Nintendo and The Pok√©mon Company have announced the upcoming Wii U Nintendo eShop release of Pok√©mon Rumble U.
Pok√©mon Rumble U is the tale of the Toy Pok√©mon’s great adventure. After a mishap in the Toy Pok√©mon Shop, a few Pok√©mon capsules are swept down a river and washed up on a strange riverbank. Our heroes set out to find their way back to the Toy Pok√©mon Shop. Along the way our heroes discover all is not right: Can you help our friends discover why some of the Toy Pok√©mon are fighting each other, and what the enemy Pok√©mon are plotting? Featuring every one of the 649 Pok√©mon that have been discovered as far as Pok√©mon Black Version 2, and Pok√©mon White Version 2, with hundreds of moves to master Pok√©mon Rumble U will provide hours of entertainment for fans. Pick up and play controls will allow players to jump in and play solo, or with friends, as they accompany our intrepid heroes on their quest to return to the Pok√©mon Toy Shop. They will pass through a variety of fun-packed locations, like Sparkly Playland, Mysterious Forest, and Blue Sky Park. In Pok√©mon Rumble U the more Pok√©mon you defeat the more Pok√©mon you can befriend: different types of Pok√©mon have different strengths and weaknesses, so strategies can be developed to exploit these factors in battle. Other surprises and pick-ups will crop up along the way – which will help strengthen the team, restore health, or cause damage to the opponents. Pikachu and friends will encounter Giant Bosses, and players can even use the Wii U GamePad to set off Touch Bombs when faced with many Pok√©mon in battle at once! Up to four players can enjoy multiplayer battles: with cooperative play to defeat the strongest enemies with team work, or head to head battles to see who can defeat and befriend the most Pok√©mon in one go. The game launches on August 15th exclusively for download via the Nintendo e-Shop on Wii U.
