Pokémon developer Game Freak bringing horse racing-Solitaire mash-up to 3DS

Pocket Card Jockey is a unusual but inspired combination

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Game Freak is bringing Pocket Card Jockey, which combines card game Solitaire with the thrill of horse racing, to Nintendo 3DS in May.

Pocket Card Jockey will feature a "fast-paced, simplified version of solitaire," according to Nintendo, that will propel the horse and jockey through races. "It's all about leveling up the horse through strategic positioning and placement on the track," Nintendo said in an official announcement following today's Nintendo Direct presentation.

Players will be able to collect trophies and attract sponsors as they progress.
