Shogun 2 is the best total war game till date (imho). And lucky for me and other diehard fans of the shogun series, the recent free give away of shogun 2 really showed a spike in new users playing shogun 2 and remaining to do so, showing it is still a very succesfull and popular game even 7 years after its release. So I really hope this might actualy inspire the producers and developers to make a third installment (fingers crossed). There have been people saying there are not enough new ideas for shogun 3 after shogun 2 wich is ofcourse bs. There are plenty of new ideas that could be implemented. It can use new graphics and a new smooth engine (so not the warhammer 2 one lol) also it could use the newer total war game mechanics of aquiring armor and weapons from your defeaten foes. So you can give and modify your generals with nice and unique armor pieces, weapons, horses etc. Next to having that personal skill tree. Also it could implement the militairy missions of japan into korea and china during the shogun era. or maybe its own invasion by the mongols stuff like that are just things that would easily come to mind. Also a small skill tree for individual units that have reached a certain level of experience would be a great idea. And honestly i could think of a lot of new ideas, and im sure many of the other shogun and total war fans could aswell. The fact is though, that many of us would even buy a third installment double the price even if it just had some updates graphics and general improvements. I am a fan of all the total war games, and the same could be said for a medieval 3, and a rome 3 etc. But Shogun 3 is on top of my wish list. Its where it all started, it deserves the first third installment.
