Sega's put its official seal on Shogun 2: Total War, after it leaked all over the internet this week - and released the first artwork and logos for the game.
The sixth instalment of Creative Assembly's acclaimed strategy series will hit PC in 2011, introducing "a wealth of new ideas" to make the sequel just as revolutionary as Shogun 1, Sega boldly promises.
Set in 16th Century Feudal Japan, the country is now split into many warring clans. Players take on the role of one Daimyo, the clan leader, and will use military engagements, economics and diplomacy to achieve the ultimate goal, re-unite Japan under his supreme command and become the new Shogun.
Sega says Shogun 2 will feature enhanced land and sea battles and a brand new AI system inspired by the Chinese "Art of War".
"Developing Shogun 2: Total War gives us the opportunity to use recent technology to portray one of history's most exciting civil wars." commented Mike Simpson, father of the Total War franchise.
"Ever since we developed Shogun: Total War 10 years ago, the team at The Creative Assembly has always dreamt of using our accumulated experience to revisit Total War in Feudal Japan."
