You got to hand it to Nintendo for making sure that no Pokémon title is left untouched for western release. While most people are not too familiar with the Nobunaga's Ambition series of games, the fact that it features various Pokémons will still get people to buy the game.
I know that there are a few people that are not too keen with the idea of crossing over Nobunaga's Ambition with Pokémon, but it's no different from any other fictional title that has featured Nobunaga, such as the Onimusha series. One thing for sure, I have always wanted to play a tactical RPG game where I got to control my own Pokémon units ever since I got to play Devil Survivor for the DS.
Just like the main Pokémon games, Pokémon Conquest has also featured a couple wifi events, except that the events also unlock new story missions besides new Pokémon and characters. So if Nintendo localizes these events as well, then the game will also have another good reason for you to go back to it from time to time.
While I have not seen much of the game in action, I do hope that the generals partake in the battles as well. That way we could see some team attacks where humans and Pokémon conquer their foes as one. Seeing how the game is only going to feature around an estimate of 200 Pokémon from all the generations, I am keeping my fingers crossed that a majority of my favorites make an appearance in the game.
Pokémon Conquest will conquer North American shores on June 18, so lets participate in this war as fellow Pokémon fans.
