Garden Politics:

Officers are given a domain to rule over, according to their station.
Drive back enemies that invade, and listen to the people of your domain as you develop it.
In the beginning, your domain will be small while your station is low. However, by carrying out your Lord's orders and gaining honor, eventually you will climb the ranks to become lord of the castle, putting you in charge of civil development on an even larger scale.

With this release, you can now play as a retainer. As a single officer, you can command your soldiers and rush through the battlefield, adding a new perspective to battle.
Control units at your beck and call. Use various formations, and make use of actions such as charging by soldier type. In the midst of a quick-paced battlefield, you can experience the strategy of deep, thrilling battlefields.
We have added a new "Combat Quest" system, allowing various missions to occur during battle. Battles will change in real-time depending on the results of these missions, allowing for even more dramatic battles.

In addition, we bring even more spark to the battles with a plentiful variation of castles to host these sieges.

This is great news.
I wasn't so sure that Sengoku Risshiden would get a western release due to how it could be difficult to market a second Sphere of Influence game, but I'm happy to see that Koei doesn't give up (I guess an English version of RTK13PK is assured too at this point).
My only gripe with this is that SR is more like a second expansion to the original Souzou than a completely different new release and I wish it would be have been released as such (or maybe with a discount for those who already own SoI).
Then again, I've spent more time on SoI than any other game in recent years, so I might as well pay the full price again (I've already tried to resist the urge to buy RTK13 on launch and failed anyway).

Nice. I find NO:SOI slightly better then ROTK 13 for story telling and for character building. So I do hope that when officer play comes it helps a fair amount of characters. I felt like I always wanted to play a ninja in NO:SOI and I can now or one of the 4 guardians of a clan. That or hopefully play the Satake, Amago, Nabeshima or the Ukita clans.

Hopefully this game will have events in and will will educate me a bit more and make me care for some officers. I am curious about Osaka but I think this will end up helping me understand it a bit more.

Can't wait.

EDIT: Added the promotional banner for the game!

After religiously following Motrini's updates on the game's mechanics, I can finally play Sengoku Risshiden in October. Well, we can call it Ascension now!

I invite people to buy this game. We should keep supporting KOEI, not only Sphere of Influence is a fantastic game, but they are releasing games in West! True, we have reason to complain about some game releases (basically all of the PUKs and Taikō Risshiden), but KOEI is making an effort to reach all fans.

I am ecstatic that we're finally getting a Risshiden game. I never thought I'd see the day, especially given this game was heavily using Sphere of Influence as a base and I doubted Koei would be brave enough to try it... but they are!

Too bad we have to wait until October... but it'll be worth the wait.

Indeed, a Risshiden game at last! I'm as excited as you are Uesugi Kenshin!

I thought ROTK XIII was a disaster personally. I'm excited to see this game localized as I felt like NA: SOI was one of the best PC games I've ever played. It tops my Steam games in terms of playtime.

I'm hoping that this game handles everything a lot better than ROTK XIII did. Given that it uses NA: SOI as a base, I have a decent amount of optimism.

EDIT: Took a page from BlackKite's book and updated the game's info. Keep me aware if you feel like there is something that needs to be added.

I wouldn't call ROTK XIII a disaster personally, but there is clearly a major lack of content and variety. I'm currently playing Sphere of Influence, after spending 1100 hours on it, and still find "something new". Maybe I don't get the game yet, but that doesn't happen on ROTK XIII. There are just too few scenarios and there's not even a proper 3K one. The game basically ends after Chi Bi.

I think the core game mechanics of ROTK XIII are terrible. I've described what I disliked about the game in my review on this site. I won't get into that here. By contrast, I thought NA: SOI was a very solid game mechanically. It did have some problems such as controlling battles manually being highly abuseable. I feel that these problems are due to making everything real-time not working well for these games. They could be resolved by simply making battles take place outside of the timeframe of all other actions like in previous ROTKs.

I heard Risshiden did not add much to SOI though I would like the ability to control my own clan within a larger faction, particularly in the case of larger clans like the Sanada or Tachibana.

I've waited so many years for a Risshiden game to be localized. Finally!

Now they just need to localize all the other games and put them on Steam. Or at least the recent ones involving Hideyoshi. Pls?

They fixed it, both tribes and regular allies are under AI control.

That's actually a shame because I liked exploiting them, especially the pierce tribes.

If they are exploring the Officer Play feature is perfectly normal that the units "do as they please".

Yep, you get a summary of your character's life and then you can select an heir (if you have one I guess).
That's the only way some events like Otate no Ran are playable.

I'm actually wrong too since events like Otate no Ran can also be playable by starting as a subordinate (I think they added this feature with the first big patch? Not sure...).

It's quite possible, maybe what I read was also before an update. Oh well, if you feel like there's something that needs to be added, feel free to inform me Motrini. I will update the first post.

If you understand Japanese the 4gamer article is quite good. I used a translator and I still got the most part. Anyway, I'm sure someone is going to fill you in about the game's mechanics. Too bad no one decided to start this topic sooner because Motrini was doing a pretty good job on the Sphere of Influence thread.
