Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition. Wow. I mean, just... really? That's... I never would have...

There have been rumors of a new Pokémon game floating about, and most assumed that it was either the inevitable Pokémon Gray or a brand new generation for the 3DS. Turns out neither are true, nor is it your run-of-the-mill Mystery Dungeon or other such spin-off. No, it's a crossover with Koei's Japanese history strategy series Nobunaga's Ambition. On top of that, it's for the vanilla DS.

There are so many things completely bizarre about this, but I think I'll let the media speak for itself. Just check the photos released by Dengeki or tour the site. Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition, everybody.
