Nobunaga’s Ambition Taishi with Power Up Kit is an enhanced edition of the base Taishi title along with new additions, fixes and reworks to make it into a far more improved and fun experience. However the title was originally meant to come out this November in Japan, but it has been delayed now into 2019.
With a changed release date of February 14th 2019, we hope that this delay will only further improve the enhanced edition more. KOEI Tecmo Japan have made an official statement regarding this delay:
“Although we are adding various new elements in this game, we would like to deliver it to everyone after further brush ups, including to the game balance, so please give us the time. We will finish the game at a quality that meets the fans’ expectations.”
We have no information if this will release to the West, as it is scheduled for Japan only – though it is possible this “Power Up Kit” could arrive as DLC as did Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII’s did. The game is to release for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC in Japan.
Below you can check out a gameplay trailer for the game:
