Fans of Sega's Total War series are in for a treat tonight, as the company has just released its newest offerings to the Play Store. Dubbed Total War Battles: Shogun, this real-time strategy title takes you back to medieval Japan on a quest for extreme supremacy.

With over 10 hours of "story-driven campaign," TWB: Shogun will certainly fill up some free time, and its touch-intuitive interface will provide the best experience possible. The game not only features local play, but also 1v1 multiplayer, and a "skirmish" mode that puts you in six standalone battles with various levels of difficulty, including normal, hard, and shogun. Throw your scores on the leaderboards to compete with other players and unlock new Skirmish activities.

Shogun will set you back a five spot; hit the widget below to grab it.

    It is saying not compatible with my friend's Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
    Can anyone else verify this, as it's odd that it is compatible with the galaxy tab 1.

    • Aaron Berlin

      Apparently not compatible with the Nexus 7, either.

      Perhaps it can't run on Jelly Bean yet? That would explain all the N7 and Tab 2 incompatibilities.

  • Fifth313ment

    Man I was rally looking forward to this as there isn't much RTS on the Android platform as a whole. Well nothing with decent non-homebrew graphics, lol.

    • jordanjay29

      It honestly looks like it's for tablet devices. It's not compatible with my HTC Vision, but is compatible with my ASUS Transformer OG.

      • Randall

        But not compatible with the Transformer Prime??? This is weird.

  • TheWhiteLotus

    This isn't compatible with the Nexus 7! What is this, communism?

    • Matti

      Ah, so that's why it didn't show up in my Play Store search. Was initially thinking it was some region thing.

      Yeah, sucks for us. Hopefully Sega get it working soon.

    Can anyone recommend a good turn based strategy game for Android? I have been looking for something in the vein of Jagged Alliance or Fallout Tactics but can't seem to find much...

    • Himmat Singh

      I don't like TBS, prefer RTS much, much more. But from what I hear, Great Big War Game is the best TBS on Android.

      • gkmcd

        Thanks, I'll check it out.

    Instant Buy; Total War is awesome.

  • Himmat Singh

    To anyone who downloaded it, how does the game play? It seems interesting though for now.

  • Jörgen Pettersson

    No Nexus 7?!

  • http://www.swehes.com/ Hans-Erik

    It is compatible with SGS3

  • Gabriel Sandstedt

    It is incompatible with my Xperia Arc S too... It can run all other games on Google Play what I know except this.
