Official Trailer Released for Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Levelled-up hype

Last week we reported that there's a new Pokémon title coming to Japan on the DS, a crossover title that features Tecmo Koei's Nobunaga's Ambition series.

Pokemon Company has now released a two-minute trailer that shows off plenty of the overhead strategy gameplay, along with what appears to be a local multiplayer mode. We've attached the video below, what do you think of it?

Always let the Pokémon do your dirty work, they won't mind.
While i expected the battles to also include the warlords it still looks promising. Can't wait to hear about Japanese reviews. :)

Now that Koei is helping out with this Pokemon cross-over I want a Pokemon Dynasty Warriors game. Just saying.



Geonjaha said:

This crossover just looks weird - it doesnt fit. None the less the graphics and gameplay look alright, but I wouldnt buy it anyway if it came out here.



Squashie said:

Hmm, That looks interesting. But are Pokemon cross overs the right way to take the Pokemon Franchise?



Progamer said:

Looks kinda odd from any other pokemon game i have seen! nah i'll pass on this one.

Well.... I wouldn't pick this up. When I saw the headline a few weeks back, I had assumed that it would be in the Pokemon RPG turn-based style of fighting. This isn't something that appeals to me. If it were a bit more like Pokemon Rumble or Fire Emblem, far's a "no" from me.



Bankai said:

Why would people think this game won't be released in the west? It's a Pokemon game, and Nobunaga's Ambition games have been localised plenty often in the past.

It's a good thing. Hopefully it gives Nobunaga's Ambition a boost in popularity, though this game is lite as all hell.

@kyuubikid213 - ... more like Fire Emblem you say? Did you watch the video? Fire Emblem is a grid-based strategy rpg, hmmm, so is this game.

I also don't see why people don't think it will leave Japan, it's a pokemon game. Very rarely do pokemon games not leave Japan (and in those cases it's stuff like Pikachu Teaches Typing). This wouldn't be as niche as people think.

Man, I wish Pokemon Typing DS would come to the US. It would really help my typing speed cause I love Pokemon!



XCWarrior said:

Nintendo, I have money. Bring this to America. It's Pokemon. It will accidentally sell a million with the name in the title alone. It's not even a remote financial risk.

Fire Emblem x Pokemon x obscure Japanese generals game brand?
hmm.... maybe.... just maybe.....



bahooney said:

This looks absolutely amazing. I doubt it will be localized, but I will hold out hope that Nintendo sees the cash behind the Pokemon brand!

At first when I heard about it, I thought that it was weird, especially when the first trailer came out with NO game play footage. Now seeing the footage I would buy this game. The question is, will it come over? Who knows. It would cost a lot to localize but as pointed out earlier a million copies would sell just with Pokemon in the title. I look forward to the reviews when it hits Japan.

So amazing! I can't wait to get it, it's definately worth getting, even if there's no North American version.

I want a pokemon emerald remake for 3ds with trick master and secret bases and all that. I know a person who works for pokemon and said it was comming.



CerealKiller062 said:

DS? Looks like I will be importing this. Interesting game and seems very cool to play. I wonder, if this is at an imperial age, would they still use pokeballs? Oh well, time to catch up on my kanji, katakana, and hiragana. Looks text heavy.



emmamaybe said:

I am really excited about this! I hope they release it internationally, esp in Australia haha. Are 3ds region free?
