Freshly announced, Nobunaga's Ambition: Awakening is campaigning West on PS4 this July. The currently in-development strategy title is the latest entry in Koei Tecmo's long-running series, and has actually been revealed in celebration of the property's 40th anniversary. Now that's what we call a legacy.

It sounds like Awakening will boast all of the tactical depth that you'd expect from the franchise. You'll be free to head your own clan, deciding on its political policies and battlefield strategies. You'll forge relationships with neighbouring warlords, promoting trade or conquering their territories to fund your own goals.

The official press release goes into more detail about one specific addition: "One of the series’ most popular features, siege, also makes its comeback in Nobunaga's Ambition: Awakening, but in an entirely new form. For the first time in the series, sieges will take place on a single map with different types of terrain and totally different castles or castle towns, allowing players to enjoy dynamic sieges and a new level of strategy."

Awakening will be a digital-only release on PS4 when it drops this summer, but will you be joining the march? Gather your forces in the comments section below.
