The Daily Hotness: Nobunaga’s gotta catch’m all!

So, the prospect of a new Pokémon game on the 3DS had me really, really excited. The revelation of Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition for the Nintendo DS (not the 3DS) was both disappointing and exciting. The concept is definitely intriguing and the images sparked some sort of hidden Japanophile excitement somewhere in my soul. Could be good.
