Nobunaga’s Ambition On PS4 Looks As Ambitious As Before

By Eugene . January 11, 2014 . 3:29pm


Fight for him or oppose him, if you so choose, in Nobunaga’s Ambition: Creation. But one can’t deny this is one of the most “realistic”of the various games that focus on the Sengoku Warring Periods part of Japan’s history. We’ve previously noted that it will be updated and coming to PlayStation 4 as a launch title. Now you can check out a video of how the game looks with some improved graphics and gameplay.


Admittedly, those are some very clear graphics for what seems to be a very deep tactical game. It seems you can zoom out during battles for a very tactical overview, or zoom all the way in to watch your men fight and die for the glory of their lord.


While the game itself technically isn’t new—it came out last year for Windows and the PlayStation 3—it is one of the few simulation games with a deep and well-researched history of the period as well as a natural-looking vibe when players construct additional buildings and sections to their realm.


Nobunaga’s Ambition: Creation is coming out on the PlayStation 4 February 22nd, and is out now on PC and PlayStation 3.

    “deep tactical game”

    Calling tactics games “strategy” games is a common error, but I think this is the first time I’ve seen someone call a strategy game a tactics game..

    • Crevox

      Strategy games are tactical.

      • WyattEpp

        They’re orthogonal concepts. Strategy games without detailed moment-to-moment decisions regarding a single incident are possible, as are tactical games without long-term decisions that effect no immediate change on the situation at hand.

    • Akuosa

      You can call FIFA a deep tactical game if you think it involves deep tactics, that doesn’t mean you’re saying it’s a tactics game.

    • Odin

      Considering they can be used interchangeably as synonyms, I think the majority of people would disagree with you.

      • SeventhEvening

        Except they aren’t synonyms. Strategy is typically larger scale and about securing victory while tactics are how you carry out the plans (of the strategy) on the field. Nobunaga’s Ambition is a strategy game where you have to plan long, detailed military campaigns. Disgaea is a tactical game where you execute plans on a battle field where the consequences of the battle are more or less reset between battles.

        The two styles of games are radically different and the dictionary definition of the two words are not the same either. Just because it is a common mistake to use them interchangeably doesn’t mean that it is a good idea.

    Next gen HD moustache!!!!

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    It’s nice to see a complex strategy game with beautiful visuals. Specially considering the standard set by other games in the genre:

    BTW I actually like Daisenryaku but yikes, it’s not a pretty game in any sense.

  • KnifeAndFork

    Meh….Kingdom Under Fire 2 looks far more impressive

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      Except that that game has been in development hell for years.

      • KnifeAndFork

        Nope. It’s confirmed to be coming out for the PS4

        • kazehiro_himura

          They’re working on KUF 2 since 2007…. it was first announced on PC and 360… then PC and PS3, now is a PC and PS4 game. Also Nobunaga and KUF2 are way to different to compare… While KUF focuses on real time battles and the strategy is more an extra, Nobunaga is a political/strategy game, with heavy emphasis on player choices.

  • pimpalicious

    Too bad it won’t be in english.

  • Just imagine a pokemon conquest sequel that looked like this.

  • ronin4life

    … I still really want to import this for my PC.


  • JohnNiles

    Ohhh, so hyped. I hope they’ve improved upon their battle AI since the PS2 games.

    When I heard the famous intro being sung, I thought they would break into a rap for some reason. >_>

  • Masa

    i love the look of the characters and how realistic they are, wish they made a samurai warriors where the charcters looked like that.

  • serpentear

    Any chances this’ll out on Us?

  • 하세요

    I can’t even see this man’s face anymore without a Pokemon next to it.

    • Ric Vazquez

      Sad truth XD

  • Randgriz

    Alot of Nobunaga stuffs this year..

  • Frank Bautista

    I always found it interesting that these games are still being made. It’s one of the few non-heavy hitter franchises from the NES/Famicon era to still be around today. You can’t say that for a LOT of franchises. It’s actually kinda COOL to see these games still getting made!

  • lyhthegreat .

    wow,it actually looks and plays like shogun…
