Tecmo Koei Hints At A Pokémon Conquest Sequel

"There was a lot of unfinished material for Pokémon Conquest"
The Pokémon Company and Tecmo Koei recently collaborated to make a strategy RPG crossover called Pokémon Conquest that took the Nobunaga's Ambition style of gameplay and threw in a flurry of Pokémon to do the battling.
Even though the 3DS had been out a while at the time of the game's release, it was actually made available for the DS and the reason for this was it was being developed way before the 3DS ever existed, according to an Inside-Games report.
Pokémon Conquest took three years to develop and therefore was being worked on before Pokémon Black and White 2 was released. That meant the new 'mon found in those games sadly weren't available in Pokémon Conquest.
That didn't stop it from being well received though, so naturally fans of the game have been wondering if a sequel would be appearing on the horizon anytime soon, perhaps on the 3DS.
Well it's certainly not out of the question as Tecmo Koei’s Executive Vice President Hisashi Koinuma recently answered a fan's question on Twitter regarding a possible Pokémon Conquest sequel:
Well, there was a lot of unfinished material for Pokémon Conquest…
Inside-games has reason to believe the president and CEO of The Pokémon Company Tsunekazu Ishihara is a big fan of the Nobunaga’s Ambition series and would be open to the possibility of developing a sequel if people demanded it enough.
It's unlikely we'll see a sequel appear anytime soon, but it's nice to know there's a possibility of one in the future. We enjoyed the game a lot, as we explained in our Pokémon Conquest review.
