The Pokemon roguelike is being updated and remade and will release on the Nintendo Switch on March 6 as Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX. The series is developed by Chunsoft, published by the Pokemon Company and distributed by Nintendo

“It’s been about 15 years since  Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team were released for the Nintendo DS and Gameboy Advance systems in Japan, but now they will gain a new life as a Nintendo Switch title,” said Tsunekazu Ishihara, president and CEO of the Pokemon Company.

The game features the player taking the form of a Pikachu and is tasked with saving the world with the assistance of other Pokemon.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX may release in March, but Nintendo announced that a demo of the game will be released later today. Nintendo said during the Direct that game data will carry over from the demo.
