Back of Box:
    Enter Japan in the Age of Warring States. At the center of this role-playing, action-adventure simulation of combat, statesmanship and intrigue, you are a samurai warrior struggling for Honor. More important than life itself, Honor is crucial to achieving your ultimate goal: unifying feudal Japan under your noble rule.

    Fascinating gameplay
  • Computer-controlled opponents make decisions based on your actions -- and on the actions of other rival characters.
  • Furious melee action against multiple warriors takes place in castles, villages and ride paddies.
  • Vindicate yourself in duels against rivals who would like nothing better than to diminish your Honor.
  • Feel the drama and immediacy of real-time battles involving infantry, cavalry and muskets on battlefields that vary with every conflict.
  • Unite all 48 warring provinces in common allegiance to you, and earn the title of Shogun, Military Ruler of all Japan.

    Fun and easy to control
  • An ingenious system of menus, animation and text windows -- pioneered by MicroProse in Pirates! -- conveys the detail of text with the fun of graphics and animation.
  • Authentic Japanese music and graphics powerfully evoke the mood of Sixteenth Century Japan.
  • Four skill levels, plus other starting options.
