They said they were going to do it. Now, they’ve done it! Total War is even more total, with the debut of Total War Battles: Shogun from TriplePoint client SEGA. I’m pretty sure the bushido code compels you to download and play it right away.
From the press release:
Total War Battles: Shogun puts players in the role of a hot-headed young samurai who vows to avenge the death of his father. He embarks upon on a journey of conquest across medieval Japan, through over 15 hours of thrilling and unique tactical challenges.
Players will construct bases, train armies of Samurai, Warrior Monks and stealthy Ninja, marching them into battle against their foes. Alongside 27 core missions, there are also 18 challenging side-quests that generate extra experience points. Players can use these to upgrade their buildings and units, and gain the edge in future battles.
All we need to do now is get this game on graphing calculators and Blackberries and I think it’ll be as Total a War as possible.
