SEGA today announced the release of Total War: Shogun 2, the sixth installment of The Creative Assembly's Total War strategy franchise. It is the middle of the 16th Century in Feudal Japan. The country, once ruled by a unified government, is now split into many warring clans. Players take on the role of one Daimyo, the clan leader, and will use military engagements, economics and diplomacy to achieve the ultimate goal, re-unite Japan under his supreme command and become the new Shogun. Shogun 2: Total War will feature enhanced full 3D battles via land and sea, as well as a brand new AI system inspired by the scriptures that influenced Japanese warfare, the millennia old Chinese "Art of War". A new trailer is now locally mirrored.
