Koei Tecmo has announced that they will be releasing Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension in the West in late October. The company will be offering the title at retail and digitally on the PlayStation 4 as well as digitally on PC through Steam in North America on October 25th and in Europe on October 28th. Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension is a stand-alone follow-up to Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence, which was released last September in the West.
The game will highlight some of the most epic battles and notable events of Sengoku Era Japan, when myriads of military officers and lords fought for domination over the land. Players will be able to experience all the events that led from the fracture of the country to the establishments of clans and the forming of alliances before the inevitable clash that led to the emergence of the first Shogunate. Allowing for deeper immersion and insight into these events as well as providing a closer look at the development of strongholds and armies, this game provides players with the extra option to begin the game from the position of an officer and ascend through the ranks to become an important warlord—perhaps even the overlord of Japan.
