Nintendo Co. this week released new functionality available in Pokemon Conquest for the Nintendo DS.
In the title, users have the ability to link Pokemon to Warriors. Compatibility is noted with a Bronze, Silver, or Gold indicator. A Perfect Link will establish a 100 percent bond with the player and subsequently evolve into more powerful Pokemon.
In addition, Warlords can transform to more powerful forms based on usage in battle.
Also, users can enter passwords to create an outbreak of specific Pokemon to allow the ability to link with hard-to-find Pokemon.
Finally, new episodes for Pokemon Conquest will be available for download via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
Pokemon Conquest, to be sold June 18, includes more than 200 Pokemon, many from the Pokemon White and Pokemon Black Version games.
Developed by Tecmo Koei Games Co., Ltd, the 2D strategy title allows users to recruit Warrior allies to strengthen a kingdom.
In the title, users must conquer 17 regions to unite the kingdom and save the Ransei region from Nobunaga.
Users can recruit fallen warlords and their Pokemon, and strengthen their army by linking Pokemon. Each warlord will have a special ability to aid in battle.
Each kingdom will include a unique theme, including the fire-themed kingdom of Ignis in which water-based Pokemon will be the most effective.
The final game includes turn-based battles, six-on-six battles, changing battle conditions, and compatibility with the Nintendo 3DS.
