    It has just been announced that a remake of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team will be coming out. Little is known about this new remake right now since they just announced it, but it will feature a new art style that gives the game sort of a rustic feel to it, like the game was sketched out and then painted. Mega Evolutions are also being added to the game, and a brief shot of a Lucario shows that at least some newer Pokémon will be available as well.
    Who's hyped for this? I know I am. I've never been that big of a Mystery Dungeon fan, but I have played Red Rescue Team before and I'm looking forward to this new remake.

    Welp. Rip my Red Rescue Team LP.

    But seriously, I am actually happy with Gen VIII news for once. This looks like it could be a lot of fun, and a better way to play the OG PMD Games.

    I loved playing RRT on the GBA, so I'm intrigued by what this remake brings to the table.

    YESSSSSSS!

    I'm wondering if the Lucario in the preview could be THE Lucario, the greatest Rescue Team leader that Alakazam idolized? It looks like Lucario is part of the team in the preview, but the other two characters are still starter Pokémon. It's possible if they didn't add in all of the new Pokémon, that they might have at least added in Lucario as part of a special mission post-game, similar to them adding Sky Peak in Explorers of Sky.

    I love the art style too. Maybe I'm a bit biased, but it looks good so far. I wonder if they'll add in the unused soundtracks into this one. That would be a nice touch. I'm guessing they'll probably make it easier than the originals, since the originals were borderline unfair at certain points and they definitely streamlined it later on, but I hope they don't simplify it too much.

    Ah, right in the childhood. :'3

    Mystery Dungeon is my favorite Pokémon spin-off, so seeing the original games coming to the Switch as an HD remake has me super excited. I played Red Rescue Team a long time ago for the Gameboy Advance, and started off as a Totodile with a Cyndaquil partner.

    I remember long ago the original games were advertised on Nintendo Power Magazine (I was subscribed to it for a month once) with a manga series about a human turning into a Torchic and his partner Mudkip. Never saw the last issue of it, but I'm glad I didn't so I wasn't spoiled to the ending of the game. There were indeed tears.

    And now it's coming back, and I can't wait to get the band back together. I'm so hyped!

    The ending of that manga was actually different from the ending of the game, so I don't think you would have missed out on too much. But yes, the hype!

    I got to say, that I have mixed feelings for this game. I'll start off by saying that I have no nostalgia glasses for Red rescue team. Yes I played it when I was young but I didn't ever finish it because I was bad. When I got older and better, I finished up Rayquaza before getting the HM for dive needed to complete the story. I went on a secondary mission for a little extra money, was told to escort a Rhydon through a water level, lost my entire inventory, rage quite and never picked it up since. My mixed feelings for it though do not come from my rather troubled history with the game.

    I'm troubled with this game because I play games like this for an interesting story. Rescue team definitely has an interesting story no doubt, but I don't enjoy re watching the same story and honestly, there's nothing else riding on the game other than story. I've always found the dungeon crawling to be less enjoyable than the main series and with the story being the same, I have less of a reason to pick it up.

    Do I like the PMD series? Yes I adore it. Do I think the red rescue team needs a remake? Absolutely! Its probably the one that needs the most work. Am I worried for the series, yes absolutely. PMD had the gates series which completely failed in sales. It had a lot of really good ideas that made the core game play a lot more fun despite its lack luster performance. However in the new MD game, they completely reverted to the original style of Red rescue team and it was a hit. Now their making a remake of the original. Its got me worried that the series wont evolve anymore or it will take an extremely long time for them to do so. From what I see, what made gates fail and New MD succeed is the story and I don't think Nintendo sees it that way.

    Long winded, but I've got mixed feelings. I'm looking at the series as a whole and I'm getting bad vibes. I hope they are unfounded and PMD will continue to be a successful, but this is not the first time I've seen this happen in a Pokémon game.

    I don't particularly care for PMD anymore but is honestly nice to see them remake a spin-off for once instead of a main series game. I remember playing the OG Red Rescue Team, I played it for hours on end, don't remember if I ever recruited any of the good mons tho but whatever. Is just nice to see something else than a main game getting a remake.
