Sengoku Jidai: Shadow of the Shogun Teaser revealed & release date announced!

Posted: Friday, April 08, 2016 by Alberto Casulini

Japan, in the second half of the 16th century.  

For two hundred years the central power of the Ashikaga Shogunate has been progressively eroded by rebellious local daimyo. Decades of struggles among the warlords have divided the country and now they verge upon open war.

With the succession to the shogunate in doubt and a nation in economic distress, it is a time of reckoning for the noble families and their retainers, the Samurai.

This is the time of great and ambitious lords, a time of honour and betrayal. This is the time of the nation at war.

This is the Sengoku Jidai!

“ [The] Barbarossa’s most invigorating innovation [is] a nervous stroll through the minefield that was a WW2 general’s in tray. Tramping through the political swamp the developers have so skilfully evoked with his plethora of history-rich, humour-flecked decision dialogues, provides a wonderful sense of what it must have been like to sit in the turret of the German war machine in 1941” – Rock Paper Shotgun

"Operation Barbarossa in its present state represents a highlight in the progress of serious computer war gaming" - Wargamer

“You need to play this game”- Three Moves Ahead
