    There was with Napoleon, so I am guessing that there will be one for FOTS.
    Maybe there won't be, because NTW has been released and sold as a separate game and CA advertised it as proper game (they used to say "it isn't an expansion"). On the other hand, FOTS is advertised as a stand alone expansion. Ok, it's stand alone but, still, it's an expansion and expansions don't have limited editions usually. Anyway, I hope I'm wrong.

    Looks like the USA WILL be getting the limited edition. Amazon has a new listing with box art that has appropriate region markings for the US and labeled as 'Limited Edition'.
    It has the same box art. Maybe Amazon wrote "limited edition" on it because of the pre-order bonus. Just like Play.com did. http://www.play.com/Games/PC/4-/28398351/Total-War-Shogun-2-Fall-Of-The-Samurai/Product.html?searchstring=shogun+2&searchsource=0&searchtype=allproducts&urlrefer=search

    I hope that the Amazon page is correct, but I got some contradictory info from Sega Customer Support a couple weeks ago.

    Evan, Feb 23 11:17 (PST):

    The limited edition is only being released in the UK.

    Best Regards,
    SEGA Customer Support

    I would like to know if there will be a Limited Edition of FOTS for the United States? The reason I ask is that I like to have a hard copy or DVD of the game. I really don't like digital download. I like having the cd/dvd of all the games that I purchase.

    I have noticed that the Limited Edition has been available for pre-order at various UK sites for several weeks now, but nothing is available in North America.

    Please let me know if / when the Limited Edition will be available in the United States for pre-order. Thanks and take care.

    that's pretty f'd up to only release the limited edition in the uk. i'm not buying a steam version and sega store sucks it.

    but why does the us version of the pre-order site still say "coming soon"? none of this is making sense and it's almost M23. *panic*

    Sharing my Fall of the Samurai preorder experience

    Wanted to have CD for my collection, so I preordered at GAME (United Kingdom) almost at the time when preorders appear. A week or so, ago, received message, that my preorder is canceled due to “some reason”. Decided to support Sega directly and preordered it from SEGS store for 29.99 EU. The order processed thru gamesplanet.com, paypal was involved and payment made (no cancel option). Today I found that on gamesplanet.com, same service which handles SEGA preorders, it is possible to preorder Fall of the samurai for – 19.99 £

    So if You do not want to pay 5 EU for 1 faction DLC, check this link

    Dubious DLC Scheme. Shameless promotion with gamestop. Not enough focus on improvement, crashes and bugfix for this or previous games, always left in a mess, as soon as dlc is no longer spammed. Why buy any future total war if we all know they recieve same treatment? seem to me that games only recieve 2 years support, while most focus is on dlc and content creation and less on squishng bugs. I would buy the games, if I knew If they actually had a team who still worked on fixing the games after all contents been released i. But also again having exclusive dlc makes me puke. I refuse to buy any future total war games or dlc for shogun until everything has been released which means kawagoe castle.

    Hi all,

    I m a big fan of shogun 2. I have bought this game very early version. with Limited version (north american- US/Canada)

    I move to asia (H.K), and play this game on steam. They said due to my region. I can't access to any dlc on steam shop. Which i want to get
    "Otomo" dlc pack. I didn't buy another gold edition because it is just on top of my limited edition which wasted it.
    I have a little request. Can you send me the pack to me instead, or give me suggest how to get it. I am sorry for a little over request. But i really want to try playing the Otomo pack as it is a little difference than other clans.

    Thank you for helping me.

    It might be region locked, not sure what can be done about that.
