Koei Tecmo released some new gameplay videos from their forthcoming PS3, PS4 and PC release of Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence which will be available in Europe from September 4th 2015. A departure from more action orientated gameplay, there’s a more strategic offering here which the videos do well to showcase.
About Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence:
Having celebrated its 30th year anniversary, ‘Nobunaga’s Ambition’ is one of the longest running franchises for Koei Tecmo Games in Japan, and during its lifetime it has received high praise by an ever-growing fan base across an array of platforms. Now, its latest chapter, ‘Sphere of Influence’, is released in Europe for the first time.
The game is named after one of the most prominent and infamous figures of the Sengoku era (Warring States) of Japanese history, Nobunaga Oda. He fought to realise his dream of a united Japan and a new world. Though he fell before his dream was accomplished he left behind a revolutionary legacy of castle towns, technological improvements, developing culture, modern warfare, a new system of economics etc.
Hailed as one of the best instalments in the franchise’s history, this extremely intricate, deep, and meticulous strategy game is set against a backdrop of a fragmented nation and asks the player to take up the mantle of a Daimyo, a feudal lord of the Sengoku era (15th- 16th century Japan), who will fight for the great ideal of uniting the war-ridden country under one rule, thus becoming the first Shogun.
