Pokemon and Nobunaga's Ambition is coming to the US this summer under the name Pokemon Conquest. The new Pokemon DS game was recently released in Japan and now it has been announced that it will be released in the US on June 18th.
So why the new name? Well, the Nobunaga's Ambition games aren't well known outside of Japan so it makes sense for Nintendo to rename it Pokemon Conquest for the US release.
Pokemon Conquest is a turn-based strategy game in which you play as a Warlord who has to build a bond with their Pokemon in order to become more powerful and intimidate his foes. You'll be battling Warlords and their Pokemon in a bid to unite the Ransei region.
Pokemon from Pokemon Black and White's Unova region will be joined by older Pokemon in Pokemon Conquest. Nobunaga's partner is Pokemon Black and White's Zekrom, Oichi (your helper in the game) has Jigglypuff, Mitsuhude teams up with Articuno, Shingen with Groudon while Mewtwo is Kenshin's partner.
According to the official Pokemon website, "Pokémon Conquest takes Pokémon video games to an all-new level!"
Hopefully Pokemon Black and White 2 will be the one to take Pokemon videogames to an all-new level when they're released in the Autumn but US gamers have an extra Pokemon game to look forward to this summer.
