The Pokémon Company has announced that the next title in the Pokémon Rumble series is heading to mobiles.

Pokémon Rumble Rush is a “free-to-start beat-’em-up” and is best described by the developers themselves:

In Pokémon Rumble Rush players assume the role of an intrepid adventurer tasked with discovering new islands and the various Pokémon that inhabit each area. As they explore each island players must overcome the hordes of enemy Pokémon that stand in their way. By tapping the screen, the players’ partner Pokémon will rush in and attack each oncoming wave. During each of these encounters there is a chance one or more of the Pokémon will befriend a player and in turn use those Pokémon in future battles. Each island adventure features Super Boss fights and, if victorious, players have the chance to get items that power up their Pokémon.

As they play Pokémon Rumble Rush, players will have the chance to encounter hundreds of different species of Pokémon. The more players explore the game world and take part in special events, the more Pokémon they will discover—possibly including Legendary and Mythical Pokémon! Exploration may also lead to players finding a previously undiscovered stage, and as a reward, players get to name it.

The game will be avialable on both Android and iOS devices and has already been released on Android in Australia. iOS users and the rest of the world can expect to see a full worldwide release “shortly”. You can find more information on the game on the Pokémon website and, if you’re curious to see what it looks like in action, IGN has already posted some gameplay footage:

This marks the first time that an entry in the Rumble series has been made available on non-Nintendo devices. Will you be giving it a try?
