Nintendo launched a Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX demo for the Switch yesterday, and the remake opens with a persona quiz. Depending in your solutions, the sport will assign you a selected playable monster who is meant to symbolize the true you.
This is already a very powerful take a look at I’ve ever taken.
Usually, once I decide a Pokémon starter, I’m going for the fire-types. Surprise, I’m an Aries. But on this case, I didn’t need to sport Mystery Dungeon into giving me a selected end result simply because I believed I ought to be a selected creature. I needed to reply in truth, and see what the sport would decide as my pocket monster essence. This, I reasoned, can be a real prognosis of my character. And perhaps my price as a human being.
Some of the questions you get are fairly commonplace fare for this form of factor, meant to gauge what kind of individual you’re primarily based in your decision-making abilities. I used to be requested, for instance, if I preferred to struggle. (Yes, however I’m not happy with it.) Then there have been weird questions like this one:
As you possibly can see, the entire thing is pure science, and thus unquestionable.
Once the quiz is over, the sport offers you suggestions, a few of which comes throughout as a hilarious neg. The sport advised me I used to be happy-go-lucky and cheerful, however that typically I get “carried away and say things that get [me] in trouble.” True, true. And then the sport gave me some recommendation:
Honestly, truthful, but additionally, can I LIVE, Pokémon?
The sport adopted this up with its last verdict: I’m a Squirtle, the traditional water-type starter from the unique video games. I wasn’t anticipating this reply, as I’ve by no means felt significantly aligned with the free-flowing aspect.
But I’m into it! When I believe Squirtle, I consider the mega-cool Squirtle Squad from the anime. Squirtles surf, man. They’re chill. I really like Squirtle!
Despite pondering of myself as a fiery individual most of my life, by some means this end result makes me really feel seen. I’m getting older, and studying the best way to be form to myself. The previous couple of years have been an ongoing course of in studying the best way to decide my battles and figuring out when to let go. Maybe water is extra applicable for that? Or perhaps I’m placing manner an excessive amount of inventory right into a quiz about tiny combating monsters and my relationship with them? But it’s in all probability the previous.
I’m additionally having a whole lot of enjoyable seeing what outcomes my buddies and colleagues are getting. Nearly everyone seems to be strolling out of it with monsters they didn’t count on — or higher but, with extraordinarily humorous screenshots of Mystery Dungeon being imply to them.

Plus, the sport additionally offers you a second computer-controlled buddy who joins your journey as properly. I’ve spent an hour with the demo, and it’s a whole lot of enjoyable up to now. Go attempt it out for those who want one thing new to play this weekend, particularly on condition that your progress will be transferred over to the total sport later this yr.
