It’s probably going to be awhile before we actually see complete ports of the Total War strategy series from the PC to our mobile devices but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun with historical battles on our smartphones and tablets. Today SEGA announced Total War Battles: Shogun for Android and iOS devices. The game is a re-imagining of the Total War series and has been specifically designed for multi-touch interfaces.
While you won’t get epic scale battles like the Total War games, you will get exciting real-time strategy gameplay that you can bring with you everywhere you go. Total War Battles: Shogun puts you in the shoes of a samurai with a thirst for revenge in a 10-hour plus single player campaign and a head-to-head multiplayer mode when you’re done with that.
Judging by screenshots of the game so far, it looks pretty awesome, with highly detailed units against a stylized backdrop. No word on pricing yet, but the game is expected to be released on April 19th.
