Did you think you wouldn’t get to play Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition? Think again. Nintendo and The Pokémon company announced today that the game will be released in North America as Pokémon Conquest this June.
Pokémon Conquest is developed by Tecmo Koei games and pairs Nintendo’s popular creatures with fantasy versions of warlords from Japan’s feudal era. The player can choose to play as either a male or female character, and the game contains nearly 200 Pokémon in total.
“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.”
Pokémon Conquest will be released for the Nintendo DS on June 18th.
