It’s been less than a year since Pokémon Quest became the latest mobile Pokémon title, but today the Pokémon Company announced another new title. Pokémon Rumble Rush trades in idle gameplay for direct control of your Pokémon in top-down beat-em-up style gameplay. This is the fifth game in the Pokémon Rumble series after 2016’s Pokémon Rumble World for the Nintendo 3DS.
Pokémon Rumble Rush is the official release of Pokéland, which was beta tested in Japan back in 2017. Check out some early gameplay footage of that game below, but expect a higher level of polish from the final release.
Essentially, Pokémon Rumble Rush is a mobile version of Pokémon Rumble World, which itself was a freemium game. Mobile devices are a great fit for the series, since they feature simple gameplay loops and cater to short sessions.
