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.
