*About Nobunaga's Ambition: Rise to Power*
Set during the 16th century, /Nobunaga's Ambition: Rise to Power/ sends
players back in time to the Sengoku (Warring States) period of Feudal
Japan. It was during this time that the visionary Nobunaga Oda assembled
the most advanced military force in Japan, and instituted new policies
that stimulated the growth of the nation's economy.

In /Nobunaga's Ambition: Rise to Power/, players will assume the role of
Nobunaga, or of a rival warlord, in their quest to unite Japan under one
rule. Packed with 7 dramatic scenarios - from the 1551 Struggle for
Power to the events following Nobunaga's death in 1582, /Nobunaga's
Ambition: Rise to Power/ lets players embark on their quest from more
than 300 different starting points.

For the first time in the series, military campaigns are carried out
using an explosive 3D real-time battle system. Plus a new command lets
players go "all in" and risk their entire empire in battle. If
victorious, players will expand their empire, but a defeat could mean
the total loss of their land.

/Nobunaga's Ambition: Rise to Power/ is more than just a game of
military domination. Life in Feudal Japan is brought to life with
remarkable detail. In vibrant castle towns the daily lives of characters
will unfold while players nurture their village into a flourishing
empire. Players will also manage government affairs and develop critical
infrastructure such as ninja camps, blacksmiths, and markets. A robust
character edit function features a wide variety of character faces, the
ability to edit stats, and let's the player choose when and where the
characters will appear.

Originally released in Japan as Nobunaga's Ambition: Tenkasousei,
/Nobunaga's Ambition: Rise to Power/ marks the return of the series to
North America. /Nobunaga's Ambition: Rise to Power/ is developed by KOEI
