Pokemon Conquest Set To Launch On June 18

Nintendo announced today in a press release that Pokemon Conquest, previously titled Pokemon+Nobunaga’s Ambition, will be making its way to the United States on June 18th and will be hosted on the Nintendo DS platform. The game, which has already been released in Japan, is developed by Tecmo Koei Games Co. and meshes Pokemon’s classic RPG style with Nobunaga’s strategic centered gameplay along with its historical references.

The official press release from Nintendo:

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.”
