Civilization VI Japan Hojo Tokimune

We have covered diplomacy and leaders in Civilization VI in depth before, and also shared with you regular updates on a variety of leaders from different regions like England, France, Egypt and now Japan.

The Japanese nation will be led by Hojo Tokimune, a 13th century de facto ruler aka Shikken who took on the invaders from the Mongol Empire. He is also known for bringing the Bushido life to the surface and for the introduction of Zen Buddhism in the Japanese empire.

He was known for being an “iron fist” ruler who beheaded five Mongol emissaries on two different occasions just because they wouldn’t take his refusal to a proposed face to face meeting with the Shikken – you can all guess what kind of a menace he will be in Civilization VI!

Firaxis has also shared a video to show off the first look at Japan where Hojo Tokimune also debuts on screen. You can check out the video below after you have read up on the special units and special buildings that he is bringing to the table.

In Civilization VI, Hojo Tokimune will be known for being the leader of the Samurai aka the Bushi class who are defined in the lore as:

Samurai, or known as Bushi class, existed for nearly a thousand years in Japan. Bushido (“the way of the warrior”) was a codified set of rules and way of life adopted by a large number of noble clans throughout Japan. The samurai class wasn’t officially abolished in Japan until 1868 and, to this day, remains one of the most identifiable Japanese cultural touchstones.

That being said, the special building that Tokimune adds to Civilization VI for Japan is the Electronics Factory. Needless to say, these are not from the time of Tokimune himself because it was in mid 20th century that electronics really made it to the world – but you’ll get there if you play as Japan.

Civilization VI releases on October 21, 2016 for PC.
