Rise of the Samurai
Fight the war that gave birth to a legend
ID Fight Choreographer Ronin Traynor worked on the fight sequences for Rise of The Samurai, a brand new, independent campaign for Total War: SHOGUN 2.
Set 400 years before the dramatic civil war depicted in SHOGUN 2, the “Rise of The Samurai” campaign is based on the Gempei War, a conflict between six legendary clans of the Taira, Minamoto and Fujiwara families. It culminated in the first Shogunate, and the rise of the Samurai as the ruling class.
With each clan having its own unique set of traits, Ronin got to work on creating and performing fights with a wide variety of weapon systems including katana, spears, broadswords and iron studded clubs.
