    The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced on Wednesday that the North American release of Pokémon Rumble U (Pokémon Scramble U in Japan) for the Wii U console will be available via the Nintendo eShop on August 29 for US$17.99.

    Nintendo describes the story:
    In the Wii U game, players are able to control many toy-like Pokémon to battle; at times, players will be able to control 100 in battles. The game will allow players to choose from the complete roster of 649 Pokémon from generations I to V. When players approach capsules that enemy Pokémon drop after defeat, they are able to catch the Pokémon inside and add it to their list of friends. In multiplayer mode, up to four players can play together. Different modes of multiplayer include teaming up with a friend, or fighting to defeat the largest amount of the other player's Pokémon.

    The game will use the Wii U's Near Field Communication (NFC) and Toy Pokémon figures will be available in GameStop stores. When a player buys a physical figure and puts it on top of the Wii U's GamePad, the pad's built-in NFC sensor will detect the figure and put the same character in the game itself. A random assortment of 18 Pokémon Rumble U NFC Figures, including Pikachu, Victini, Deoxys (Normal Form), Eevee, and Genesect will be available for US$3.99 each.
