A new series! I’m hoping to make a non-spoiler review of the game once I’ve finished a few scenario campaigns found here. My prior experience of SRPGs include Civilization and Age of Empires for these specific army type of map-based games. Note: I am going into this completely blind, so you’ll be getting the opinion of a guy at a JLPT1 level who lived in Japan for a few years. I’m not the biggest of history buffs when it comes to Japan’s, so come along for the ride of the bumpiest let’s-play! This game is currently available on Steam, Nintendo Switch, PS4/5. In my case, I’ll be playing on the Nintendo Switch.
This video will specifically cover the main menu section(Yes, it took nearly 50 minutes to cover it ALL!). I’ll be going through the options, collectibles, commander creation, etc. I’m new to providing live commentary during a playthrough, so any feedback is appreciated for future videos.

For those of you who’ve never known of this game until now, here’s a description from Wikipedia:
”Nobunaga’s Ambition (信長の野望, Nobunaga no Yabō) is a series of turn-based grand strategy role-playing simulation video games.The original game was one of the first in its genre, being released in March 1983 by the Japanese video game developer Koei. Nobunaga’s Ambition takes place during the Sengoku period of feudal Japan. The player is tasked with achieving the ultimate goal of warlord Oda Nobunaga: the conquest and unification of Japan. Selecting Oda Nobunaga is optional, however, as the player is also able to choose from a variety of other regional daimyōs of the time.
Games in the franchise have been released for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Game Boy, Sega Genesis, 3DO, Super Nintendo, PlayStation, Sega Saturn, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The title was also released for Macintosh as well as MSX, Amiga, and MS-DOS. As of March 2018, the series has shipped more than 10 million copies worldwide.”
Trying to get my channel off the ground again, so any form of subs, or likes would be truly appreciated. I uploaded game footage from a particular company a week after release, and they just weren’t having it. Completely nuked my channel into oblivion without being able to state my case to anyone on Youtube. Going forward, like what that one TLC song said, I won’t be chasing waterfalls, I’ll stick to the rivers and the lakes that I’m used to.
