SUPER POKÉMON RUMBLE BRINGS POKÉMON ACTION TO NINTENDO 3DS FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS CHRISTMAS

 

20 th October 2011 – This Christmas, kids needn’t settle for ordinary toys. Instead, they can encounter hundreds of extraordinary Toy Pokémon in the newest entry in the fan-favourite Pokémon video game series. Super Pokémon Rumble game launches across Europe on 2 nd December 2011 as the first Pokémon game created for the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system, letting new and existing fans experience the world-renowned franchise in a whole new dimension. With the unique features of Nintendo 3DS, players can not only battle and collect more than 600 Toy Pokémon in 3D without the need for special glasses, but also play together with a friend in a new cooperative multiplayer mode and discover interactive StreetPass content.

Super Pokémon Rumble takes place in a world called Toyland, where players must take on the role of Toy Pokémon as they navigate a series of imaginative levels. The game features more than 600 Toy Pokémon to collect. New Team Battle and Charge Battle modes provide fast-paced challenges that will thrill players of any experience level, while giant Boss Toy Pokémon will test the skills of even the most seasoned fans.

Players have two ways to connect with each other in Super Pokémon Rumble. Using a local wireless connection, they can play cooperatively in game areas that both players have already completed, also making it easier to collect more Toy Pokémon than usual. By using the Nintendo 3DS system’s built-in StreetPass feature, they can also challenge Toy Pokémon from the collections of other nearby players and view customised Mii characters within the game.

Toy Pokémon that can be collected in Super Pokémon Rumble include Pokémon from the Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games. Since launching in Japan in 1996, nearly 225 million Pokémon video games have sold worldwide.

Super Pokémon Rumble is available exclusively on Nintendo 3DS from 2nd December 2011..
