Second wave of Pokemon Rumble U figures revealed

Eevee, Mewtwo, Croagunk, Zoroark, Litwick and Genesect

Nintendo is starting to roll out more details on the physical aspect of Pokemon Rumble U, revealing the second wave of toy figures — Eevee, Mewtwo, Croagunk, Zoroark, Litwick and Genesect. Said figures will utilize NFC technology (near field communication) to interact with the Wii U GamePad, just like Skylanders.

The actual game is dropping in Japan on April 24th, with the first set of figures, and this second set will roll out in May. I expect the Genesect and Mewtwo will be heavy sellers due to their film later this year. Figures are reportedly going for the equivalent of $2, but western pricing (or a release for that matter) isn’t 100% confirmed yet.

I’m not a huge fan of the Rumble series, but the toys have me intrigued to see where Nintendo brings the franchise next.
