Strategy and battling game Pokémon Masters is now open for pre-registration, DeNA and The Pokémon Company jointly announced on Tuesday.
The new mobile game will see three-on-three real-time battles against AI enemies. It will take place in a new location in the Pokémon universe: the island of Pasio. Very much like the other games of the franchise, in Pasio the player will be presented with the challenge of winning the Pokémon Masters League.
Pokémon Masters will be available across several countries both on iOS and Android devices as a free-to-start game with in-app purchases. If you’re an Android user, the minimum requirements for the game to work on your device are a system version of Android updated to 7.0 or later, and at least 2GB of RAM.
People who pre-register will be able to play it by the end of Summer 2019. At the time of release, the game will be available in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Japanese, Korean and Traditional Chinese.
Together with the pre-registration announcement, the Pokémon Masters’ YouTube channel has uploaded several in-game videos which show viewers the game’s dynamics and different aspects of gameplay, from the battle system and how to sync pairs, to how to train your Pokémon and even a game overview which you can see down below.
DeNA and The Pokémon Company also revealed that Pokémon Masters is launching a preview version of the game today on supported devices in Singapore and soon in Canada. Players in these countries will be able to access the game before everyone else and without pre-registering. They will also be able to retain their game progress and continue playing on the official version of the game when it comes out.
