Recent Articles: Pokemon Conquest
Ever wonder what would happen if you took the historical accuracy of Dynasty Warriors, mixed it with the characters and style of Pokemon, and turned it into a strategy RPG akin to Nobunaga’s Ambition? You’d get Pokemon Conquest, the latest addition to the popular Pokemon franchise. It’s time to fight your way through the 17 kingdoms of Ransei and unite them all under one banner. The real question I found myself wondering before playing it was: will this be a fun deviation from the typical Pokemon gameplay? Or will this eclectic attempt be a total dud? (more…)
With editions on seven different platforms, Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes rose to the top of The NPD Group’s monthly list of bestselling games. The remainder of the list was split between new releases, May holdovers, and Fall 2011 games that are still popular.
There were only a handful of new games available in June with Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (#2), Pokemon Conquest (#7), and The Amazing Spider-Man (#10) all earning spots in the top ten. Grasshopper’s Lollipop Chainsaw didn’t make the cut, continuing Suda 51′s lack of success at the register.
An astounding four games from Fall 2011 continue to sell strongly enough to make the top ten: NBA 2K12 (#5), Batman: Arkham City (#6, boosted by the newly released Game of the Year Edition), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (#8), and Battlefield 3 (#9). I’m sure it helps that all were among the best-reviewed games of last year.
As a whole, game and hardware sales are down 29% from June 2011, according to Joystiq.
A complete list of last month’s best-selling games can be found after the break. (more…)
This week’s new releases are for the kids as Pokemon Conquest (that wild Pokemon/Nobunaga’s Ambition crossover on the DS), Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (3DS, DS, PC, PS3, Vita, Wii, Xbox 360), and the game adaptation of Pixar’s Brave (DS, PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360) will all be available in stores this Tuesday.
Hit the jump for a complete look at this week’s new releases. (more…)
When Nintendo first announced a Pokemon and Nobunaga’s Ambition crossover, I just chalked it up to the Japanese game industry and their love of bizarre crossovers. But I’m still in shock that the game will be making it to America on June 18 as Pokemon Conquest. I guess I shouldn’t be though. After all, I think it was Einstein who first posited the mathematical proof “Pokemon + DS = $$$$$.”
So to continue getting fans hyped for a game featuring mythical monsters taking part in feudal Japanese warfare, Nintendo has released a ton of new details on the story and gameplay mechanics of Pokemon Conquest, which you can find after the break. (more…)
