Sengoku Jidai: Shadow of the Shogun - Teaser & Release date!

Post by AlbertoC » Fri Apr 08, 2016 1:56 pm

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!



Sengoku Jidai: Shadow of the Shogun is a turn-based tactical and strategic game set during this turbulent age. Developed in collaboration between Jayson Ng, an active member of the community, and Richard Bodley Scott, the mastermind behind Field of Glory and Pike & Shot, this title is a breath of fresh air in wargaming. The game’s intent is to reproduce with high fidelity the Japanese Way-of-War of that time, thanks to an efficient UI and deep gameplay. It builds on the highly successful predecessor Pike & Shot: Campaigns, adding some new features such as battlefield generals, interesting twists to the strategic campaigns system, fifteen historical battles from the Sengoku Jidai and the Imjin War, three historical campaigns, one sandbox campaign, and skirmish army lists from Japan, Korea, China, Manchuria and Mongolia covering the 16th and 17th centuries!

The game is coming out on Steam and on Slitherine on May 19th, and is currently on beta.

Masterfully done graphics! Look like contemporary Japanese paintings, a quite unique style.

Hoped to see some gameplay in the trailer. Well, that was a rather dispensable affair ... :|

Who did the graphics and trailer? In house Slitherine or out? They are amazing. Maybe best I've seen for a Matrixgames game.

I'm so excited for this game, it looks like it will be covering a lot of good army lists. Seems from this announcement Sengoku Jidai: SotS is going to cover Korea, China, and Mongolia !? This is going to be very promising !

It looks very nice. Ordered several books on the Sengoku period to read while I wait for the release!

Cheers,
Chris

Are we still looking at a May 19th release? That is right around the corner.

Coincidentally, my join date for the anniversary coupon happens to be May 19th, 2002. Perfect timing.

Does the initial release include iPAD too?

Or is that further down the road?

Bleh - Pike and Shot is really good on IOS.

I'll definitely toss you guys a $20 if you port this one over.

Thanks for the information however ....
