Pushing on ahead
NOBUNAGA’S AMBITION: Awakening, an updated version of Nobunaga’s Ambition: Rebirth, is getting a western localization. The turn-based strategy RPG from developer Kou Shibusawa and publisher Koei Tecmo will be released for Nintendo Switch worldwide on July 20th, 2023. Today brings us a new ‘March’ trailer, which you can watch above.
Look across the land and choose your marching route carefully. The route may be beset with obstacles such as roads too narrow for a large troop, or encounting an enemy fortress. By choosing the wrong route, you could lead your army into a devastating situation. Although your retainers will make their own decisions based on the situation, it’s sometimes necessary to give them orders to lead them.
In NOBUNAGA’S AMBITION: Awakening, players will experience the life of a daimyō, a powerful Japanese leader, in the troubled times of the Warring States Period, 16th century Japan. As the head of their own clan, players will have to make the best decisions in in key areas ranching from the economy, to diplomacy, and military might in hopes of eventually unifying the country. To do so, they will be supported by retainers, AI officers who think and act on their own judgement. Retainers will provide submissions to the players to help them plan their battle strategy.
In addition, NOBUNAGA’S AMBITION: Awakening will include various features that befit the 40th Anniversary of the series, including landmarks and achievements that will affect the strategy. Players will also enjoy a large variety of scenarios, events, policies, and more, as well as elements from the previous titles such as an editing function that will allows them to change officer status, background music and scenarios, or create new clans.
