Packaged Version of Pokémon Rumble World on the Way

Pokémon Rumble World, the free-to-start game for the Nintendo 3DS, is coming to stores in April. The game will be sold in a packaged retail version starting April 29th, 2016. Originally released as a downloadable game on Nintendo eShop in April 2015, the retail boxed version will include all accessible content in the world of Toy Pokémon.

In the packaged version, you’ll obtain 3,000 Poké Diamonds and a Poké Diamond Digger at the in-game shop right after the tutorial ends. The Poké Diamond Digger will give you 40 Poké Diamonds every day.

Additionally, you’ll be able to pick up Pokémon VIP Cards in the in-game shop. The Balloon VIP card lets you inflate any hot-air balloon for just one Poké Diamond. The Timing Stop VIP Card lets you use the Timing Stop to pick which stage you’d like to visit for only one Poké Diamond, too. (You’ll need to get the Timing Stop before acquiring the Timing Stop VIP Card.)

With the new packaged game featuring more Poké diamond availability, there will be no in-game purchases in the package version of Pokémon Rumble World and you can’t transfer saved data between the free-to-download and package versions of the game. StreetPass and SpotPass functionality will work between the two games however.

No word yet on just how much the game will cost, though look for it to come in at the standard $34.99 CAD price point. The game launches on April 29th.
