Nobunaga's Ambition

In honor of KOU SIBUSAWA's 40th anniversary, we have released "Nobunaga's Ambition: Shinsei" as the sixteenth game in our historical simulation game series. For the first time in the series, the player is supported by vassals who think and act on their own initiative, allowing the player to immerse themselves in the game as they journey toward a unified nation together with their vassals. In this new style of game, vassals consider and propose their own strategies, and the player's judgement and skills are put to the test as they select the best possible strategy in the name of the daimyo. In this realistic and dynamic warring states game, the player is able to write their own version of history, making the gameplay challenging yet rewarding.

The historical and very popular series is now available as an MMO strategy simulation game. Players will live through the Warring States period as a feudal lord serving various lords throughout Japan. Players can enjoy the unique MMO experience of striving to develop their power with other players of the same clan, sometimes as reassuring allies against other feudal lords, and sometimes as rivals competing for the same achievements.
