KOEI TECMO Europe Invites Strategists to Follow Their Aspirations By Re-Creating Japanese History

Hertfordshire, 5th June 2018 – KOEI TECMO Europe is proud to announce this week’s release of Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi – available for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and digitally for Windows PC via Steam®. Players can create their own legend through their own custom character or lead a notable warlord from the pivotal time in Japanese history to serve under, and eventually succeed, their favourite figures of Japan’s history!

With Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi’s Resolve System, each move will have to be considered by the player. The system introduces a set of aspirations, all of which decide how an officer will act in a given situation – accomplishing an officer’s ambitions will prove worthwhile as it will unlock bonuses that will improve the player’s playthrough situation.

Strategist will experience the Sengoku Era of Japan – a period where regional lords fiercely fought for supremacy, leading with a variety of their own ambitions. 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. Utilise the introduced two-part turn-based battle system: The Planning Phase pauses the action so that players can strategise their next move and, when ready, the Execution Phase commences and the battle unfolds in real-time. Before the actual battle starts players will be able to utilise different formations and tactics while guessing which ones the enemy will use – initiating the best mix to unleash a devastating blow to the opposing army.

Those who purchase Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi during the first four weeks of launch can get an extra scenario, “Nobunaga Besieged”; an alternative character profile design for a selection of characters; a character profile set called “Princess Warriors”; and a new character design for Megohime: “Megohime Officer Facial Graphic”.
