SpotPass! Survival Mode! Other Stuff!
Pokémon Shuffle is one of multiple 'mon free-to-start downloads on 3DS, and has also been released on mobile. A major update to version 1.3.0 for the 3DS iteration has now, seemingly, brought it into line with features that have previously rolled out on smart devices. First of all, if you're jumping into the...
Nintendo and Genius Sonority are slow to react
Pokémon Shuffle has been a target for hacks in the past, with the free-to-play download previously being targeted by those seeking to obtain in-game items without buying them. It's part of the 'game' that data hackers infiltrate titles, with Nintendo and other developers then regularly issuing updates...
More hearts, 'Super Catch' mode and woe for cheats
Pokémon Shuffle, the seemingly endless free-to-play match-three title on 3DS, has had plenty of updates, yet version 1.2 is now available and offers one of the most notable shake-ups to date. When trying to check-in you'll be told of a mandatory update, and in Europe the 686 block size suggests...
Keep on shuffling
We don't know how much money Pokémon Shuffle is earning for Nintendo, but it's certainly tempting a decent number of 3DS owners to try it out for free. The tile-matching game has now reached 4 million downloads, which certainly isn't a number to be sniffed at. The game is celebrating through new events - on the one hand it's...
Pedra Valley also added to main stages
Pokémon Shuffle continues to expand with the launch of its latest challenge featuring the legendary Regirock Pokémon and the addition of ten new main stages taking the total main stage count from 180 to 190. The Regirock Great Challenge gives players the opportunity to take on the powerful foe over 30 moves...
The expedition is on!
Nintendo’s strong support for its free-to-play 3DS eShop title, Pokémon Shuffle, continues with the latest in-game event now live. Pokémon Safari draws inspiration from the main game series featuring Safari Zones, and more recently Friend Safari, which has players attempting to catch a random selection of Pokémon. Each...
Promising signs for the micro-transaction eShop title?
Nintendo has dabbled in the free-to-play market for some time now, and their latest attempt testing the micro-transaction based waters, Pokémon Shuffle, may be their most popular creation yet, with a timely announcement that the title has clocked up more than 2.5 million downloads. The...
Is anyone buying Jewels, though?
Pokémon Shuffle is Nintendo's most notable attempt to-date at utilising microtransactions - unlike previous free-to-play downloads it doesn't unlock content for fixed amounts, but uses an in-game economy that encourages you to pay-to-play on a continual basis. It's had a mixed response, and our early reaction was...
Pokémon Shuffle has endured a mixed reception among vocal Nintendo fans since its recent release on the 3DS eShop; the free-to-play title is quite heavily reliant on microtransactions, which can be a sticking point for a number of gamers. That monetisation is being bypassed by some, however, with hackers utilising a loophole...
Tom Whitehead scratches his head, waits 30 minutes, then scratches it again
Microtransactions. It's a grubby phrase in the eyes of many, mainly because it represents a concept that thrives on being small and inoffensive, yet has the capability to lead to extravagant costs or to simply wreck a game's momentum. It's worse than 'free-to-play', as a...
