Entertainment Toys Videogames Videos

At this point my kids and I have sort of had our fill of Skylanders, and we never really got sucked into the hype for Disney Infinity. This upcoming downloadable Wii U title, however, will no doubt be a big deal in our household. It combines everything we love about Pokémon Rumble Blast with the Wii U GamePad’s Near Field Communication feature.

Pokémon Rumble U will be available August 29 for $17.99 via the Nintendo eShop, with NFC Toy Pokémon figures sold exclusively at GameStop for an MSRP of $3.99 each.
