New Pokémon puzzle game can be downloaded for FREE at the Nintendo eShop on your 3DS.

The aim of Pokémon Shuffle is to battle wild Pokémon, dealing damage by matching 3 or more Pokémon in the puzzle area.

The  trailer highlights some of the key gameplay elements. It looks like a fairly simple puzzle game, but many people are of the mantra that the Pokémon brand can make anything better.

Unfortunatley there’s going to be microtransactions, so this feels a little like Nintendo’s answer to Candy Crush but i’d like to get my hands on it to see for myself.

“Optionally, players will be able to keep playing immediately by using items earned in-game through regular gameplay or purchased at Nintendo eShop”
