REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Following last year’s successful digital-only release of Pokémon Rumble World, Ninetendo has created a physical version that is now available on Nintendo 3DS.
Players control a Toy Pokémon in dozens of stages and can interact with over 700 other Pokémon in the retail version of the popular action-adventure gameplay. Suggested retail price is $29.99. Parental controls allow adults to manage their child’s activities.
“We love giving our fans as many purchase options as possible,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Players that love collecting physical games and all things Pokémon will now be able to add Pokémon Rumble World to their Nintendo 3DS collection.”
Using the StreetPass, SpotPass or “Call Someone Online” features (which, excluding StreetPass, require a wireless Internet connection), players can invite fellow players’ Mii characters into their castle town to assist them by providing helpful items. Players can even customize their Mii characters with outfits and a custom message.
