Pokémon Rumble U brings the fun of the Pokémon Rumble series to Nintendo’s Wii U system. Intuitive controls let you easily play through your quest solo or with friends.
Pokémon Rumble U features every known Pokémon through Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2, and hundreds of moves to master in battle. And the more Pokémon you defeat, the more Pokémon you can befriend, each with different strengths and weaknesses that will shape your battle strategy.
The Pokémon Rumble U adventure begins when some Toy Pokémon get swept down a river and wash up along a strange riverbank. You must guide the Toy Pokémon back to the shop where the mishap began while battling other Toy Pokémon along the way!
Up to four players can enjoy multiplayer battles, featuring cooperative play to defeat the strongest enemies with teamwork, or friendly competitions to see who can defeat and befriend the most Pokémon.
For the first time on the Wii U, special Pokémon Rumble U Near Field Communication (NFC) Figures will be available to link up with Pokémon Rumble U via the Wii U GamePad. Using Near Field Communication, these Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figures will show up inside your game. These Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figures are optional and will be sold exclusively at participating GameStop stores starting August 29th.
Pokémon Rumble U will be available in North America on August 29th, 2013, via the Nintendo eShop.
