Pokemon Blasting to Europe on 2nd December

Time to rumble

In a day of feverish announcements of all things Nintendo and 3DS, one group of gamers may have been wondering about a particular announcement. Breathe easy, European Pokemon fans, Super Pokémon Rumble, or Pokémon Rumble Blast to our readers in North America, has been confirmed for Europe-wide release on 2nd December.

The details provided are the same as before, when the North American release on 24th October was confirmed, but they are copied below for your convenience.

Pokémon™ fans will be able to experience for the first time the excitement of an action packed Pokémon adventure in 3D when Super Pokémon™ Rumble comes to Europe for Nintendo 3DS™ on 2nd December 2011. The first Pokémon game created exclusively for Nintendo 3DS, Super Pokémon Rumble allows you to battle against waves of opposing wind-up Toy Pokémon, connect with your friends and battle them together. There are more than 600 Toy Pokémon in total to collect.

As you advance through each stage in Super Pokémon Rumble, your Toy Pokémon can face dozens of other Toy Pokémon at once, creating fast and furious real-time battles. You can quickly and easily switch between the various Toy Pokémon you collect throughout the game to help win each battle. Get ready to also face off against giant Boss Pokémon, whose massive size and strength offer special challenges. Certain defeated Toy Pokémon can be befriended and added to your team, and you can also collect special Toy Pokémon, each with their own unique traits. There are more than 600 Toy Pokémon in all to collect, including those from the recently released Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games.

Super Pokémon Rumble offers two ways for you to wirelessly connect with your friends. Using a local wireless connection, you can enjoy a cooperative play mode that allows you and your friend to battle through levels together and more easily befriend defeated Toy Pokémon after battles. Using the Nintendo 3DS StreetPass™ feature, you can increase the chances of befriending Mythical and Legendary Pokémon, challenge the Toy Pokémon of players you pass in your daily travels and view other players’ Mii™ characters in the game.

November and December are busy months for 3DS owners in Europe, so does this one make your list?
