Koei has announced a concrete launch date for the beta test of its PlayStation 2 MMORPG Nobunaga's Ambition Online. Starting December 18th, beta testers can discover the game's world, which is themed after feudal Japan during the 15th and 16th century. At the beginning, players can choose between seven jobs. The beta version will require a memory card, PS2 BroadBand unit, Navigator Version 0.20 and a broadband internet connection.
Originally scheduled for October, Koei decided to push back the beta test until December two months ago. The finished version of Nobunaga's Ambition Online is expected to be released sometime in spring 2003.
