Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence Has Store-Exclusive Pre-Order Bonuses



Koei Tecmo have announced pre-order bonuses for Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence—two game scenarios that are exclusive to GameStop and Amazon/Best Buy in North America.


The first, available exclusively through GameStop, is called ‘Rise of the God of War’ and tells the tale of Kagetora Nagao, fourth son of Tamekage Nagao, who replaces his weak brother as head of the Nagao clan. When the liege lords of his clan are unwilling to recognize such a young and inexperienced youth he must force them into submission and prove his superiority as a commander. This is the origin story of Kenshin, the general who became known in Japan as the ‘God of War.’


The second scenario is exclusive to Amazon and Best Buy, and is called ‘Oda – Tokugawa Alliance’. It follows the stories of two young men,Takechiyo Matsudaira and Kipposhi, who grow up to be two of the most significant figures of their time, Ieyasu Tokugawa and Nobunaga Oda. This scenario explores their time growing up together and sheds some light behind the forging of their strong alliance and friendship.


Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence will be released in North America on September 1st and in Europe on September 4th. The game will be available on PC, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.
