Western fans can now enjoy Pichu Bros. for the Pokemon Mini console in English thanks to the hard work of fan translators.
For those who may be unaware, the Pokemon Mini is Nintendo’s smallest game console. It was released in 2001 and focused entirely around the Pokemon brand. A total of 10 games were released for the system, of which 5 were never released outside of Japan. Pichu Bros. is the last of those five games to receive a fan translation, meaning that for the first time all 10 Pokemon Mini games are now available to play in English.
Pichu Bros. itself is a collection of six different mini games, based around the titular characters and their friends. The minigames include a skateboarding course with Pichu and a “Catch-the-Bone” game with Cubone.
