‘Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi’ Announced For North America This June

Nobunaga’s Ambition is celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2018, and to mark the occasion, Koei Tecmo is releasing a new game in the storied franchise, Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi. The Nobunaga’s Ambition franchise has taken gamers to the Sengoku Era of Japan’s history and remains one of the best Real Time Strategy games ever created. This meshing of commanding massive feudal armies against real historical events has created a beloved franchise that continues to inspire players after nearly four decades.

Koei Tecmo issued a press release about Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi, detailing what the new game will offer long time fans and new players to the historical epic.

“Marking the series’ 35th anniversary, Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi remains true to the long-running franchise’s historical simulation gameplay; allowing players to relive some of the most epic battles and notable events of the Sengoku Era in Japan. The Sengoku Era was a period where regional lords fiercely fought for supremacy, to claim dominance and unite the lands. Players will have to exploit a wide breadth of tactical options to create fresh strategies that allow new ways to gain an advantage over the opponent. Strategies do not only focus on the Military Campaigns, but also on managing the Production Facilities and Trade Routes to continuously expand territory and increase the strength of the army.
“These elements are further enhanced through the introduction of the Resolve System; where each officer has their own set of aspirations that will depict how they will act in a given situation and gameplay will change accordingly, with new tactics needed to accommodate opposing or similar viewpoints. With the Resolve System officers will be showcase a more human and personal feel, providing players a deeper insight into the historical simulation the series is renowned for.”


In addition to the announcement, a new trailer was also released, which can be seen below. Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi is scheduled for release in the west on June 5, 2018 for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. We hope that a Nintendo Switch version will be announced at a later date, as there is no better system to play a game of this scope on than a fully-featured handheld like the Switch. Stay tuned for any additional announcements and for further coverage of the game.
