The latest title of the award-winning simulation video game series Nobunaga's Ambition will feature a song by Japan's R&B diva Misia written in collaboration with respected American jazz composer and producer Marcus Miller.

The new song "Unmei Loop (feat. Marcus Miller)" will appear both during the game and as the ending theme song of Nobunaga's Ambition: Taishi -- Windows / PlayStation 4/ Nintendo Switch -- scheduled to be released this winter.

"Unmei" means "destiny" in Japanese, and the lyrics of the song express the world depicted in the history strategy game that takes place during the warring states period of feudal Japan.

Misia describes it as a "very cool song" with a strong message: "Destiny is yours to make, so believe in your soul."

Miller played bass on the smooth, jazz-funk track. "It was so cool to play with Misia on her album," he says. "After I jammed with her at last year's Blue Note festival, we promised that we would collaborate on some new music, and now it's a reality. Hopefully there's more to come!"

"Unmei Loop (feat. Marcus Miller)" is available on Apple Music, iTunes and other platforms, and is included on Misia's new mini-album, Misia Soul Jazz Session, which was released July 26.
