A Single Beautifully Realistic 3D Map
Warring States Japan depicted on a single gorgeous 3D map.
The castle town's townscape, which is the basis for expanding your clan, shows the farms and buildings you plan. The town grows and expands according to your policies.
In addition, as the situation requires you can switch seamlessly from a close up zoom to a bird's eye view. The full 3D country-wide map shows a dynamic landscape as you freely view the nation, and this also makes watching the growth of the castle town and the changes of the seasons feel much more dynamic.
Dynamic Battle with Multi-faceted Strategies
Over 300 castles appear across Japan.
Experience battles with multi-faceted strategies involving forces from multiple castles working together to simultaneously attack multiple targets.
Castles joining together for pincer attacks. Tactics that lure your enemies out of their fortifications. Dynamic battles unfold from a grand viewpoint. Also by taking into account terrain and unit position in your commands, you can enjoy truly strategic battles.
In addition, during "Battles" when units clash, you are treated to truly intense and impressive battles.
And the key to these multi-faceted strategic battles is your foreign diplomacy; where you make alliances and appeal for relief from neighboring clans.
