First look at Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi

The latest entry in the history simulation series.

Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi

Famitsu has gone up with its first online preview of Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi, the newly announced entry in the history simulation game series for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC.

Here’s Famitsu’s blurb about the series and new game:

The Sengoku period. An era where Daimyo throughout Japan ruled over people based on their will. Sometimes they work together, sometimes their wills collide , and they work to expand their nation. Among these Daimyo was Oda Nobunaga, the “Demon King of the Sixth Heaven,” who boundlessly approached the unification of the entire country. However, the dream that he held dear disappeared like an illusion when Akechi Mitsuhide betrayed him.

Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi

400 years after the Honnoji Incident, a young developer named Koei, who understands Nobunaga’s will, created a game. That game was Nobunaga’s Ambition, and it has since gained many fans. In that same game, many players became Nobunaga and achieved the unification of the country. For Nobunaga and the developers, it was the moment when the great “will” that the two held dear was fully realized.

Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi

This winter, a new title will be released under the brand name and developer Kou Shibusawa. That title is Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi. The series’ latest title focuses on the “will” of Nobunaga and the other Daimyo.

The concept of this title is “will.” In the game, it is an element that exists within and brings individuality to each warlord. You’ll feel the reality of the Warring States period through the existence of “will.”

Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi is due out for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC this winter.
