Pokémon Conquest announced for Nintendo DS
Nintendo of America have today announced that Pokémon Conquest is set to release across North America on June 18th.
Having previously released across Japan as Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition, it is developed by Tecmo Koei and will see players explore a unique world called Ransei.
You will take on the role of a young Warlord who is linked with a Pokémon, and, together, you must set out to recruit Warrior allies to strengthen your growing kingdom. Along the way, you’ll meet a variety of Pokémon, and Warriors and Warlords inspired by the Japanese feudal era.
Turn-based skirmishes will see players choose the correct Pokémon type to inflict the maximum damage possible on their opponents, selecting between different tactics during intense six-on-six battles.
There are nearly 200 Pokémon within the game, including those from Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version which have sold over 4 million copies combined within the North America alone.
“Pokémon fans are always interested in playing in new environments and experiencing new adventures”, comments 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”.
