Here’s 12 minutes of Pokémon Rumble U, the first NFC-enabled Wii U title, which arrived on the Japanese eShop today.

The toys-to-life title hasn’t been confirmed for localisation, but a second set of figures was announced recently. The first set of figures included Pikachu and Bulbasaur. Each figure goes for ¥200, and they’re sold in capsule machines – so you take your chances.
