The Wii U GamePad is capable of near field communication technology, much like the Skylanders series and the upcoming Disney Infinity. Pokémon Rumble U is the first Wii U game to take advantage of it.

You can check out the trailer for the game below, which features lots of frantic-beat-em-up gameplay with recognizable Pokémon. Along with the trailer, Nintendo also opened up the Rumble U website today, which you can check out by heading here.

Pokémon Rumble U will be available to download on Wii U this month. For more on the game, head here.
