Bushido: Legend of the Samurai is an Action/Melee Combat game set during during the turbulent feudal period of medieval Japan.
I assume this would be for spear units? (Based on Shogun 2 anyways) Looks awesome. Can't wait for a demo.
The Ashigaru were foot-soldiers employed by samurai to fight alongside him.
They were usually peasants in service of that particular samurai or mercenaries.
The "unit" you're referring to is the Yari Ashigaru, which stands for "spear foot-soldier".
Exactly! You put it better than I did lol.
During the Edo period, when peasants were banned from carrying arms, Ashigaru stopped being part time peasants and full time soldiers. I think.
Our Ashigaru will be more of an all-rounder than the shogun 2 version. We'll be detailing the class load-outs properly when we launch our website. Thanks for the support!
