nobunaga's ambition: sphere of influence


KOEI TECMO America today announced pre-order bonus content for upcoming strategy/historical simulation title Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence. The game will be available for the PlayStation 4, digitally via the Playstation Network Store for the PlayStation 3, and for PC via Steam on September 1, 2015.

KOEI TECMO has announced two special DLC chapters for early adopters of the latest entry in the beloved strategy saga. The first DLC scenario, available exclusively through GameStop, is called ‘Rise of the God of War’ and tells the tale of Kagetora Nagao, fourth son of Tamekage Nagao, who replaces his weak brother as head of the Nagao clan. When the liege lords of his clan are unwilling to recognize such a young and inexperienced youth he must force them into submission and prove his superiority as a commander. This is the origin story of Kenshin, the general who became known in Japan as the ‘God of War.’

The second pre-order scenario for Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence, available for those who pre-order from Amazon and Best Buy, is called ‘Oda – Tokugawa Alliance’ and follows the stories of two young men, Takechiyo Matsudaira and Kipposhi, who grow up to be two of the most significant figures of their time, Ieyasu Tokugawa and Nobunaga Oda. This scenario explores their time growing up together and sheds some light behind the forging of their strong alliance and friendship.

All of this talk is great, but for those who want to see this feudal game of conquest in action, KOEI TECMO America has also released a first trailer for the game, which you can find below, that highlights the realistic, dynamic, and dramatic nature of this extremely intricate, deep, and meticulous strategy game.

Check out the latest trailer for Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence below:


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, and become Shogun. Providing the choice to play as either a historical personality or a uniquely created character, Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence is both a full-scale historical simulation and a bona fide strategy title, and offers an extremely wide pallet of choices for the player to shape the world as they please.
