More downloadable Pokemon is on the way to WiiWare. Nintendo announced today in Japan Ransen Pokemon Scramble, a slightly different take on the Pokemon franchise.
In Scramble, you take control of a windup Pokemon toy in overhead stages of play. As you defeat rival Pokemon and, eventually, bosses, you end up building up your roster of ally Pokemon.
This is where the "Ransen" part of the title comes into play. "Ransen" is Japanese for "Battle Royal." Once you've gathered Pokemon of enough strength, you can enter a battlefield to face your party off against dozens of rivals. Your goal is to be the last one standing.
While there does appear to be a strong single player component to the game, Pokemon Scramble will also support four player cooperative play. Other players can bring over their Pokemon data via their Wiimotes. Those with limited controllers can get two player play out of a single Nunchuck/Wiimote combo.
For a first look at at Pokemon Scramble, see the game's official site. The site is is in Japanese, as Nintendo has yet to announce an English release.
In Japan, players will get their hands on this new Pokemon game on June 16. The title is priced at 1,500 WiiPoints.
