Free, Downloadable Pokemon StreetPass Game Coming to 3DS

band of thieves and 1000 pokemon

Band of Thieves and 1000 Pokemon is a downloadable title in which you collect Pokemon from nearby users via StreetPass.

StreetPass was one of the hidden gems of the 3DS, with the feature proving to be so popular that Nintendo actually produced a full suite of games for it. Now, it looks like a Pokemon-themed StreetPass game is heading to the 3DS, and better yet, it will be completely free. Band of Thieves and 1000 Pokemon, revealed by Serebii in the latest edition of CoroCoro magazine will be a downloadable title in which you collect Pokemon from nearby users via StreetPass, and then take them into battle.

Not too much is known about the game, just what we've managed to gather from the single Japanese magazine scan you'll see to the left. Basically, you'll collect "sticker" versions of Pokemon, and have them battle... something, possibly akin to how the Find Mii StreetPass title currently works. You'll also be able to get a special Pikachu for your Pokemon X and Y game when you download it.

We do know that oddly-titled Band of Thieves and 1000 Pokemon is due to launch in Japan ahead of the upcoming 17th Pokemon movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction, which gets a Japanese cinema release in July. There's currently no word on a Western release, but considering the fact that we're getting Pokemon Art Academy, it seems fairly likely.

Sounds like a fun little game. This combined with Pkm Art Academy and the Hoenn remakes means this year will be fun for Pokemon fans!

Also a free Pikachu will be cool for X & Y

Yea, it seems like a great time to be a pokemon fan at the moment.

though to the game, I'm happy it's free. The full-suite costs 14,99 in euros over here, a bit too steep when I first took note of it.

I'd be more happy with a free Diancie to be honest.

OT: Neat, hopefully this game can be fun.

I would assume that will happen soon. The Japanese Diancie will be out next month for the movie release.

They still haven't talked about the distribution for that, have they? It'll probably coincide with the release of the upcoming film with Diancie. I'm also wondering about the other two legendaries people managed to datamine.

Anyway, sounds like a neat little spinoff. Streetpass has been a feature I've found to be able to add new stuff to a game, especially RPGs with titles like Bravely Default, Etrian Odyssey, and Shin Megami Tensei.
