    There'll be a livestreamed press conference about the game next week Thursday on NicoNico.

    Also, Toei's strategy games are supposed to be quite good so I wouldn't really worry too much about it. There's a good chance they'll simplify it due to the target audience like Chunsoft did with the Pokemon version of the Mystery Dungeon games though.

    It is for the DS because of all the people that still have a DS not 3DS and the 3DS is backward capable with DS games (plus when the b/w games were still unreleased/still in japan I remember that bubapedia said that the b/w games were made to late to be made on the 3DS but it gets better graphics on the 3DS).
    Either way I'm excited about this game.

    Oh and apparently this was originally going to be a Pokemon Musou game. So Pokemon x Dynasty Warriors @_@ They decided to do the crossover with Nobunga's Ambition instead.

    this is absolutely wonderful news, the only thing holding back my enjoyment of this game was the language barrier, the gameplay is solid as far as i'm concerned, while the graphics and art are just top notch, looks like nintendo is paying attention to the strong international demand for this game

    Okay, what is this game exactly about? What is the goal/ style of gameplay?

    I can't find a good answer.

    It's a Pokemon-themed JRPG

    EDIT: or is it an SRPG? i really don't remember the difference

    anyway you have pokemon on little grids and you kill the enemy pokemon bouncing around the grids

    EDIT2: Okay it's an SRPG

    I wasn't really that excited about this, based on the original ideas and stuff. This style of game hasn't been something I've played before. I've spent some time looking at the videos in this thread though, and it does look like I'll probably end up buying it as it does look quite appealing.

    They couldnt have released it a few weeks earlier to give me something to do when I start travelling this summer though could they? Just thoughtless in my opinion...

    Hey this is awesome news. Funnily enough I was just thinking yesterday that this game WASN'T going to be localised. Never have I been happier to be proved wrong.

    I was hoping that they wouldn't change the names of the people in this game, and so far, they have not. Nobunaga's still Nobunaga, Kenshin is still Kenshin, Shingen's still Shingen... It would've been kind of a blow if they changed the names for American audiences since these Warlords actually existed (though obviously, Nobunaga Oda didn't unify Japan by commanding a black dragon that shoots lightning IRL).

    But those fears have been extinguished.

    Looks good so far. I haven't bought many 3ds games lately so I'll probably pick this up after I look through a few more gameplay videos

    Wait

    What do you mean he didn't

    Anywhales, I am totally going to get this game, and I haven't even bothered to look at the video. I absolutely love this genre of game, and of course I love pokemon, so there's no doubt this game'll be right up my alley.

    From what I hear, this game's an easy first SRPG for those unfamiliar with the genre.

    Doubtless the pundits will buy it up however.

    So, do you make your Pokemon battle like usual or do you battle alongside your Pokemon?

    I played the real game long before this was released, and I really liked it (the version for the original Game Boy.) I was really excited for this, but soon became very disappointed at how much they dumbed it all down. Instead of the whole grand strategy setup with maintaining your fief and those you conquer, it's basically just battle after battle in a Disgaea-like (but worse) environment. I suppose I should expect as much from Pokémon spinoffs...

    I spent about an hour watching a walkthrough of this game, and I'm very excited. I haven't played most of the non-mainline Pokemon games (Snap, Ranger, Pinball, TCG etc) but this RPG style has me really excited. Definitely will be going on opening day to pick it up.
