Pokemon Rumble U Japanese release date set

Purchase extra Pokemon at your local retail store.

Pokemon Rumble U will launch as a download-only Wii U title for 1,800 yen in Japan on April 24, the latest issue of CoroCoro Comic reveals.

Additionally, the mag reveals that it is a NFC (near field communications) title that works in conjunction with a set of “Pokemon Rumble U NFC Figures” (think Skylanders). Six regular and one special figure will go on sale on April 24 for 200 yen each. Not only can these figures bring the Pokemon into the game, but they can also save your battle information.

Thanks, Game Jouhou.
