Pokemon Rumble U comes to the Wii U eShop on August 29

pokemonrumbleu-logoNintendo has announced that Pokemon Rumble U, and an accompanying array of NFC-enabled figures, will be available on August 29. The game, which has been priced at $17.99, will be downloadable from the Wii U eShop. The figures, which are sold in “concealed capsules,” will be available exclusively at GameStop stores.

Pokemon Rumble U is the tale of a great adventure featuring Toy Pokemon, beginning when a delivery of Toy Pokemon is swept down a river and washes up on a strange riverbank. Our bewildered Pokemon heroes set out to find their way back to the Toy Pokemon Shop. Along the way they discover all is not right. Players will learn why some of the Toy Pokemon are fighting each other, and what the enemy Pokemon are plotting.

Pokemon Rumble U’s players (up to four simultaneously) will travel through a variety of Pokemon locales including Sparkly Playland, Mysterious Forest, and Blue Sky Park as they battle all 649 Pokemon and giant bosses.

Pokemon Scramble U set for eShop release in Japan this Spring


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).
