The Pokemon Company just keeps on rolling lately, perhaps it has something to do with the recent release of Detective Pikachu, which undoubtedly has increased people’s interest in the Pokemon universe.
Earlier today, The Pokemon Company announced [or should we say re-released] new versions of PokeLand (which was itself a re-adaptation of Pokemon Rumble World on the Nintendo 3DS)! Japan and Australia are the first two regions to have access to the latest mobile game, respectively titled
Pokemon Scramble SP and Pokemon Rumble Rush. Why the difference in titles? We can’t really say at this time.
Pokemon Rumble Rush has nothing to do with the recently announced Pokemon mobile game being developed by DeNA, to be released in March of 2020.
The game will be free-to-play (no surprise there) with in-app purchases enabled (still no surprise). It is currently only available in Australia for Android users in Early Access as part of the soft launch, with no date announced for a worldwide release. The game will be available on both iOS and Android.
Pokemon Rumble Rush is a fast-paced game that lets you explore various islands and seas that will change every two weeks. For those unfamiliar with the Pokemon Rumble Rush concept, the goal is to visit those seas and islands and to attack the Pokemon you encounter by tapping them, which will engage in a battle sequence.
Successful completion of stage rewards with ore, which can then be refined in order to power gears that will make your Pokemon stronger. Trainers will also earn rewards that will unlock a Super Boss Rush mode where your Pokemon’s type will be important to take into account.
