Yet another Pokémon game for smart devices has been announced, hot on the heels of Magikarp Jump. Thanks to Serebii we know this new game, PokéLand, stars the low-poly toys of Pokémon Rumble and seems to feature similar gameplay, while applying a free-to-play model akin to the last 3DS entry, Pokémon Rumble World.

The game is currently undergoing an Alpha Test on Android devices in Japan where players can find 134 different Pokémon, tackle 52 stages and climb the Champion Tower to 15 floors. Also noteworthy is that the game has a Nintendo Account connection, meaning your Mii can pop up.

In terms of the free-to-play mechanics, players have to spend in-game diamonds to unlock new islands, while a special detector used to find Pokémon has to recharge for 30 minutes after use.

A release window for the game has yet to be announced, but the alpha ends on June 9th at which point all data will be deleted. We’ll be sure to bring more coverage in the future.
