The Craziest Pokemon Game You've Ever Seen

Also available for : DS

When we first heard about Pokemon + Nobunaga's Ambition, we honestly had a good, hearty laugh about it here at IGN, thinking it must be a joke or something. But indeed, this unusual DS crossover between the monster catching series and Tecmo Koei's strategy series, Nobunaga's Ambition, is the real deal.<br/><br/>Coming out on March 17 in Japan (no word yet on a North American release), a few new details have surfaced about this inexplicable mash-up. In addition to a Japanese trailer (which you can watch below), we also know that you can play as either a male or female, and that Eevee is your starter Pokemon. The game's world will apparently be split into 17 kingdoms, each home to a famous Nobunaga's Ambition general and their Pokemon companion.<br/><br/> <object id="vid_3e0d717edfd3a5d3fdf53b2afe1c9e32" class="ign-videoplayer" width="468" height="270" data="http://media.ign.com/ev/prod/embed.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="movie" value="http://media.ign.com/ev/prod/embed.swf"/><param name="" value="true"/><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"/><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000"/><param name="flashvars" value="url=http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/01/13/pokemon-nobunagas-ambition-japanese-trailer?objectid=707323"/><param name="wmode" value="opaque"/></object> <div style="width:480px"><a target="_blank" href="http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/01/13/pokemon-nobunagas-ambition-japanese-trailer?objectid=707323"><center>Pokemon + Nobunaga's Ambition - Japanese Trailer</center></a></div><br/><br/>You can take a look at some screenshots from the game at our <a target="_blank" href="http://media.ds.ign.com/media/125/125156/imgs_1.html"><b>Pokemon + Nobunaga's Ambition image gallery</b></a>.
