Coming to Japan on April 24th, Nintendo’s Wii U is finally getting a game that will support the GamePad’s NFC (Near Field Communication), and that game is none other than Pokemon Rumble U.

Working in the same way Skylanders does, players will be able to buy collectible Pokemon figures, and scan them into the game using the GamePad’s NFC reader, giving you your very own virtual Pokemon in the game to play with.

The game itself will be downloadable in Nintendo’s eShop for 1,800 yen (About $18.80). And each figure is to be priced at 200 yen (About $2.00). Upon launch, there will be seven figures released, including six standard figures and one special edition figure. And other than Pikachu, no other Pokemon names have been released for the figures. As for a North American release date? No news on that yet. Perhaps around the Holidays? We can only guess at this point…but how awesome would that be?! And according to Nintendo’s very own Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo’s focus is on NFC-supporting projects, stating: “With NFC, that’s a feature that everyone that owns a Wii U can take advantage of. So that’s what we’re putting our priorities on right now.”

I for one look forward to seeing what Nintendo can come up with in terms of their NFC technology. We can only expect great things to come, gamers. Great things.
