Creative Assembly’s Composer & Audio Director Jeff Van Dyke, creator of previous BAFTA award winning soundtracks for the series said of the Total War: SHOGUN 2 soundtrack:
“Creating the Total War: SHOGUN 2 soundtrack was an amazing experience. The feel of the era, alongside working with talented musicians like Taikoz who performed the Japanese Taiko drums, and learning the subtleties of traditional Japanese instruments was truly inspiring.”

So whether you use your music to practice a little kendo, or sail the world’s oceans in an 18th century galleon pursuing global dominance, these are the soundtracks you’ll need.
Total War: SHOGUN 2 pushes forward the hugely successful Total War series by perfecting the features from previous games such as full 3D land and naval battles and a detailed campaign map, whilst adding an exciting new multiplayer experience. Total War: SHOGUN 2 was released in March 2011.
