chunsoft’s longrunning Mystery Dungeon series, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team casts the player as a human transformed into a pocket monster and cast into a world inhabited by Pokémon—a world the player must help save. The player and their partners explore dungeons one step at a time, enemies moving when they do, in true roguelike fashion.

Just watched the Nintendo Direct, and when it started with this I thought it was a brilliant troll! Not hating, I’ve played a couple of the Mystery Dungeon games and think it was fun, but don’t imagine it was what most folk were tuning in for.

Of course what came afterwards I’m sure won’t send Poke fandom into meltdown or anything...
