Nintendo has announced plans to bring Pokémon & Nobunaga’s Ambition over to our shores on June 18. Titled Pokémon Conquest and developed by Tecmo Koei, the game is a crossover title blending the structure of the Nobunaga’s Ambition turn-based strategy games with elements and characters of the Pokémon universe.
Pokémon Conquest takes place in Rinsei, a world that mimics feudal Japan and contains many Japanese historical figures like feudal leader and general Oda Nobunaga. Players will take the role of a young Warlord who is linked with a Pokémon and must recruit other warriors and Pokémon to help strengthen their kingdom. Battles are not only turn-based, but will also incorporate Pokémon game-elements such as type advantage and disadavtages.
“Pokémon fans are always interested in playing in new environments and experiencing new adventures,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Pokémon Conquest gives them an entirely new way to enjoy this beloved series, with exciting new settings, fierce battles and nearly 200 Pokémon to team up with.”
