Seemingly finally realising they've had the franchise name and game title back-to-front all this time, SEGA and Creative Assembly have revealed that their upcoming feudal Japan strategy game will now be called Total War: Shogun 2. Speaking to Eurogamer
a SEGA spokeperson explained the obvious decision.
"Both Creative Assembly and SEGA have intended to invert the Total War naming convention for some time," a SEGA spokesperson told Euroagmer.
"The Total War series of games spans over 10 years of titles. We wanted to identify all of these as one series using a more obvious naming convention for players.
"Revealing the new title with the Shogun 2 box art was the opportune time to do so,"
