Would you look at that! Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition is coming to the United States in the form of Pokémon Conquest. Given the premise and that this is a DS game, I had written it off as ever coming stateside. I suppose that's the raw power of Pokémon for you.

Speaking of which, if you're unfamiliar with the Japanese release of the game and just want to know more about those darned pocket monsters, Conquest will go all the way up to Generation V (Black and White) with around 200 Pokémon in total. It'll be hitting store shelves on June 18.

I'm curious to see how this performs over here. Probably fairly well, given the name alone. Presumably, there will be plenty of younger players who are unfamiliar with this type of gameplay, which is neat to think about. Expand those gaming horizons, kids.

Pokemon Conquest arrived yesterday (just in time for E3 travel!) and, while rifling through the game's bundle of packaging material, I found this little pass code. The code, which is good for only one use, unlocks Dratini as ...more

Preview: Pokemon Conquest

I made the harrowing decision to pass on Pokémon Black and White when they released, which I never expected to do, as an avid fan of Pokémon. It’s still a choice that doesn’t sit quite well with me (...more
