Pokémon Rumble World getting a microtransactions-less version in 2016

The free-to-play Pokémon Rumble World, is getting a physical release that won't be free-to-play.

Pokémon Rumble World, a downloadable, free-to-play version of Pokémon that came out this year on the eShop, is getting a new release. The original game remains supported by microtransactions, but the new version will do away with those in favour of a more traditional price.

Poké Diamonds are still there, but you'll be receiving more of them regularly, and there's no option to buy them with real money.

Nintendo announced the new version today, but didn't offer a price. It's coming out January 22.

Thanks, Eurogamer
