Pokemon Rumble World is ditching its F2P scheme with retail release


In Japan

Well this is kind of cool. While I thought Pokémon Rumble World was rather fair with its free-to-play scheme, it will be getting a full retail release in Japan on November 19. It'll run you 3,700 yen (roughly $30 US), and will net you 3,000 PokéDiamonds, which essentially eliminates the free-to-play portion of the game.

I'd love to see something like this for Pokémon Shuffle, but then again that game is a lot more predatory -- so it wouldn't make much monetary sense.
