Total War: Shogun 2 Video Diaries

A new two-part video developer diary for Total War: Shogun 2 assembles some members of The Creative Assembly in a Benihana to discuss their upcoming strategy sequel set in Feudal Japan and show off some gameplay and artwork. In part one "Enemy Territory," the conversation, which arguably could benefit from a talking stick, discusses multiplayer support, which they admit was more of an afterthought in the past, saying it is getting more attention this time around, discussing context for battles, and player investment in their elite units. They also show off the game's concept art, which some have taken for museum pieces, delve into the influence of director Akira Kurosawa and Japanese literature, authenticity, and more. Part two discusses the elements that will hook players on the game, accessibility, the return to more of a rock/paper/scissors paradigm, the quality of their visuals, the spectacle of battles, drumming and other music, motion capture, calligraphy, and what they feel are the strongest aspects of the game. The trailers are embedded below.
