    I never thought I would buy another pokèmon game after Platinum, but dammit this had to show up as Nintendo Power's cover story:

    " Pokémon Conquest (Japanese: ポケモン+ノブナガの野望 Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition) is a spin-off crossover between the Pokémon and Nobunaga's Ambition series of games, a first for the franchise. It was released in Japan on March 17, 2012. It is set for a North American release on June 18, 2012.
    Following a series of news regarding surprising announcements from both Jump Festa 2011 and the first issue of CoroCoro magazine in 2012, the game was revealed on December 17, 2011, at the Jump Festa event itself, with the official site launching soon after.
    The game takes place in a new region called Ransei. Various Pokémon from all five generations appear in this game. The game has DSi enhancements.
    Pokémon Conquest features a turn-based strategy battle system. Up to six Pokémon on each side are positioned on the battlefield, one for each participating Warlord, and both sides take turns moving and attacking with their Pokémon. A battle is won or lost when one side achieves the victory conditions for the match, for example defeating all the opponent's Pokémon, or capturing all the flags on the field, and so on. When a battle is won, all participating Pokémon gain points to their Link with their respective Warlords. The player can recruit more Warlords, and thus more potential Pokémon to choose from for battle, throughout the game, often through defeating them in battle. There is also a multiplayer wireless mode in which two players may battle each other.
    Pokémon in the game can grow in strength by increasing their Link with their Warlord. Depending on how well matched a pair is, the maximum level of the Link between the two varies, with most Warlords only able to achieve a 100% or Best Link with a single species of Pokémon. Aside from growing more powerful, Pokémon may evolve when their Link reaches a high enough percentage, though there are also Pokémon which evolve through other conditions such as the use of specific items. Warlords can also establish links with Pokémon other than the one they started with, though only one can be used by each Warlord in a given battle at a time.
    The game makes use of the seventeen Pokémon types and their respective weaknesses, resistances, and immunities. Pokémon also have various Abilities, many the same as in the main series games, as well as some unique new additions. Warlords also have Warlord Powers that can be used once per battle, which have various effects such as powering up or healing Pokémon. Warlords can also equip items, which can provide additional effects such as stat boosts or can be used during battle."

    I never thought I would be interested in a PKMN game ever, trust me, I'm not a huge fan of "gotta catch 'em all" but since this one is infused with SRPG elements I can't let this pass. Dear June the 18th, I implore you please come swiftly.

    I still recall the days of pessimism where they all thought this game would never be officially be translated.

    And then, we get the news it gets translated.

    Buying it for real this coming June. My friend who is more into the Japanese warlords is already excited about me getting it. *flees*

    That is "Pokemon X Nobunga's Ambition" in japanese. It came out not too long ago, and from other tempers around here, it sounds pretty good.

    Yeah I know. But why not make it a branch off of the series? Instead of a spin off?

    It's a crossover with another existing series.

    Would you actually have bought it if it wasn't a spinoff though?

    This. For those who don't know, this game is a crossover between Pokemon and Tecmo Koei's Nobunaga's Ambition/Samurai Warriors games. I can't think of a time in which a crossover game/series was canon for any of the properties involved.
