Pokemon Bank returns to the Japanese eShop

News 3DS Nintendo


Just when you thought you would have to wait even longer to withdraw those old teams, a glimmer of hope is on the horizon. Today, Nintendo relaunched Pokemon Bank on the 3DS eShop for Japan, after pulling the service due to heavy traffic in late December.

As many of you know, Bank allows you to store and withdraw Pokemon between older Nintendo DS releases, eventually carrying them over to Pokemon X & Y. I still have yet to fill up by boxes in the aforementioned, but for the low $5.00 subscription fee, it will definitely be a day one purchase here. North America and Europe, be ready – as this relaunch signals that we are in fact next in line to get this handy Poketool on our eShop!
