Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension focuses on one of the most provocative and complex times in Japan where myriads of military officers and smaller lords fought for domination over the land in some of the most epic battles and dramatic events in Japanese history. 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.
Keeping true to the brand’s Grand Strategy pedigree, Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension allows for deep immersion into the development of strongholds and armies and gives the extra option of starting the game from the position of an officer and slowly ascend through the ranks to become an important warlord or the overlord of Japan!
‘Ascension’ will also offer history aficionados the opportunity to experience that same era as a historically accurate simulation game. Featuring a wide array of characters to select from (over 2000), players are able to take control of their favourite officers and lords throughout the title, incorporate their own play styles, and experience historically accurate events. Unique events and exclusive missions will be available for a number of well-known figures, with a special focus on Yukimura Sanada, the famous Japanese samurai warrior from the Sengoku period many called ‘the strongest warrior in Japan’. Starting as a retainer at the age of 16, players can follow the historical events and gain a deep level of insight into the life of Yukimura and the challenges he faced during the Sengoku period until his eventual defeat in the Siege of Osaka.
Some other figures that enjoy special tailor made content are feudal lords like Ieyasu Tokugawa, who lived on to become the Shogun at the end of the warring states era; Mitsunari Ishida, who played a pivotal role at the decisive battle of Sekigahara towards the end of the war; Masamune Date, the lord called the ‘One-Eyed Dragon’; and lower lever retainers like Nyosui Kuroda and Morichika Chosokabe whose intriguing stories unfold slowly through the deep drama.
With more information and assets following in the coming weeks, KOEI TECMO Europe released a selection of screenshots featuring the officers within battle, alongside detailed portraits showcasing them in grand poses.
