New Dr. Mario launched for 3DS in Japan

Available for 880 yen via the Nintendo eShop.

Dr. Mario Gyakuten

Nintendo announced Dr. Mario Gyakuten! Tokkouyaku & Saikin Bokumetsu (Dr. Mario Reversal! Special Medicine & Germ Buster) for 3DS during its Nintendo Direct this morning.

The game, out today in Japan via the Nintendo eShop for 880 yen, offers Dr. Mario, Dr. Luigi, and touch-based Germ Buster modes. The former two modes offer new “Special Medicine” items that prove helpful in a pinch (i.e. too many capsules have stacked up). A new item is provided each time the gauge on the right side of the screen builds up. Players can also battle friends online and locally via download play.
