Nobunaga’s Ambition: Creation Brings Something a Bit Different to PS4

There are no shortage of action games in the PlayStation 4’s lineup at the moment, and that observation expands to the release day offering in Japan. Fortunately, publisher Tecmo Koei is planning something a little different to complement its customary offering of Dynasty Warriors, confirming that historical strategy game Nobunaga’s Ambition: Creation will also be available alongside the console in the Land of the Rising Sun.

The title – which is already out on the PC and the PlayStation 3 – is set during the Sengoku Warring period of the Eastern nation’s history, which occurred during the 15th and 17th century. The re-release will not only run at 60 frames-per-second on Sony’s supercharged hardware, but will also employ the touchpad to allow you to scroll around its gigantic maps. It’s not the only simulation game to tackle the period, but apparently this is one of the more accurately researched.

Nevertheless, you probably shouldn’t expect a Western version. While the Shogun: Total War games are popular overseas, we suspect that the amount of text in this would make it a headache to localise. Don’t worry, though, you could always boot up a stream from the ‘Live from PlayStation’ application on 22nd February and pretend that you’re playing. Go forth, brave soldier – you have an empire to crush.

Kinda meh IMO but still can't wait to see some Samurai Warriors 4 gameplay.

All I want from Tecmo-Koei is a new Uncharted Waters game. A next-gen one that combines Uncharted Waters with Assassins Creed Black Flag graphics and gameplay (not the stupid story of course). Heavy player customization, lots of exploration. Crew members that gain experience points for every adventure (on land exploration, battle, sea exploration) they survive and once again, lots of player customization.
I'd like to be able to attack ports too, and with that I can see charging a town Dynasty warriors style. And the hero character you choose and customize gains various skills, like wall running etc..

I think with Koei, and Tecmo working together they could shake the dust off and produce a cool new Uncharted Waters.
