The six-part manga adaptation of the Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition game will be posted for free on Niconico Manga, the comic counterpart to the Nico Nico Douga video service, starting on March 16. Launch Nanatsumu (Maoyū 4-Koma: Mukaitemasen yo, Maō-sama) is drawing the Pokémon + Nobunaga no Yabō: Ranse no Iro-Emaki (Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition: Ranse's Color Picture Scroll) omnibus manga.
The game itself, which combines the Pokémon franchise and Tecmo KOEI's Nobunaga's Ambition strategy role-playing game series, will ship for the Nintendo DS system on March 17. The story is set in Ranse, a wartorn hegemony split into 17 states. The player will assume the role of a military leader of the Hajime state and devise strategies against Nobunaga and other warriors inspired by real-life historical figures. Each commander is linked to a partner Pokémon during battles.
