Pokemon Cafe Mix Revealed for Nintendo Switch, Mobile - Prima Games

Pokemon Cafe Mix Revealed for Nintendo Switch, Mobile

by Liana Ruppert

Hot on the heels of the exciting Pokemon Snap reveal, Nintendo also showed off yet another new Pokemon experience with Pokemon Cafe Mix. Pokemon Cafe Mix is an adorable new puzzler that is dropping for Nintendo Switch and mobile players later this month. The newest adventure is also free-to-play. 

For those that like a good puzzle challenge, Pokemon Cafe Mix aims to give us the adorable pocket monsters we love so much and add a little more strategy into the mix. Since this is a free-to-play game, there will be in-app purchases to be aware of. This is how most free-to-play games work to ensure some revenue is still being generated, but it looks like Nintendo aimed to keep integrity in-tact by adding the following message: “Basic gameplay is available at no cost, optional in-game purchases available.” 

Take a look at the reveal trailer below:

According to Nintendo regarding their latest Pokemon venture, “”As you complete puzzles to build a world-class café, you’ll face obstacles such as sugar cubes, dollops of whipped cream, and tomatoes! Use your puzzle skills to clear them and employ the help of Pokémon’s Café Skills for some extra oomph! In addition to Café Skills, each Pokémon staff member has a specialty. Match a Pokémon’s specialty with the dish or drink you are making for bonuses in puzzles.”

“In addition to recruiting more Pokémon staff members and growing your collection of menu items, the café itself will expand as you play! Getting new tools or having areas added to your café may even draw in more customers. All the action in Pokémon Café Mix unfolds in a playful art style that brings out the cuteness of your Pokémon pals and patrons. It’s time to become a café owner, solve puzzles, and bring joy to Pokémon patrons!”

Nintendo Switch owners can preload the game right now from the Nintendo eShop, as well as Android’s Google Play Store, ahead of the launch planned for June 23. It will also be arriving on iOS devices as well. Are you excited to be in charge of your very own Pokemon cafe? What are your thoughts on the reveals the Pokemon Presentation dropped today?
