Looks like this is launching in Europe on August 15th and in North America on August 29th. In the US Gamestop will be selling the NFC figurines in limited quantities. Luckily there is no Jolteon yet, so my wallet remains safe.

Yes because they put good use for the money they made with the Wii and DS by making the WiiU.

Now that Nintendo have found a way to print money using this console I think its fair to say they're gonna win that inter of the console war. I just hope they use that extra money for the benefit of us Nintendo lovers.

Thanks for the Nintendo merchandise history lesson Slash.

Oh man, Nintendo is making this NFC compatible with actual pokemon figurines, Skylanders style. My 10 year old mind would be blown.
I momentarily missed the "mind" part and wondered why you had suddenly become a parent.

But seriously, if there was any Nintendo series that was going to use NFC, it was Pokémon. I won't be buying any, but yeah, if I was ten I would be all over this. Maybe.

That's too many Pokemon to play at once. If this is not for the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS, it will likely freeze.
Too bad it doesn't say Wii U in the title or anything.

Yea, and it sounds like they'll be handling them the right way. 200 yen is $2.08 so thats pretty cheap assuming they keep it around that price.

I think the game'll be worth it if was like the Wii one, a cheap and downloadable game.

I met the price point man. It's almost as bad as the Imagine series being sold full price for what looked like was made by a pokemon fan in a back alley with the help of a hobo computer for $5 being charged almost full price.
Honestly, you are pretty much dead on about that point. The first game should have been 10$ MAX, and the DS port in the 15-20 range.

But hey, what non-Steam games AREN'T overpriced these days? It felt sad to pick up the 3rd port of Ocarina of Time for 40$, but I guess we can't really influence their pricing...

Its a simple beatumup, just on a massive and adorable scale. You are constantly collecting new and more powerful pokemon with different attacks to use with varying effects. I honestly don't see what's not to like, unless you just don't like the genre.

Pokemon Rumble was disgusting on the Wii, probably entertained me for all of 5 minutes. Thank God I didn't buy it.
I would just like to point out that on my Wii I have a 100% completed save file for this game. How was this achieved? My younger sister and her friend played it (ages 8 and 9 respectively). I'm fairly certain that they're gearing these games towards younger audiences, which may likely be a large factor of why they're keeping the Pokemon Ranch models.

I hope that this somewhat affects your views on it being repulsive or disgusting, although I will instantly admit the gameplay is incredibly repetitive. Look at it in the eyes of a young child mashing the B button as their favorite Pokemon just mowing down an army of 100 other Pokemon.

That's gotta have some appeal (to their supposed target audience).

100 Pokemon battling at once in the newly announced Pokemon

Rumble D:
Jesus. Imagine battling in the mainline games with 100 Pokémon at the time. Would it be a free for all or 50 vs 50? Would it mean trainers will carry around a party of even more Pokémon? How would you even begin to develop a strategy for something like that? So many unanswered questions for this misreading.
