Free-to-Play Pokémon Shuffle Set to Release Soon

Pokémon Shuffle is a download-only game and the game appears to follow the free-to-play model of many mobile games, and will seemingly have micro-transactions, from what is said in the game description.

“You’ll be able to enjoy virtually all the features of Pokémon Shuffle without paying any money,” states the release. “There is a limit to how many stages you can play through without taking a break. This number will be replenished with time, but you can also purchase items in the game’s shop that will enable you to continue playing immediately, if you choose.”
