Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition, a spin-off crossover between Pokémon and Nobunaga's Ambition, has been confirmed for an English release under the title Pokémon Conquest. The game is set to be released in the United States on June 18; no European or Australian release has been confirmed.

Pokémon Conquest combines elements of the Pokémon series and the "Nobunaga's Ambition" series.

After its release in Japan less than a month ago, the Western fandom have been waiting to see if the game would receive an English release; while Pokémon, some doubted it would receive one due to the game's heavy focus on Japanese history and the small number of Nobunaga's Ambition titles that have been localised in the past. While the title has been changed, the official announcement does reference the Nobunaga's Ambition series.

In Pokémon Conquest, players take the role of Warlords, battling other Warriors, Warlords, and Pokémon in the Ransei region. Players choose between a male and female character to play as, and start out with Eevee. Much like the Pokémon Ranger series, additional content can be downloaded through Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, and additional Pokémon can be accessed through passwords. The game features Pokémon from all five generations.
