Shogun 2 Screenshots Thought This Was Sword Week

Sega has released a batch of in-game screenshots for upcoming strategy epic Shogun2 : Total War. They're moody!

While the past two games in the series - Empire and Napoleon - had screenshots big on pomp, marching drums and pretty uniforms, Sega is going the atmospheric route with Shogun 2. I think there was a rule: if it's not a creepy night with rain or lightning, then there'd damn well better be at least one cherry blossom in the shot.
