Pokémon Link: Battle! Announced for 3DS eShop, releasing 13 March in UK

Last night, during a surprise Nintendo Direct webcast, Nintendo revealed a new spin-off Pokémon game that will soon be releasing in the UK.

Pokémon Link: Battle!, known in America as Pokémon Battle Trozei, is the 3DS sequel to the DS game Pokémon Link/Trozei, which featured match-three style puzzles using Pokémon faces. Battle! sees you doing the same, playing out match-3 style puzzles with Pokémon – but this time, the puzzles take the form of Pokémon battles that progress based on your performance in the game. Burst the right number and type of tiny Pokémon heads and you deal damage to your opponent.

Pokémon Link: Battle! will feature all known Pokémon from Generations 1 through to the present day Gen 6; and all of them will be "befriendable". The game will launch on the 3DS eShop in the UK on 13 March.
