We've announced the name of our new handheld title that's been under top secret development here at CA for the past year or so. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to Total War Battles: Shogun.
For those of you wondering, it's not a direct port of Total War to handhelds. We wanted to make a Total War experience that best suited the devices we've aimed for, so have created something new but that still conveys the Total War feel.
You'll build a base, gather resources and tactically advance on the enemy while trying to defend your own lines. As you go, you'll unlock further maps to play in a ten-hour campaign.
There's a multiplayer feature too, where two players can go head-to-head locally for supremacy on a top-down map. It's hilariously fun trying to anticipate your opponent's moves, and has resulted in at least one flipped iPad in the office. No names.
There are a few screenshots on Eurogamer, too, so be sure to check it out. We'd love to hear what you think.
The Creative Assembly.
