    Super Pokémon Scramble, the 3DS sequel to the 2009 WiiWare brawler Pokémon Rumble, will be released from its Pokéball into North American retail on October 24 under the name Pokémon Rumble Blast.

    Like its WiiWare predecessor, Pokemon Rumble Blast is a Dynasty Warriors-ish beat-em-up in which you control one mechanical "Toy Pokémon" against hordes of other Poké-automata, with, of course, the ability to capture enemies and add them to the playable roster. More than 600 wind-up Pokemon varieties will appear, including new ones from Black and White.

    If you happen to meet other players as you wander about the world with your 3DS, you'll be able to view their Miis and engage in automatic battles via StreetPass. Or, you can play together actively in a cooperative local wireless mode.[/p]

    Not interested. I'm only interested in the main games and pokemon mystery dungeon.

    Darn, if the 3DS were to only have such pokemon games, I don't know why I've bought the system in the first place

    Over 600 pokemon, eh? Quite a jump from just 257(Gen1&4) in the original. Looking forward to this. 8)

    I wasn't really looking forward to this but the more I peak at it the more it looks fun. The day after my birthday? It's likely I'll be picking up this title [​IMG]

    Yes
    I think this could have been a pretty good 3DSWare title. I know they added plenty of things, but it still seems it lacks something to justify the $40 tag, by looking at the videos and screenshots. Maybe I'll give this a shot if I see it used somewhere.

    I agree, it should have been for 3DSware, I mean, if they really put enough to warrant for the $40 price tag, I'll be amazed and surprised.

    No more 6 months crap because it is not a rpg with a lot of text to translate.

    Anyway I heard they added a number of features in this version.

    Not as much content to translate, hence quicker.

    Pokemon Scramble was basically just a terribly boring dungeon crawler with absolutely no value to it. At least most hack 'n' slash dungeon crawlers I've played did have some depth behind them, such as good RPG aspects and of course the massive amounts of loot. Pokemon Scramble basically makes Dynasty Warriors look as complex as Knights in a Nightmare.

    I can't really describe how much I hate it. At least Dynasty Warriors has multiple campaigns, significantly different play styles for a few characters, and there's actually some type of "loot" aspects to it (such as finding new weapons and armor). This is just running around, mashing a single button, and watching the terrible art design generate dead Pokemon wind-up toys.

    I guess this game follows the "Anime game mentality", y'know, if you like the anime, you'll like the game in most cases, even if it's mediocre (But if it's bad you probably won't like it). It's the same case here, but instead of the anime we're just talking pokemon in general.

    On a side note, can someone please fix the OP?

    Considering this has nothing to do with the anime (which was made for the game, not visa versa) and the design is completely different, unless you're a drooling moron, you should at least do yourself a favor and play a fun Pokemon game like the main series games.

    I fixed the OP but I kinda fucked up and forgot to set the OP as yours, my bad.

    This spin off crap for pokemon has always turned out rubbish, at least the main series have yet to disappoint me.

    Well, imagine what would happen if the main series were screwed up
