Pokémon Scramble U Set To Be The First Wii U Title To Use The NFC Feature

We can hear our wallets crying

The latest edition of CoroCoro magazine has released some new information on upcoming Pokémon title for the Wii U, Pokémon Scramble U. The game will be released in Japan on the 24th April, and it'll be the first title to utilize the console's NFC (Near Field Communication) feature.

NFC allows the player to place real-life objects — in this case, Pokémon figures — on the GamePad, and watch as it takes effect in-game. The figures will launch on the same day as the title, and will be available at Pokémon Center stores across Japan for 200 Yen (approx. £1.40 / €1.60 / $2). All 649 Pokémon from each generation will be featured in the game.

What are your thoughts on this? Would this have an effect on whether you purchase the game or not? Let us know in the comment section below.
