Pokemon Conquest Cometh

3 posts in this topic

We were doubtful it would ever happen - but it seems the Japanese gaming gods have smiled down on us stateside gamers once more. 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 coming to the U.S. as Pokemon Conquest.

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...

    • Valve Confirms Hardware Development
      By Tarquin
      A job listing on Valve’s site confirms that the company will begin developing hardware. A listing for an industrial designer says “Valve is traditionally a software company. Open platforms like the PC and Mac are important to us, as they enable us and our partners to have a robust and direct relationship with customers. We’re frustrated by the lack of innovation in the computer hardware space though, so we’re jumping in.”
      The post continues, adding that Valve is interested in creating new user experiences. “Even basic input, the keyboard and mouse, haven’t really changed in any meaningful way over the years,” it says. “There’s a real void in the marketplace, and opportunities to create compelling user experiences are being overlooked.”
      The post specifies that the position will add “expertise in product design and manufacturing, ergonomics, usability, aesthetics, and surfacing.” Candidates are also expected to have “6+ years of professional experience shipping world-class, high-tech hardware products” and “a thorough understanding of product design principles.”



      Speculation about Valve’s entry into the hardware market has been flying since March, when rumors suggested Valve was working on a Steam Box console. Valve later debunked the rumors, commenting that the world is “a long way from Valve shipping out any sort of hardware.” Later, a listing for an electronics engineer to work on "platform hardware" emerged, as well as a blog post discussing wearable computing.
