Pokemon Shuffle

The iOS and Android versions of eShop puzzler Pokemon Shuffle are now available in Japan - and the iOS edition is all in English, so even gaijin like you can get involved, provided you make a new iTunes account.

The game is all about shifting around Pokemon-shaped gems to make matches of three or more. This causes you to attack enemy critters, and potentially catch them and add them to your team.

It's free to play, with an energy system, paid-for power-ups, and premium Pokeballs.

This is not Nintendo's entry in the world of mobile, however. The Pokemon Company isn't fully owned by Nintendo and has made plenty of iOS apps already. Nintendo's first mobile game with DeNA will be announced this year.

We'll let you know when Pokemon Shuffle Mobile is available to download worldwide.
