SEGA has announced the new elite unit pack for Total War: Shogun 2, is available for download.

Apparently, these nine “legendary warrior units are the masters of their combat disciplines, and stand head-and-shoulders above their rank-and-file brothers.”

They sure sound formidable, as you can batter enemies into submission with the “war-clubs of Tadakatsu’s Tetsubo Warriors,” or perform flank attacks with The Spears of Shizugatake, which are spear-wielding cavalrymen.

There’s also Hanzo’s Shadows, which are an elite Ninja practiced in the art of stealth, and trained to scale castle walls in a single bound. Well, just in a fast matter, really.

All nine of the elite units in the Saints and Heroes unit pack are available for use in both single and multiplayer modes. Have a look at the video and screens below.
