Sega’s put out an excellent campaign video for Shogun 2, showing the turn-based map elements, real-time combat and political cut-scenes.

Ninjas and Geisha assassins will be making a return to the series, and Shogun 2 is now confirmed to be bringing XP points for characters to Total War for the first time.

There’s lots of political cut-scene type stuff here, and a bit with a ninja dripping poison down a string, like that bit in You Only Live Twice where the woman gets killed instead of James Bond.

There’s no denying the quality here. This really does look brilliant, assuming strategy’s your bag.

Check it out. It hits PC on March 15.
