Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition, a crossover between Game Freak and Tecmo Koei, capitalizes on Sengoku fever by pairing Nobunaga with Zekrom. A scan from Jump revealed three more pairs: Chosokabe Motochika and Dewott (Futachimaru), Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Moferno (Moukasaru), and Mori Motonari and Servine (Janovy). Read about the other announced Pokémon teams are here.
Players will be able to fight in 6-on-6 battles using standard Pokémon rules, but each warrior only has one Pokémon. Instead of Gym Leaders, Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition has 17 castles to conquer in the game’s single player mode.
Nintendo also added a multiplayer mode, which lets players battle each other online over Nintendo Wi-Fi. Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition is scheduled to come out in Japan for Nintendo DS on March 17.
