Pokemon Rumble U Makes its Way to North America This August


pokemon-rumble-u-2

The North American release date for the upcoming Pokemon Rumble U has been revealed, with its eShop debut being pencilled in for August 29, 2013. In spite of not being the first installment in the Pokemon Rumble franchise, Rumble U is still being watched closely by fans as it is the first time that Pokemon will take advantage of NFC (Near Field Communication) figurines, which takes its cue from the popular Skylanders videogame and toy franchise.

In Pokemon Rumble U, gamers can purchase NFC figurines exclusively via Gamestop in individual blind boxes for $3.99 each. The initial 18 figures at launch will include Pikachu, Victini, Deoxys, Eevee, and Genesect. Similar to Skylanders, “scanning” the NFC figurines will let you unlock the Pokemon in-game.

The base game itself will cost $17.99 on the eShop.
