Pokemon Rumble U Releasing Outside of Japan Next Month

By   /   3 years ago

The previously Japan exclusive Pokémon Rumble U has finally been formally confirmed to be coming to other countries, with release dates announced and everything. The game has been doing quite well in Japan for the past few months, where it released in April. International customers have been dying to know if and when the game will be launched outside of Japan, and they won’t have to wait much longer.

Pokémon Rumble U finally breaks out of Japan into the international scene on August 15 when it will debut in Europe, with a North American release following it on August 29. It will be available on the Wii U eShop for $18, and won’t be seeing a retail release (so you’d best have an internet connection if you want to play).

Akin to Skylanders, you’ll be able to buy some physical toys from retail stores which will interact with the game and scan into it. There are 18 in total, and they’re all priced at $4 a piece. You’ll be able to scan them into Rumble U through the Wii U GamePad, and you can store in-game data on them, meaning that you can use stats from your own game on another friend’s console.

All 649 pocket monsters make an appearance in this game, and up to 100 pokémon can be featured in one battle at any one time. There’s 15 stages to duke it out on, offering something for just about every type of gamer.
