That’s as in “A Row With Saints”, of course. You won’t see Johnny Gat downing a beer with Musashi in the new Total War: Shogun 2: Saints and Heroes Elite Unit Pack, as much as that would shake things up. Nor are there any latex nuns, unless they’re just hiding.
With this DLC pack, you will however get the likes of Tadakatsu’s Tetsubo Warriors (“As strong as Oni”), Hanzo’s Shadows (“Can climb walls very fast”), Gozen’s Hime Heroines (“Excellent morale”) and The Spears of Shizugatake (“Vulnerable to Yari and Naginata”) fighting for you on the battlefield. There may even be a trailer to show off what this looks like…
Things We Learned: Feudal Japan really liked going widescreen.
Saints and Heroes is out now on Steam for £1.99. I once again sigh deeply and retreat to continue envying people good enough at strategy to actually play these games.
