Pokémon Ranger Sequel Coming to North America

During their E3 Press Conference today, Nintendo announced Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia for the Nintendo DS. Shadows of Almia will be the first game in the Pokémon Ranger series to feature Pokémon from Pokémon Diamond/Pearl.

Players will take on the role of a student Pokémon Ranger (with the choice of playing as a boy or girl). Through a series of missions and quests they can ascend the ranger ranks while, of course, capturing a variety of cute critters. In Ranger, capturing Pokémon is done using the stylus to draw circles around the Pokémon on the touch screen. During the course of the game players will receive power-ups that will give them new abilities. Once captured, Pokémon will accompany the player until their powers are used to solve a puzzles or to capture other wild Pokémon. Using captured Pokémons’ abilities to clear obstacles and complete missions is key to progressing through the game and ultimately claiming the rank of Top Ranger.

Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia is slated for release on Nov 10. It is rated “E” for Everyone.
