The Band of Thieves & 1000 Pokémon is a free eShop game that's heading to the 3DS to tie in with the release of a new Pokémon movie. Unfortunately, it looks like it's only going to be available in Japan.
The game is all about collecting an army of paper Pokémon from Street Pass hits, then using them to battle giant enemies. There'll even be a special gift if you take your 3DS to the cinema when the film is showing.
If you're in Japan you'll be able to grab the game for nothing in July. We'll of course keep you posted about any potential worldwide release, but I wouldn't get your hopes up too high. Or at all, really.
In the meantime, check out the trailer at the top of the article and get all sad and misty eyed about what might have been.
