As you level up, upgrade your warriors' skills to learn mighty attacks. For the first time, Red the bandit and Monster Arena owner Morrie join your party as playable characters! There are also new outfits that change each hero's look, which makes for some perfect in-game photo ops. You can share the pictures you take via StreetPass™ encounters. Plus, you can form and battle teams of monsters to earn rewards in the Monster Arena. Now the must-play version of this classic game is exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems.
