Pokemon has had it’s fair share of spin offs with most of them being garbage. The one tried and true Pokemon game type that has stood the test of time is the hardcore RPG type we are all familiar with. Well it looks like that path is being taken to the logical conclusion in the game Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition. That is a translation of the literal title, the plus symbol is not me being lazy, it is the game being Japanese.
Not much is known about the game other than what was shown in the trailer. What we can see looks to be a turn based strategy RPG type of game. Your main character can be either male or female and apparently will have Eevee as a starter Pokemon. It also looks like you will have to fight your way up against other trainers with special or legendary Pokemon in service of the story. Strategy RPG and Pokemon are both right up my alley and I can not wait for this game. Release is slated for Spring 2012 but until then stay tuned to Levelsave for more updates.
P.S. Red or Gold should really have a cameo battle.
