Pokémon Rumble World Announced in Nintendo Direct

During today’s Nintendo Direct, a somewhat expected new Pokemon game was revealed, Pokémon Rumble World, for the Nintendo 3DS! Pokémon Rumble World will be a successor to 2013’s Pokémon Rumble U, this time featuring all 719 Pokémon as obtainable toys. This game will be available in the Nintendo 3DS eShop on April 8th for free, but will have in-app purchases for “Poké Diamonds,” which can be used to travel to in-game locations faster. Poké Diamonds will also be obtainable through StreetPass and completing in-game events.

The game itself will feature Pokémon toys that Mega Evolve, a first to the Pokémon Rumble series. As players befriend more Pokémon, their “Adventurer Rank” will go up, allowing them to discover stages featuring stronger Pokémon. Players’ Mii characters will also be present in the game. Traveling to different locations will be done via a hot air balloon, which can be summoned using Poké Diamonds. Fortunately, Nintendo has revealed that Poké Diamonds allow for “quicker progress through the game,” and are not a necessity for continuing on, unlike Pokémon Shuffle.

So, what do you guys think about this new installment to the Pokémon Rumble series? Had you expected something different, perhaps better, from this title? Will you be downloading it on its release date? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. Seriously, ANOTHER F2P Pokemon game.
    This is stupid, if you want to make a Pokemon spin-off then make something good like an another ranger or mystery dungeon, What’s the point of this game? We already have a Rumble game on 3ds, why make another one with Shitty microtransactions.
    Give us ranger,Mystery dungeon or news on that detective game. Why are you relegating pokemon to the likes of crappy F2P mobile games

  2. This game will be OK, I guess, but I had rather hoped for a free Pokémon SNAP-game for 3DS instead…!
    Oh well, this game and Pokémon Shuffle will probably keep us occupied until the next Gen, hopefully, appears later this year or at the beginning of 2016!
