No, no news on Pandora's Tower - but we did find out today that the Japanese strategy RPG crossover Pokemon + Nobunaga's Ambition will be <a target="_blank" href="http://ds.ign.com/articles/122/1222268p1.html">coming to the U.S. as Pokemon Conquest</a>.<br/><br/>The game is an insane/insanely awesome crossover between the popular Pokemon series and Tecmo Koei's strategy series, Nobunaga's Ambition. It will feature turn-based, six-on-six battles utilizing Pokemon type strengths and weaknesses, and the world will be split into 17 kingdoms, each home to a famous Nobunaga's Ambition general and their Pokemon companion. Below you'll find the first U.S. trailers and screenshots for this title, which will hit store shelves on June 18. Take a look, and imagine the possibilities...<br/><br/> <object id="vid_910bbc8b7b0b813d01a037cc024e2d1a" class="ign-videoplayer" width="468" height="286" data="http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/core/swf/IGNPlayer.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="movie" value="http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/core/swf/IGNPlayer.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/2012/04/04/pokemon-conquest-announcement-trailer"/><param name="wmode" value="opaque"/></object> <div style="width:480px"><a target="_blank" href="http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/04/04/pokemon-conquest-announcement-trailer"><center>Pokemon Conquest - Announcement Trailer</center></a></div><br/><br/> <object id="vid_63e4b167aadf798e490172ea854a3967" class="ign-videoplayer" width="468" height="286" data="http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/core/swf/IGNPlayer.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="movie" value="http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/core/swf/IGNPlayer.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/2012/04/04/pokemon-conquest-intro-video"/><param name="wmode" value="opaque"/></object> <div style="width:480px"><a target="_blank" href="http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/04/04/pokemon-conquest-intro-video"><center>Pokemon Conquest - Intro Video</center></a></div><br/><br/>And now for a few screenshots...<br/><br/><img src="http://dsmedia.ign.com/ds/image/article/122/1222303/pokemon-conquest-20120404113433673.jpg" /><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><center><hr="75%"></center><br/><br/><img src="http://dsmedia.ign.com/ds/image/article/122/1222303/pokemon-conquest-20120404113433252.jpg" /><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><center><hr="75%"></center><br/><br/><img src="http://dsmedia.ign.com/ds/image/article/122/1222303/pokemon-conquest-20120404113434446.jpg" /><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><center><hr="75%"></center><br/><br/><img src="http://dsmedia.ign.com/ds/image/article/122/1222303/pokemon-conquest-20120404113502408-000.jpg" /><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><center><hr="75%"></center><br/><br/><img src="http://dsmedia.ign.com/ds/image/article/122/1222303/pokemon-conquest-20120404113409552-000.jpg" /><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><center><hr="75%"></center><br/><br/><img src="http://dsmedia.ign.com/ds/image/article/122/1222303/pokemon-conquest-20120404113415572-000.jpg" /><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><DIV CLASS="IGNE_divider"></DIV><br/><br/>What do you think?
