Shogun 2 Q&A Available

Sega have published a Shogun 2 Q&A with Total War's Lead Designer James Russell.
Key points:

  • Shogun 2 is set during the same time period as the original Shogun: Japan’s Sengoku Jidai: the warring states period in the 16th century, before the Tokugawa Shogunate asserted its complete control and ended the anarchy.
  • There will be sea battles, less sophisticated than in Empire Total War because of the nature of the period and setting, but will involved integration with land warfare by the sound of it, with land masses visible during sea battles, and presumably usable?
  • They will fold in the importance of honour, treachery, clan & family, and many other aspects of being a warlord in feudal Japan. Of course, we need a completely new set of agents and agent abilities too.
  • Hero characters will have more influence on battle and castles will be completely different.
