When Square Enix said their video game announcement would “change Japanese history” they meant it literally. The countdown is over and the announcement is… Sengoku Ixa.
Sengoku Ixa is a free to play browser based warring states simulation game. Players manage a plot of land and wage war with other areas by voting on battles with their mobile phones. While you only manage a small group, efforts are tallied with other friendly players. The side that wins the most battles gains more land.
So, FarmVille mixed with Sengoku Basara = Sengoku Ixa? That’s what this “history changing” announcement sounds like.
