    Please tell me that somewhere along the way this turns into a full bloom Pokemon Ambition title.

    I got to play right after that second battle (Pidgeon and Bidoof), and got bored after that. :(
    For what it's worth, it looks like a very polished title, and the fact that there are little kanas on Kanji that makes them readable for people like me is good too. I'm into the whole Tactics genre as well, growing up on the strategy classics, but i probably won't bother with this unless it gets localized.

    So disappointed...

    To put it simply, Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition is a tactical RPG that combines characters from Koei's Nobunaga's Amibition and Sengoku Basara franchises with the Pokémon setting.

    It's a pretty simple game, designed to be easily understood by children. As such, it actually requires little to no knowledge of Japanese to play, though you'll naturally miss out on the story. If you know a bit of Japanese, the dialogue is almost entirely written in simple hiragana and katakana characters, and the few kanji are accompanied by furigana.

    The game is set in the turbulent region of Ranse, which is divided into several different nations, such as Hajime-no-Kuni, the Land of Beginnings, and Kaen-no-Kuni, the Land of Flames. You are able to navigate from nation to nation using a map screen, with new areas opening up as you progress through the story.

    Within these regions are several Bushō (Commanders) who use Pokémon Partners to take part in a type of battle called an Ikusa. The Bushō are all based on famous figures from Japan's Warring States period, commonly known as the Sengoku Era, and are specifically modeled after their appearances in Koei's games.

    If you're familiar with Final Fantasy Tactics or Disgaea, the gameplay is nearly identical, but simplified -- it's essentially an entry level tactical RPG, very beginner friendly. If you're not familiar with the genre, the Ikusa battles take place on an isometric battlefield divided into a grid. You and your opponents take turns maneuvering your Pokémon around the battlefield, and then unleash attacks when the time is right. The goal, as always, is to knock out all your opponent's Pokémon.

    The game features two main collection elements: Pokémon and Bushō. The game only has about 200 obtainable Pokémon, but it's also got about 200 unique Bushō, including various famed soldiers, generals, warlords, ninjas, etc. The Bushō you recruit come with their own Bushō Powers that will give you benefits in battle. The trick is to match your Bushō with Pokémon they're compatible with, to increase the Link between the two. The more synchronized they are, the stronger they get. Something special will also happen when you reach Max Link.

    I'm not anywhere near completing the game yet, but I understand the main story mode is supposed to run about 20 hours. After that, numerous additional scenarios open up. There are also several scenarios that'll be distributed via wifi.

    You might want to check this out. Even if you don't know Japanese, it'll be pretty easy to fumble your way through. Since it's not clear if it'll get a Western localization, your only option might be to play it in Japanese or to wait for a translation patch.

    You need to use the latest loaders (Dated 03/07/2012), not the default loaders that came with AKAIO 1.8.9z.

    A normal Pokemon game is easily playable without undestanding Japanese, but this might be a little more complex.
    It may be a case similar to the Kingdom Hearts games, where a menu translation may come very quickly and you can just read the story from a script while playing (Or not even that, on some pokemon games you can just see the story without reading a single word).

    There may also be a full translation (In one of the other threads a team already stated they will work on this).



    Pokemon games are always highly demanded in the west and this, as far as I know, is the first Pokemon crossover title there is, further increasing the demand for a localization.

    And Nintendo knows that.
    They know we like Pokemon.
    They know we like Nobunaga's Ambition (Most of them have been released in the west).
    They know we like games with similar gameplay (like FFT or Disgaea).

    I wouldn't say that, the reason we get Nobunaga's Ambition and ROTK games is because KOEI is boss, not because their strategy games do particularly well (plus we never got the PS3 or DS versions, so it's been about 5 years). I think this is Nintendo's decision to make, and I'm pretty sure they underestimate their Poke-fan's thirst for warped Japanese history lessons.

    Most likely YWG will be releasing an update for Wood R4 some time soon, just wait a little bit.
    EDIT: Also I think there is a chance this game will come to America, if it doesn't I am pretty sure a lot of people will make it come out.

    Tried DS Scene Rom Tool, I put it on my desktop and went to open it but it just gave me a bunch of errrors saying stuff was missing and kept asking me to install parts of it like DLL's and stuff.

    Yup. That seems to work. I've passed through the first 2 stages, but this game isn't easy without English. Although I am trying to make a semi-attempt at translating from what I see. Seeing as I don't know Hiragana or Kanji, this isn't easy.

    From the main menu, you have Continue, New Game, Collection and Wireless stuff. Continue and New Game are obvious. Collection has the ability to show Pokemon (Button on the Left) and the Bushous Gallery (Button on the Right).You can get info on each of the Pokemon or the Bushous you have faced in the past from the two screens. I won't go in-depth about them because I cannot translate them. From what I do gather, though, there are 199 Pokemon in the game. On the top screen of the Pokemon Collection page, the top number represents Pokemon you have seen, the bottom is what you have (Used in battle or own, not too sure yet.) The Bushou screen has you and Oichi to start, but will fill up to it's 200 person capacity over the duration of the game.

    The Wireless screens have three options at the start. The top button, Ikusa (Not sure what that translates as) has 2 Wireless options, I assume a send and a receive button of some sort. The second button, Download has a Wifi Download option for downloading extra content. The third one is your Wifi settings button.

    Continue (Option on the top) will then tell you it is loading the data, then a confirmation screen will appear and you will soon see the world map. I'll give a brief explanation of the buttons I do know of so far.

    Start Menu:
    Top button (With the Pokeball) is your collection. See above for more info.
    Second Button (With the Wrench) is your settings. They are (What I know)
    -Message Speed
    -Message (not sure)
    -Sound
    -(not sure)
    -Anime Speed (I assume the speed at which the animations go)
    -Camera Speed
    The button in the bottom middle saves your changes, the B button returns without making any changes.
    Third Option (With the Lock) is Password. IIRC, you unlock that later in the game, I'm not sure when though.
    Fourth Option (With the Running Person) is Give Up. I assume that is the surrender button for use in battle.
    Fifth Option (With the arrow pointing to the door) is Title Screen. Obvious what this does.
    Sixth Option (With the sheet of paper and an arrow) is your Save button.

    Your Y Button menu (Not sure what it translates as) is what I presume a list of Bushuos you can face at that given point in time. X appears to advance the time by one day, as the game works on a system of days and months.

    Battling:
    When you go to begin a battle, you'll see Oichi and yourself in the top left corner (Perhaps more if you've progressed) Tapping each of them will allow you to use them in a fight. Once you have picked your Pokemon, hit the button underneath to begin. If I am correct, the number that appears before the fighting starts is a number of turns allowed in the battle. To select a Pokemon, tap on them and you'll be given instructions. Anywhere a wavy blue tile is, you can move there. Once you've moved, you can stay there (top option) or attack if someone is nearby (bottom option). If you choose to attack, a wavy orange tile will show any place you can attack. However, I'm not sure on how you change your attacks. At any point in the battle, hold Y and press Left/Right to rotate the camera, or Up/Down for Zoom. You can also use Bushuo powers (Pressing X while you have the ability to chose where to move).

    That's most of what I do know of gameplay so far. If anyone needs to correct this, feel free to.

    i personally cant wait for this game to release in North America. I love strategical games, and pokemon, so this is obviously on my hitlist. but i dunno if it will turn out ok or not, i might first try it out in japanese, just see if the gameplay is ok...i wonder if you can evolve in this game, and are all the pokemon in this game, or only a select few??
