Pokemon Rumble Wii U uses NFC toys - Check out translated trailer

Ever since we learned that the Wii U GamePad would include an NFC sensor, we knew it was only a matter of time before Nintendo would release a Pokemon-based game using it. Now, we know what that game is: Pokemon Rumble Wii U. 

Yeah, it's not a real Pokemon game, but it's still an interesting proof of concept. Check out the trailer below, which we've translated from Japanese so you can actually know what's going on.

So, what do you think? Gonna buy 'em all, or are you going to wait for a full-fledged Pokemon game that uses it?

    That was actually pretty good! By which I mean, Coop's dubbing. Although admittedly, it was unintentionally hilarious as well (totally lost it at "you'll play the heck out of this crazy, and absurd action").

    Thanks! Takeshi translated and I read. And yeah, I think the actual translation is "crap" but I figured Nintendo wouldn't say that in the US ;).

    SO THATS WHAT THAT LITTLE SQUARE DOES DAMN, theres allot of craziness happening, frankly i LOVED how overall better Rumble Blast was to the mediocre wii game, and this one has a lot of shit at 1 time (and shinyness, which Nintendo really loves using). I cant resist so ill definitley be interested, the gameplay showed you can catch pokemon normally so who knows how much of the game the figurines will play out
