Nobunyaga’s Ambition – Cute Cat Strategy Game

Posted in Places, Stuff by tokyobling on September 24, 2011

While walking around Akihabara the other day (I don’t get too many chances to just wander around freely these days) I happened to pass the huge Mandarake store there and saw their exhibition of game art, the characters of a strategy game loosely modeled on the epic wars over 400 years ago in Japan, but this time with cats! Adorable, cute, ferocious little kittens duking it out in what looks like a cross between Pet Station and Dragon Quest. The name itself, Nobunyaga is a pun on the historic character Nobunaga (nya being the cute pet word for cat). I guess it’s also a parody of the famous game with the very similar name, but not being a big fan of games I can’t give much more details. I just loved the illustrations! So, which one is you favorite?

    It’s between the cat batting a the ball, or the elegant lady cat with the long sweep of black hair.

    They are all very cute!
