Shogun 2: Total War deploys to retail on March 15, 2011

On March 15, 2011, Shogun 2: Total War will wage war for your dollars (and maybe a few cents, too) when the next installment in The Creative Assembly's strategy series launches on March 15, 2011. The sequel will not only boast a new AI system "inspired" by Sun Tsu's Art of War, but also a host of graphical upgrades including deferred lighting and tweaked fire and explosive damage. There will also be some new mo-cap combat animations to see.

Along with the announcement, Sega sent along some new screens. Assault our gallery below and conquer them with your eyeballs.
