Koei Tecmo describes the game:
In NOBUNAGA'S AMBITION: Awakening, players will experience the life of a daimyō, a powerful Japanese leader, in the troubled times of the Warring States Period, 16th century Japan. As the head of their own clan, players will have to make the best decisions in in key areas ranching from the economy, to diplomacy, and military might in hopes of eventually unifying the country. To do so, they will be supported by retainers, AI officers who think and act on their own judgement. Retainers will provide submissions to the players to help them plan their battle strategy.
The siege feature returns in the game. Unlike in previous entries, sieges take place on a single map with different terrain types and castles or castle towns. Landmarks and achievements will affect strategy throughout the game. In addition, there will be a variety of scenarios, events, policies, and editing functions.
