* The mere announcement of such a unlikely crossover game between one [[CashCowFranchise behemoth of a]] [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} franchise]] and one [[NoExportForYou mostly obscure/unknown-outside-of-Japan]] [[VideoGame/NobunagasAmbition franchise]]. The fans went wild, particularly the ''Pokémon'' side due to the potential for DarkerAndEdgier elements!
** Yeah, but ''Nobunaga's Ambition'' is usually a [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] series, so... whaddaya say? "The ''Western'' title of the game is ''VideoGame/PokemonConquest''"?!? You mean... '''LOCALIZATION?!?''' ''Heck'' yes! Cue the internet ''exploding''. Repeatedly.
*** That aversion just got averted : France won't be getting the game.
** A minor one, but despite the ''Nobunaga's Ambition'' series being relatively unknown in the U.S. anyway, and the English title shifting exposure more towards the ''Pokémon'' side of things, the blurb of ''Pokémon Conquest'' still gives the ''Nobunaga's Ambition'' series a proper mention on the back cover of the game's packaging.
** It got a '''9''' from IGN!!! And they're normally really harsh on spinoffs!
