Pocket Rumble still (seems to be) releasing on Switch

Does anyone remember the announcement of Pocket Rumble during one of the earliest Nintendo Switch showcases?

I do, and I was anxiously awaiting to purchase this title when it was supposed to launch in early March 2017.

Pocket Rumble On Switch

Well, just over a full year has passed since the original release date. A year! We have barely heard anything about Pocket Rumble since that initial announcement.

With that said, just when all hope seemed lost, news popped up out of the blue and a release on the Switch now seems to be imminent.

Let’s get you guys caught up:

  • The game made its first appearance in over a year at the London convention EGX Rezzed
  • Not only was it at the event, but there was also a playable demo for fans and press to try out
  • This seems to indicate the title is closing in on a final build since developer Cardboard Robot games are finally comfortable enough to let people try out their title on Nintendo hardware
  • Shortly after the event, news started to leak that Pocket Rumble will be releasing on the Japanese eShop soon.
  • An employee for Cardboard Robot Games confirmed Pocket Rumble’s upcoming launch on Twitter
  • Although there still is no official release date set yet, I would expect an announcement any day now

So, what do you guys think? Are you happy Pocket Rumble seems to be finally coming out? Or has the long wait made you guys lose interest?
