Have you ever played a Pokémon game and thought yourself, ‘what this pocket monster collecting and battling game really needs is a link to the past’? Well, Nintendo and Tecmo Koei have made your dream come true, with Pokémon Conquest - a crossover involving the characters from prominent Japanese warlord series Nobunaga’s Ambition.
In this game, players assume the role of Warlords which have ties with Pokémon and use their knowledge with the creatures to expand and fortify their empire. Battle consists of 6-on-6 turn-based battles, with Pokémon controlled by the Warlords via special moves and tactical play.
Nearly 200 Pokémon are included in the game, and can help you to take control and unite the region of Ransei and its 17 different kingdoms (one kingdom for each of the 17 Pokémon types). When the region is united, there is hope of awakening the Legendary Pokémon... 36 different Warlords are available to control, each with their own unique storyline.
During combat, you’re not just relying on the skills of your Pokémon team. Warlords each have a unique special ability that can be used to turn the tide of battle. After recruiting as many Warlords as you can and collecting a whole heap of Pokémon, you can take the fight to other Nintendo DS or Nintendo 3DS players by engaging in multi-card multiplayer.
