Nobunaga’s Ambition: Creation is getting a Western release as Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence on PS3, PS4 and Steam.
Koei Tecmo Games made the announcement on their Facebook page with series producer Kenichi Ogasawara adding “It is my distinct pleasure to be able to present the newest installment of “NOBUNAGA’S AMBITION” to our western audience. I hope gamers will enjoy this one-of-a-kind strategy game that has been refined through 30 years of experience. Don’t miss it!”
You will play as feudal lord Daimyo, in the Sengoku era, with the aim of uniting the country under one rule and becoming the first Shogun, which sounds pretty gosh darn epic.
Talking about gameplay, the post on Koei describes how players need to master Creation, Diplomacy and War:
- In ‘Creation’ they are called to build up their clan’s standing, deal with everyday issues like building farms & roads, growing the economy, entering trade agreements with neighbouring fiefs etc.
- ‘Diplomacy’ is a playground for cultivating diplomatic relationships, employing spies, creating alliances, gaining the loyalty of subordinate officers and growing in strength via marriage, oaths of fealty and treaties.
- Finally to succeed in ‘War’ players must train troops, level up officers according to the clan’s needs, fortify defences, strategically position armies and attack (or defend) to further their goals and grow their dominion.
You’ll also have the option to play as an historical character or to create a custom alternative.
Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence is coming to PS3, PS4, and Steam on September 4 in Europe and September 1 in North America.
