Pocket Card Jockey

One of the rather strange announcements in the last Nintendo Direct was that Pocket Card Jockey would be coming to the 3DS eShop. The latest spin-off title from Game Freak aims to blend solitaire and horse racing together to make an experience unlike any other. It was recently announced that the game would be hitting Europe on 5th May, and it's now been confirmed that it'll be landing in North America on the same date.

The announcement came via a video posted to Nintendo's YouTube channel that recaps the footage from the game's initial announcement, followed by the announcement of the release date and a QR code to get the demo on the eShop. The video covers all the key elements of the game, and showcases plenty of footage of this interesting project. Check it out below:
