Nintendo’s Free-to-play title has now been downloaded more than 2.5 million times since it launched on 3DS.

pokemon-shuffle-sc1Thanks to the 3DS system’s ability to place icons for new trials directly on to the console for gamers to try out, where they then just need to click to download should they want to play, the game has seen massive numbers of users downloading the title in the last 3 weeks.

Pokémon Shuffle is a typical Match 3 game with a Pokémon twist, adding different types and the ability to catch new Pokémon when you successfully complete a mission.  The free-to-play model works by restricting game type to 5 games per session and allowing users to pay for more or add items to help win games via microtransactions.
