DescriptionJapan, 12th century. After your father has been murdered, you set out on a quest to become Shogun to restore the honor of your family.
You'll have to defeat all your enemies - including your brother.
Most of the time, you'll move your troops through the big map of Japan - as soon as something happens, you'll have to fight your enemies in action sequences, such as a Gauntlet-like fortress attack or defending against a Ninja assassin. If two troops collide, a battle might ensue in which you'll have to use all your strategical wits to guide your men to victory.
In the CD-i version the informative sequences include life actor FMVs and voice acting as well as new background art.

Bob Jacobs about Lords of the Rising SunIn 1991, Cinemaware boss Bob Jacob admits the game's pace is too slow. He said it is a game you "spend twelve hours getting involved with the game", which is a problem if a player does only have one hour. (Source: Amiga Power #7, 1991/11)
