Shogun 2: Total War Story Trailer
Shogun: Total War was one of those games that, I’m ashamed to say, I forgot about. I played it, loved it and put it in the vault, and then I got buried under a bunch of other, far inferior games, even though the game launched the Total War franchise. Personally, though, I was never as interested in the other Total War games as I was in Shogun, because I was already familiar with the other game topics. Far East history, on the other hand, is not taught in schools in Alabama, and so Shogun was intriguing to me in a way that a game about Napoleon never could be.
Anyway, Shogun 2 picks up in 16th century Japan, and the player takes on the role of clan leader Daimyo as he attempts to unite all of Japan under his banner. Also, we got a really close look at it at PAX and it’s really great. Here’s the cool story trailer.
Shogun 2 hits next year on the PC.
