Obviously, there’s the Niantic-developed Pokémon Go , which is still going strong almost three years after its initial release, but there are a number of others, including 2017’s Magikarp Jump .

Earlier this week, noted that DeNA, the developer behind Super Mario Run , Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp , and the upcoming Mario Kart Tour , announced that it’s working on a Pokémon mobile game of its own that’s due to be released this financial year .

First released on the Wii back in 2009, the Pokémon Rumble games are a beat ‘em up take on the Pokémon series.

Since its debut, it’s seen four entries in total, with two titles appearing on the 3DS and another on the Wii U where it was the first game to support NFC figurines .

This NFC functionality would eventually morph into Nintendo’s incredible successful Amiibo lineup.
