Pokémon Rumble U descends on North America


Alongside confirmation of a European release earlier today, Nintendo have confirmed a North American date for Pokémon Rumble U.

It’ll see release for Wii U through the Nintendo eShop on August 29th, and, unlike their earlier announcement, will see optional Pokémon Rumble U NFC figure sets launch alongside the game at participating GameStop stores.

These use the Wii U GamePad’s Near Field Connection (NFC) capability to communicate with the system, in a method similar to that seen within Activision’s globally popular Skylanders series.
