Pokemon is known for strictly following a formula. Every iteration of the series from Pokemon Red to Pokemon Black has followed this pattern. When rumors began to circulate indicating another Pokemon game was on the horizon, we all thought Pokemon Grey was the obvious next Pokemon game. We were all wrong. Reports from Jump Festa, a Japanese gaming conventions, reveal the next Pokemon game is called Pokemon X Nobunaga's Ambition.
All we have to go on is a series of screens from the game. Pokemon X Nobunaga's Ambition would be a crossover title for the DS that combines the strategy series with the cute monster collecting series. The screens show generals in ancient Japanese armor and Eevee. According to Serebii the game has gamers in the role of a Pokemon as he (or she) attempts to take over parts of the Ranse region. The game has 17 castles, each with a general and a specific Pokemon.
I'm all for Game Freak and Nintendo taking risks but this seems weird. I definitely wouldn't have imagined this but I'll wait until I play to judge it. What do you think? Is this the weirdest crossover idea you've ever seen?
