‘Pokemon Conquest’ aka ‘Pokemon + Nobunaga’s Ambition’ Coming June 18th!

Pokemon.com has announced that Pokemon + Nobunaga’s Ambition will be released in English as Pokemon Conquest! This after there were doubts the game would be released outside Japan due to its heavy focus on Japanese history and terminology. The region of “Ranse” has been localized to “Ransei” and the bushou have been renamed “Warlords.” The game will be released in the United States on June 18th, only three months after its Japanese release – talk about quick translating!
