Lady with an accent tells the story of Shogun 2 Total War

Nov 06 // Josh Tolentino    @unangbangkay

You thought Sega and Creative Assembly's sequel to Shogun: Total War was about samurai? Hah! You thought wrong. It's actually about an amnesiac boy with great hair that happens upon a weapon with great power, and embarks on an epic journey to save the world from a mysterious evil.

Naw, I'm kidding, it's about samurai. Just not the Sengoku BASARA or Samurai Warriors samurai, just plain-old historical samurai, roughly from the 15th century onwards. Why not start at the 10th century, around the time when the word "samurai" was actually coined, you ask? Well, back then most samurai were mounted archers rather than armored dudes with cool swords. 500 years makes for a more dramatic trailer, it seems.
