Pokemon Rumble World classified suspiciously close to Nintendo DeNA deal

Pokemon Rumble World has been outed by the delightfully transparent Australian Classification Board.


We don’t know what Pokemon Rumble Worlds is; Nintendo politely advised us it has “nothing to announce at this time”.

Thanks to the ACB, we do know it’s PG rated, has online interactivity, and is coming to multiple platforms – all of which is unusual for Nintendo.

We can’t help but wonder if this has something to do with Nintendo’s deal with DeNA to take its properties mobile. A free-to-play, Pokemon Rumble spin-off? Seems likely.

Or maybe it’s coming to Wii U and new Nintendo hardware NX? Cross-platform play with PC via Nintendo’s new connected future? Hmm!

We may find out more after a Japanese press conference later today.

There have been three Pokemon Rumble games so far: Pokemon Rumble on Wii, Pokemon Rumble Blast on 3DS and Pokemon Rumble U for Wii U.

Thanks, Gematsu.
