Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX is joining the Nintendo Switch lineup on March 6, according to today’s Pokémon Direct stream. A demo of the game is available to download from the eShop now.

This game, as usual, has you turning into a Pokémon and joining another Pokémon of choice on a long journey. Not too much was shown about Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX, but it is a remake of the original Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team games from 2006. The trailer showed remade footage of interacting with key NPC Pokémon like Ninetails and Xatu, just like the original game. New Pokémon and forms that have released since the original games seem like they’ll be included as well.

The last Pokémon Mystery Dungeon title was Super Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, which released on Nov. 20, 2015. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team released on Sept. 18, 2006.

The Pokémon Direct livestream also announced Pokémon Sword and Shield expansions, slated to release in later this year.
