New Pokemon game is a Nobunaga's Ambition crossover, really

We promise we didn't photoshop this picture of a Pokemon and Nobunaga's Ambition crossover game, but only because there was no way that we would have thought to combine these two franchises, like ever. For more proof of our innocence, there is an official Pokemon + Nobunaga's Ambition website with a trailer for the game, apparently slated for a 2012 release on Nintendo DS in Japan.

We have to admit, the trailer does a good job of making the two games look like one, with individual Pokemon seamlessly matching a few Nobunaga's Ambition characters -- however, we're not sure how many girls want to be equated with something called a "Jigglypuff."
