You knew it would happen didn’t you? The latest issue of Coro Coro (via Serebii) has revealed that alongside Pokemon Rumble U, Nintendo will be releasing to Pokemon Center stores in Japan NFC enabled Pokemon Figures. These figures will allow the character it represents to be transported into the game and their abilities used.

The figures will be cheap just a mere 200 Yen ($2) each. The figures retain the style of the ‘toy’ like Pokemon that already in Pokemon Rumble.

There are six standard figurine and one special figurine. Like Skylander toys, the Pokemon figurines are about to be trained and you can save your battle record to them.

Pokemon Rumble U is out in Japan on April 24th for 1800 Yen.

We’ll have more information about these NFC figures as it becomes available.

    hmmmm i wonder we will get little figurines down here???

  2. Jesse Powell

    I’m surprised they aren’t making a large rang of figures.They’d make a bucket-load!

  3. indevelopment

    they had better make a good game to go with it, a bit more depth and a lot more effort in the graphics over the 3ds version please

  4. mattsname

    If I can get 6 mini pokemon for $12 I’ll be completely satisfied.Oh and I hope the game is good too…..

    Before this was announced, wasn’t Ubisoft going to be the first to have NFC with Rayman Legends…I remember seeing an Ezio NFC figurine…

  6. The Rayman NFC was a “leaked” video, but who knows if that will ever happen.
    Who knows, now that they have 7 or so months they may put that stuff into the game.

    Toys based on toys?? Genius.

    As said above: Rumble definately requires more depth though.

    Im interested to see how this turns out. Add more depth, option to carry them on or to other games and I could be sold!

    If they plan to release all the Pokémon in this manner, can we get massive cheap packs?? Otherwise im just going to focus on my favorites :P

    I guess if they did release them all, it would be interesting to see who used what statistic wise. Im sure there is quite a few who may not even show up on the list.
