Nintendo has announced the first Pokemon game for the Wii U and, sadly, it’s not the high definition open-world RPG everyone was hoping for. Instead, it’s a new entry in the Pokemon Scramble series of melee brawlers.
Pokemon Scramble U will include all 649 Pocket Monsters, along with a four-player multiplayer mode and the ability to display over 100 Pokemon on screen at once. That is a truly royal rumble.
Right now, the game will be available on the Japanese eShop this Spring. An American release hasn’t been announced yet, but come on, it’s Pokemon (and the first two games in the series were released in America as Pokemon Rumble and Pokemon Rumble Blast).
