Pokémon Rumble U launched yesterday on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U, and GAME bring NFC figures to use in the game.
For the first time on the Wii U, Pokémon Rumble U NFC (Near-Field Communication) Figures based on Toy Pokémon will be available to link up with Pokémon Rumble U via the Wii U GamePad. The Pokémon that show up in Pokémon Rumble U when you scan a Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figure using the GamePad can grow stronger by using Coins that you receive in-game. Players can change moves or add a Special Trait to their Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figure so it can become one of their most dependable allies in the game. The in-game data can even be saved in the Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figure so you can take your customised character wherever you go.
Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figures—including Pikachu, Mewtwo, Victini, Darkrai, Deoxys (Normal Forme), Eevee, and Lucario—will be available in specially created dispensers exclusively at GAME. A Special Edition pack will also be on sale at GAME and will contain a Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figure, plus an exclusive, limited edition Black Kyurem or White Kyurem Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figure, a double-sided poster, and a download code for the game, redeemable on the Nintendo eShop.
It will also be possible to purchase a stand-alone download code at GAME for the Pokémon Rumble U game, which can be redeemed on the Nintendo eShop.
Pokémon Rumble U is the tale of a great adventure featuring all 649 Pokémon revealed through Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2. With hundreds of moves to master, Pokémon Rumble U will provide hours of entertainment for new and existing Pokémon fans alike.
