For Pokemon Rumble World’s one year anniversary, The Pokemon Company is releasing a retail version of the downloadable game. Previously only available from the Nintendo 3DS eShop, Rumble World will be coming to mom-and-pop shops on April 29, 2016.
Interestingly, according to the press release, there will be no micro-transactions. The original eShop game is free-to-start, with a variety of micro-transactions peppered in. Following in that vein, players will not be able to transfer saved data from the free-to-start version of the game to the physical version.
