12 minutes of Pokemon Rumble U for Wii U

Pokemon Rumble U releases today in Japan and although there’s no western release date, we have 12 minutes of video courtesy of YouTuber NintenDaan1. You can see the implementation of the Rumble U figurines and what to expect in the gameplay. If you’re interested in checking out the currently released sets of Pokemon figures compatible with Pokemon Rumble U, you can find the first set here and the second set here.

More sets are expected to become available each month, as each figure only retails for around $2 a piece. What do you think of the gameplay? Is this something you’d pick up if it made its way over here? Let us know in the comments.
