Nintendo made a lot of Pokemon fans happy this morning with the confirmation that the DS game Pokemon Conquest will be getting a U.S. release on June 18, 2012. If that title sounds unfamiliar to you, it's probably because you already know it as Pokemon x Nobunaga's Ambition.
The strategy game from Tecmo Koei ties your favorite Pokemon characters to "Warriors and Warlords inspired by the Japanese feudal era," the press release notes. Those who are familiar with Tecmo Koei's various Warriors games will probably recognize a lot of the names that pop up. It's a completely odd mash-up, but it also makes a certain amount of sense to pair together these completely different and yet similarly varied and colorful rosters. Pokemon fans can expect to encounter around 200 individual beasties, including those from the recent Pokemon Black/White Version titles.
Take a peek at the Japanese-language debut trailer to get a better sense of what you can expect.
