New Pokemon Crossover Revealed: Nobunaga’s Ambition X Pokemon for DS

by Hassan AhmedDecember 16, 2011

The special new Pokemon game reveal has happened at Jump Festa! And it’s… something nobody predicted. The game is called “Nobunaga’s Ambition X Pokemon” and will be released for Nintendo DS (not 3DS) in 2012 in Japan. For those that don’t know, Nobunaga’s Ambition is a turn-based strategy RPG series involving real battles in Japanese history by Koei Tecmo, so Pokemon is now doing a crossover with that series and obviously bringing it into the fictional realm. The game has been developed as a joint effort by The Pokemon Company/Nintendo and Koei Tecmo. The images seem to depict Sengoku-period generals teaming up with Pokemon, which is a very intriguing concept and actually looks really interesting to me. I’m disappointed that it’s a DS game, but I’m more curious than ever as to what this will be like. If there’s any new news, I’ll add it to this post, but in the meantime enjoy some more images….
