Were you worried that PokÃ©mon + Nobunaga's Ambition for Nintendo DS wouldn't ever possibly come to the US? A lot of people did, since the Nobunaga's Ambition series is pretty much unheard of here, despite several of the games having a North American release. However, Nintendo has a surprise today for you folks! The strategy RPG PokÃ©mon spin-off will indeed be making its appearance on western shores as PokÃ©mon Conquest on June 18th.
Here's what Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales and Marketing, had to say about the game's localization:
â€œPokÃ©mon fans are always interested in playing in new environments and experiencing new adventures ... PokÃ©mon Conquest gives them an entirely new way to enjoy this beloved series, with exciting new settings, fierce battles and nearly 200 PokÃ©mon to team up with.â€
Are you surprised that this rather odd PokÃ©mon spin-off will be coming to North America? Will you be picking it up once it releases?
