Scanner add-on reads the same collectible Tretta tiles used in arcade machines

Pokémon Tretta, the Japanese arcade game that has player battling with collectible game tiles, is heading to the Nintendo 3DS via a special scanner add-on. The Pokémon Tretta Lab for Nintendo 3DS scanner peripheral can read data off the same Tretta tiles that the full-sized arcade machines use. (The scanner comes with two trays so it can attach to either the 3DS or its larger 3DS XL/LL variant.)

To use the scanner, the user downloads the Main System software that offers three modes: the Tretta Analyzer for displaying a Tretta's stats, the Type Checker for learning more about other Pokémon in the same type, and Auto Battle — the exclusive 3DS battle mode for single-player battles or battles between two different Tretta tiles.

The Pokémon Tretta Lab for Nintendo 3DS will go on sale in Japan on August 10 for 3,800 yen (about US$38). It will include 3 Tretta with Mewtwo, Eevee, and Lucario as a tie-in to this summer's Pokémon the Movie: ExtremeSpeed Genesect and "Pikachu to Evee Friends" films. While supplies last, people who buy the first sets will also receive a Pichu Tretta tile. 4Gamer posted more images of the entire setup.
