Heading West – Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere Of Influence

The problem with Nobunaga’s Ambition is that the title is a constant reminder of the fantastic Onimusha series, which Capcom has long since abandoned. So while my heart is heavy once again, in mourning of a once great franchise, I’m also pleased to see that Koei Tecmo has announced that it will be sending Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence [official site] to the western world…

In a meeting of franchises, it's a mix of Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors, with some supernatural battlin' to be done. It's not the best of Warriors games, certainly, but it still captures the charming field-of-battle dynamic that makes these games…
