Bushido (I'll admit, one of my favorite miniatures games), is getting a new edition. It's called Risen Sun and GCT Studios has started taking pre-orders for it. You can get the rulebook. You can get replacement card decks. There's even a 2-player starter and faction starter sets that you can get. If that weren't enough, there's a pre-order exclusive miniature going along with it as well.
From the announcement:
Pre-Order now for the launch on July 1st
As many of you will be aware we have been working on improving Bushido. We have worked tirelessly to refine and clean the Bushido rules and this undoubtedly couldn't have been done without you the players and your support. The work has culminated in the Risen Sun rules book. This will be free to download at release, as well as for purchase here for £18 (Around $23.4).
For existing players this is an exciting time when changes are in order across all factions. For new players the chance to start the game with a brand new specifically designed faction box or the new 2-player starter set. It’s been 6 years since the release of Bushido: New Dawn and the new edition Bushido: Risen Sun is eagerly awaited by the players.
