Koei Tecmo To Release Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence On PS3
Koei Tecmo America is definitely trying to make 2015 a packed year thanks to all the current and future releases in their catalog. The company got in touch with us to reveal that Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence will be launched on PlayStation 3 on September 1st!
Having recently 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, marks the series’ return to North America after 6 years of absence.
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. Players take the mantle of a Daimyo, a feudal lord of the Sengoku era (15th-16th century Japan), and fight for the great ideal of uniting the war-ridden country under one rule, thus becoming the first Shogun.
As a fan of strategy games (and of the Nobunaga’s Ambition series, going all the way back to the NES!), I’m definitely looking forward to this new entry in the long-running series. Are you buying this game?
