Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension Rises In The West




Another installment in Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence is headed to North America and Europe. Koei Tecmo will bring Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension to North American and European PlayStation 4s and PCs. Originally, it appeared on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC in Japan. It is a stand-alone follow-up to Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence, which was released last September for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.


Once again, Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension tasks players with making strategic moves in the Sengoku Era. You get to watch Japan as it is fractured, clans are established, and shoguns rise. It has over 2,000 characters available in-game, with characters like Yukimura Sanada, Ieyasu Tokugawa,  getting their own events and missions. Officer Play allows you to begin your run as an officer, working your way up to Castle Lord or Daimyo, for the first time. Both Garden Politics and Evolved Battle have come to the game. The former lets you become lord of a castle, while the latter lets you play as a single offer retainer in the field, completing Combat Quest missions during each fight. This entry also brings full-scale Siege Battles and Naval Battles, so you can go through castle sieges or bigger battles at sea.




Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension will come to the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on October 25, 2016 in North America. A European release will follow on October 28, 2016.
