WiiWare monster fans will remember Pokémon Rumble, in which your toy Pokémon fought others in a last-one-standing battle royale. That excitement is coming to 3DS soon with Super Pokémon Rumble (also known as Super Pokémon Scramble) out in Japan this summer.

The game uses the classic top-down viewpoint as you battle other toy monsters in real-time, nabbing them for your collection as you go along. You can also swap monsters with other players via StreetPass, a feature we hope to see in the inevitable Pokémon adventure on 3DS.

Super Pokéon Rumble hits Japanese stores on 28th July, and although Nintendo is yet to discuss a Western release, it seems a surefire shoe-in.
