Pokémon Conquest for Nintendo DS Set to Launch on June 18

Experience the Acclaimed Pokémon Series in an Entirely New Way in this Hand-Held Adventure

A creative new entry in the Pokémon family of video games delivers a new way for fans to enjoy this legendary series on the Nintendo DS family of systems. Pokémon Conquest, set to launch on June 18, offers a fun new way to play Pokémon in a unique world called Ransei that is filled with adventure. Developed by TECMO KOEI GAMES Co., Ltd., the 2D game can also be played on the Nintendo 3DS system.

In Pokémon Conquest, players take on the role of a young Warlord who is linked with a Pokémon. Together, they must set out to recruit Warrior allies to strengthen their growing kingdom. Along their journey, players will encounter a variety of Pokémon, as well as Warriors and Warlords inspired by the Japanese feudal era. The game contains nearly 200 Pokémon, including many from the recent Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games, which have sold more than 4 million copies combined in the United States.

As the battlefield unfolds in Pokémon Conquest, players must choose the correct Pokémon type to inflict maximum damage on their opponents. In the turn-based skirmishes, players choose different tactics for intense six-on-six battles, and battle conditions can change on every turn, keeping players on their toes in anticipation of what will happen next.

“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.”

What's the game about anyways? I've seen the Japanese game a bit, but never really bothered to look it up.

Genuinely surprised they're bringing it over; excellent news. Now if we can just get the prompt for Europe, too...

(Although given it's a DS game, that's not something I actually need to worry about. Possibly for the last time on a Nintendo system :-( )

Hmmm, so they're knocking Nobunaga out of the title. :\

Are you really surprised? Nobunaga may be a well-known historic figure in Japan, but how many Americans have heard of him? And thats not to mention the difficulties many people have in pronouncing Japanese words/names as it is.

So they are just catering to the lazy or uneducated ;P

What the hell is this game about?

Pokemon troops led by warlords based on Japanese historical figures fighting to unify warring states era Japan (or, rather, a thinly disguised version of that Japan). The gameplay is a turn based strategy game.

Surprised this is coming as well, I guess the solution when dealing with crossovers is to pretend it doesn't exist. lol

Should probably not trust the 7-11 security cameras quite so much
Cool. I really didn't think this would be released outside of Japan.

Now to wait for an EU release date.

I do hope they go the whole 90's anime route and 'Westernize' all the names into 'hip american' names.
No.
