While based on Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence, Sengoku Risshiden features a “Military Commanders Play” system that lets players experience the lifetime of a military commander for the first time in the series. As a mere vassal, you’ll aim for success in life, and when you become a daimyo, you’ll assemble superior vassals. You’ll aim for the world and taste “sengoku romance” in a variety of forms.
