Key Features Turn-based StrategyIn addition to taking the role of commander-in-chief of your armies, you must also manage the wealth of your lands, construct defences and dojos, train your men and balance alliances with rival Daimyo while you wait for the right time to strike. Use Ninja, Shinobi and other strategic units to gain every advantage you can and so take control of Japan region by region. Real time epic battlesWhen two armies clash on the Strategy map, you will experience war, as it occurred in the 16th century. It is bloody, but it is also glorious, with a strict code of honour that must be adhered to if you are to overcome your enemies.As your men gain experience, their honour increases, and this reaps great rewards for you as Daimyo.
