Pocket Card Jockey: Ride On! Arrives on Switch

A Nintendo 3DS classic sees new life from Game Freak on the Switch. Pocket Card Jockey: Ride On!, Game Freak’s solitaire and horse racing mash up is available now on the Nintendo Switch. Retailing for ¥1,500, players can once again test their skills on the race track. For those on the fence, a free demo is also available. Below you can find a description of the game via the publisher:

“The Pocket Card Jockey so well-received on Nintendo 3DS™ has galloped its way onto Nintendo Switch™, and it’s more fun than ever! Easy to learn, but filled with surprising depth, you’ll put together the best hands you can to help your horses take home the gold!

Solitaire in this game is played by clearing away cards one number higher or lower than your current card. While the game’s overall concept is the same as before, it includes new rules that allow for more strategic play, as well as racing segments reborn in glorious 3-D.

Whether you’re trying just one race per day, competing with players from all over the world online with the strongest horses you've bred, conquering the biggest races in the world, or just collecting cute little horses, a good time is always in the cards!”

You can see the Japanese and English (North America) trailers for the game below.
