UPDATE: The Official Website has launched!
The Pokémon Company were set to make a surprise announcement at JUMP FESTA, during their first year of attending the event. The event has finished and revealed quite a shocking announcement – Pokémon x Nobunaga’s Ambition – a DS crossover between Pokémon and Tecmo Koei’s Nobunaga’s Ambition series of tactical role playing games set around Japan’s Sengoku period. The task of the game is to achieve the ultimate goal of warlord Oda Nobunaga (hence the name) – conquest and unification of Japan. In this game though, instead of Japan, your target for conquest and unification is the region of Ranse.
Also, the game is for the Nintendo DS, proving that there is still life in the console and will be out in Japan in Spring 2012! Although we have yet to see any screenshots of the game, there are quite a few promotional pictures:

What do you think of this shock announcement? Will this make it outside of Japan like Pokémon Mystery Dungeon did?
