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.

Surprisingly many people do not like to be told at length about many of these things so I've taken to you, the internet, to talk at, should you desire to listen.
