For years now, a steady stream of new Pokémon games have been coming out. If you've played one, you basically know what you are getting yourself into. Not this time.

Nintendo is teaming up with Tecmo Koei for a totally different Pocket Monster experience, one that features samurai warriors, and is called Pokémon Plus Nobunaga's Ambition.

The game is, according to Famitsu, a "historical simulator", and looks to be the latest in Koei's long line of Nobunaga's Ambition role-playing simulation video games.

Nobunaga's Ambition titles are set during the Sengoku feudal period in Japan.

Recently, Koei has done a series of collaborations with other studios to make titles like Gundam Musou and One Piece Kaizoku Musou.


Pokémon Plus Nobunaga's Ambition is slated for the Nintendo DS and will be out next Spring in Japan. Further details are expected at a later date.
