The Pokémon Company has announced the latest mobile game for its franchise in the form of Pokéland.
The free-to-play app follows last year’s widely successful Pokemon GO, as well as the recently released Magikarp Jump, released just last week. Pokéland appears to resemble the Pokémon Rumble series, complete with a similar art style set in an RPG brawler-style game.
This latest mobile outing for pocket monsters is more closely affiliated with Nintendo than predecessors, since you can use your Mii character within the game. Perhaps this means the game will also link in with My Nintendo rewards.
Pokéland is now in test mode on Android devices in Japan, with 10,000 users testing 6 islands, 52 stage types, 134 Pokemon, and up to the 15th flower of the “Champion Tower.” This alpha test runs from May 31 to June 9 at 15:00 JST.
No official release date has been announced for Pokéland just yet, but we’ll keep you posted on any further news relating to the latest Pokémon mobile craze.
Check out the game’s official website for more details and let us know if you’re excited about Pokéland.
