Nintendo and Tecmo Koei team up for Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition

Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition
Gotta catch ‘em all! And in Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition, that means using the pokemon and warlord teams to conquer every region in the game. Did that confuse you? I thought it might.

The mystery Pokémon game that Nintendo was rumored to be working on is actually a collaboration with Tecmo Koei. So Pokémon is going to be mashed up with the Nobunaga’s Ambition strategic simulation. It sounds crazy, I know, but here’s how it will work. It will be a strategic simulation, just like the other Nobunaga’s Ambition games and be loosely based on Nobunaga’s goal of unifying Japan. As a twist, each warrior in the game will be bonded with a pokémon, and it seems like pokémon will be crucial in the fights to reclaim areas and unify the country. If you’ve played a Samurai Warriors game, then you’ll likely recognize some of the characters.

An initial trailer was also released, so you can see these daimyo and samurai frolicking with various pokémon.

Now for the weirdest part, as if this whole post doesn’t seem like some strange trolling attempt by Nintendo. Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition is going to be a DS game. Not a 3DS game, which would have made a lot more sense. It will be released in 2012. No word yet if there’ll be a North American release, but since it is a pokemon game, that seems likely.

Such a combination isn’t too unbelievable. I mean, Tecmo Koei and Nintendo are working together to make that Fatal Frame 2 Wii remake a reality. I guess we just couldn’t comprehend a combination like Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition.
