Sengoku Jidai: Shadow of the Shogun Released

“This samurai-stuffed Pike & Shot spin-off is currently my favourite wargame of 2016,” our resident warmaster Tim Stone declared when he looked at Sengoku Jidai: Shadow of the Shogun [official site] last week. Unless young Master Stone has flitted to a new warflower like a warhummingbird since then, you can now get into the same groove as our lad. That will bring you one step closer to your goal of becoming his bestie. Of becoming HIM. By which I mean Sengoku Jidai launched today.

Sengoku Jidai is a turn-based tactics-o-strategy game set in Japan of the 16th and 17th century, grooving on the ‘Warring States’ period and the Japanese invasion of Korea. Here are some more words from Stonefish (as he asks to be called, I’m sure a future bestie like you already knows):

“The loss of an inspirational leader can be the butterfly wing-beat that causes an entire frontline to crumble. In Richard Bodley-Scott’s friendly yet flavoursome simulations of pitched pandemonium, panic is contagious and sometimes a single automatic pursuit (units sometimes become uncontrollable after dislodging an enemy) has far-reaching repercussions. I’ve said it before but it’s worth repeating – the P&S engine produces battles that pulsate and pivot in an uncommonly believable and beguiling manner. Most alternative titles feel lumpen and predictable in comparison.”

Sengoku Jidai is available on Windows for £19.99/25,99€/$26.99 direct from Slitherine or a bit more expensive on Steam. Here, this trailer gives an overview:
