has rated a pair of Koei
games that aren't Dynasty Warriors
for release on the Virtual Console
. Both are historical strategic RPGs, though with very different settings. The first, Nobunaga's Ambition
(top screens above), tasks players with conquering feudal Japan, while Uncharted Waters: New Horizons
is based more on life at sea, and lets you indulge in sailing, trading, and even piracy.
these are the NES
versions, though could be wrong -- there were versions of each on the Genesis and SNES. Considering a boxed of copy of either goes for about $20 or $25 on eBay, we could be in for a bargain when these appear.
