The Pokemon Company has announced Pokemon Cafe Mix, a free-to-start puzzle game coming to Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
Revealed as part of Pokemon Presents, in Pokemon Cafe Mix, you are put in the role of the owner of a cafe for Pokemon. Puzzles are based around preparing drinks and dishes for your Pokemon customers, with a mechanic based on swirling Pokemon icons around and attempting to link matching ones together. There are a variety of different puzzles, but all appear to be rooted in the same icon-swirling mechanic.
As well as being regular customers that you can befriend, Pokemon can also join your staff, where they will be able to aid with puzzle solving by using special abilities. And as time goes by, you’ll also be able to extend your cafe with new areas.
