Koei Tecmo America describes the game:
Marking the series' 35th anniversary, Nobunaga's Ambition: Taishi remains true to the long-running franchise's historical simulation gameplay; allowing players to relive some of the most epic battles and notable events of the Sengoku Era in Japan. The Sengoku Era was a period where regional lords fiercely fought for supremacy, to claim dominance and unite the lands. Players will have to exploit a wide breadth of tactical options to create fresh strategies that allow new ways to gain an advantage over the opponent. Strategies do not only focus on the Military Campaigns, but also on managing the Production Facilities and Trade Routes to continuously expand territory and increase the strength of the army.
These elements are further enhanced through the introduction of the Resolve System; where each officer has their own set of aspirations that will depict how they will act in a given situation and gameplay will change accordingly, with new tactics needed to accommodate opposing or similar viewpoints. With the Resolve System officers will be showcase a more human and personal feel, providing players a deeper insight into the historical simulation the series is renowned for.
The game shipped for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC in Japan on November 30.
