Bonjour from France everyone, now even though I am out of the country and having a nice relaxing and lovely holiday, that doesn’t mean i’m going to stop giving you all Sonic/SEGA news and I think this news story might make some of you go “Mmm very nice” or “OH GOD I WANT, I WANT, I WANT!!!!!”
With the release of Total War: Shogun 2 yesterday it was annouced a few days before it was released, that SEGA had teamed up with Valve (who have made many popular titles such as: Half-Life, Portal & Left 4 Dead) to make 8 new items for the ever so popular online multiplayer action game “Team Fortress 2” (for PC only).
The Press Release says as follows:
LONDON AND SAN FRANCISCO (March 10th, 2011) – SEGA Europe Ltd. and SEGA of America, Inc. today announced that in cooperation with Valve they will release eight in-game items for Valve’ online action game, Team Fortress 2 (TF2). The new items will bring Total War Shogun 2’s unique Japanese flavor to Valve’s TF2.
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, while adding an exciting new multiplayer experience. Total War: SHOGUN 2 releases March 15, 2011.

There are two ways in order to collect all the items from The Shogun Pack (there was three ways but the first way in order to get them was if you had Pre-Ordered Shogun 2 on Steam), you either:
- Buy all eight items in Team Fortress 2’s Mann Co. Store. Or
- You collect all eight items through in-game item drops or crafting.
The items that you can collect in the pack are:
- Gunbai (The Fan O’War)
- Kunai (Conniver’s Kunai)
- Katana (The Half-Zatoicho)
- Sashimono (The Concheror) &
- Four new hats
So don’t delay get looking for those new items and pretty soon will all be shouting “THERES A SAMURAI ROUND HERE!!!!!”
