Sengoku Jidai: Shadow of the Shogun’s release date is approaching. The game will be released on the 19th of May and you’ll finally be able to fully experience warfare in East Asia in the 16th and 17th centuries.
But we have a special treat for you: a Collector’s Edition will be available, adding extra content to an already extremely rich game!
Here is a breakdown of what is contained in the Collector’s Edition of Sengoku Jidai:
Byeongja Horan Campaign: 1637, the Manchu have invaded Korea, and the Joseon stand alone against the Qing. Will you play as the Joseon and try to expel the invaders? Or will you side with the Qing and complete the conquest of the peninsula?
Genko Campaign: 1282, with the conquest of China almost complete, Kublai Khan turns his glance towards the land of the Rising Sun and demands it bend the knee and pay tribute to his empire. The Japanese refuse, and it leads to war. Historically, a great storm stopped the invading fleet, the “Divine Wind”. But what if there was no storm? Fight the war for Japanese independence in this what-if campaign!
Genko Skirmishes: 4 new army lists are added to the Skirmish mode of Sengoku Jidai, introducing a Yuan army list (Mongol Invasion) and 3 Japanese ones (Hojo and two generic clans called Aoi and Akai). This skirmish module allows you to experience the very different tactics of late 13th century Japanese warfare both against the Mongol invaders and against other Japanese clans.
