Another new Pokemon game just got announced for Nintendo 3DS, and it's free

The Band of Thieves & 1000 Pokémon is a new 3DS game that will be given away free to celebrate the launch of new Pokémon movie Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction. It's coming to Japan on June 5.


The new game was announced in the above CoroCoro scan, taken by PokeJungle.

Translating the magazine article, PokeJungle claims that the free game will only be available for a limited time, and comes with a StreetPass feature that enables gamers to recruit more Pokemon to fight against the thieves.

We'll have more as it comes. Meanwhile, why not check out our blog on why Nintendo bringing scannable Pokemon figures to Wii U might be a license to print money.
