Pokemon Rumble U the first Wii U Game to use NFC with Pokemon figurines
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.
