The Nobunaga’s Ambition series turned 30 years old not too long ago and as part of the celebration, Koei Tecmo announced today that it will be bringing Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence to North America on September 1st, and to Europe on September 4th.
In the Facebook post Koei Tecmo also provided the following description of the game:
Hailed as one of the best installments 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.
This title, centring around creating a realistic, dynamic, and dramatic playing experience, requires a high level of concentration and skill as players will need to master three key verticals in order to become a well-rounded ruler and successfully beat the game: Creation, Diplomacy and War.
Over the series’ 30 year life-span it has appeared on every PlayStation console, as well as consoles as old as the NES. It even had a crossover with Pokemon a few years ago in the form of Pokemon Conquest.
The latest in the series will be releasing on PC via Steam, PS3 and PS4 when it releases this fall.
