This Sunday, October 23rd, Pokemon fans in the NYC area will get a sneak peek at the first Pokemon game for Nintendo 3DS; Pokemon Rumble Blast! But if you think the only perk is getting to see the game in action, you’re mistaken – fans at the event can actually purchase and take home the video game before it is even released in stores! You’ll be among the first people in the United States to play the game, earning precious training hours before any of your friends can. The event runs from 11am through 6pm at the Nintendo World Store, but supplies are limited so try to get there as early as possible!
The concept of the Nintendo 3DS game follows in the footsteps of Pokemon Rumble, adding “Blast” in the sequel, of course. Known in other locations as Super Pokemon Rumble or Super Pokemon Scramble, and formerly known only as Pokemon 3DS, Pokemon Rumble Blast will officially hit stores in North America on October 24th – sorry European fans, but it appears you’ll have to wait until December.
ABOUT THE GAME
Pokémon Rumble Blast, the first Pokémon game created exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS™ system, is an action-packed Pokémon adventure in 3D! Battle against waves of opponents, connect and play with friends, and collect more than 600 different Toy Pokémon!
As you advance through each stage in Pokémon Rumble Blast, your Toy Pokémon will face dozens of Pokémon at once in fast and furious real-time battles! You’ll also run into giant Boss Pokémon, whose massive size and strength will make them especially tough to defeat—and who can become powerful allies if you’re lucky!
Pokémon Rumble Blast lets you connect wirelessly with your friends in two ways. You can use a local wireless connection to launch cooperative play mode, where you can team up to battle through levels and befriend defeated Toy Pokémon more easily. Or, you can use the StreetPass™ feature of the Nintendo 3DS system to challenge the Toy Pokémon collections of nearby players and to view other players’ Mii™ characters in your game.
You can collect more than 600 kinds of Toy Pokémon in Pokémon Rumble Blast, including those from the recently released Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games. Switch between the various Toy Pokémon you collect to discover the strengths and weaknesses of each Pokémon. Plus, some of the Pokémon you befriend will have special stats and abilities!
Pokémon Rumble Blast will be available for the Nintendo 3DS system starting October 24th!
