On the 3DS this title saw close to five million downloads and it’s expected that it will continue its streak over on iOS and Android, two platforms that power devices that are far greater in number out there than the 3DS handheld.

So far, Nintendo is only confirming that Pokémon Shuffle is headed to the iTunes Store and Google Play Store “soon”.
A new trailer was released today highlighting the mobile version of Pokemon Shuffle, which you can view for yourself below.
