  Takeda Shingen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
After Imagawa Yoshimoto (a former ally of the Takeda) was killed by Oda Nobunaga, Shingen made a move against the weak Imagawa under the incompetent leadership of Yoshimoto's son, Imagawa Ujizane.
The future of all of Japan was now in the balance, as Takeda Shingen, at 49 years of age, was the one daimyo with the power, position, and skill necessary to stop Oda Nobunaga's headlong rush to ruling the land of Japan.
Takeda Shingen appears in the epic film Heaven and Earth (not to be confused with Oliver Stone's Vietnam war drama), seen from Uesugi Kenshin's point of view.

 Takeda Shingen
Takeda Shingen was the eldest son of the aggressive warlord Takeda Nobutora (1493-1573).
In June and October 1553 The Takeda and Uesugi armies clashed near the Kawanakajima plain in northern Shinano, and while the two sides withdrew after a few rounds of inconclusive skirmishing, a legend was born.
In total, the Takeda and Uesugi would face each other at the Kawanakajima five times (1554, 1555, 1557, 1561, 1564) and while not exactly the nearly annual staring matches as they are sometimes portrayed, only the 4th (1561) resulted in an all-out contest.

 Takeda Katsuyori
Takeda Katsuyori was a younger son of Takeda Shingen and prior to Shingen's death, the head of the Suwa Clan.
Furthermore, 38,000 to the Takeda's 14,000 or so were long odds for the latter, made longer still by the need to mask Nagashino castle with 2,000 of those men, leaving hardly 12,000 for the actual attack.
Thus, on 28 June 1575, Takeda Katsuyori ordered the Takeda army to attack the Oda and Tokugawa positions, which were now strengthened by the inclusion of wooden palisades (virtual proof Nobunaga and Ieyasu had counted on Katsuyori's aggressiveness getting the better of him).

 Strategy Gaming Online - Reviews: Takeda
Takeda is a battlefield game, which takes as its overarching setting and theme the life of Takeda Shingen (the “Tiger of Kai”), an upstart lord of the province of Kai and the Takeda clan.
Takeda is 2d sprites, Shogun 3d; Takeda has a narrow, focused system built around the linear presentation of Takeda Shingen’s historical battles.
Takeda and Shogun share a focus on individual generals, with the troops they command essentially removed from the army commanders’ control: in Takeda you control hundreds of soldiers, Shogun thousands.

Takeda Shingen (武田 信玄) (1521 - 1573) of the Shinano and Kai provinces, was one of the preeminent daimyos who fought for control of Japan during that country's Sengoku or "warring states" period.

After Shingen died in 1573 (due to an illness that resulted from a musket ball wound), Ieyasu seized the opportunity and defeated his son Takeda Katsuyori in Tenmokuzan.

 Morihei Ueshiba & Sokaku Takeda
The question of whether Takeda invited himself or was asked by Ueshiba to come to Ayabe seems at the moment to be unresolvable, and the official versions from Daito-ryu and aikido sources differ considerably.
What is known is that Takeda remained for five months, teaching members of the Ueshiba Juku dojo, and that at the end of this period Ueshiba was awarded the kyoju dairi certificate which conferred upon him official status as an instructor of Daito-ryu.
It is clear that Ueshiba had deep respect for Takeda's technical ability and that the latter regarded the founder of aikido as one of his most promising students.

Set in the year 1542 (exactly 12 years after the events in Shogun), Takeda seeks to put the player into the shoes of Takeda Shingen, a young man who rose to power and fame in Northern Japan.
The entirety of the campaign mode simply follows the Takeda clan from its rather humble beginnings through its conquests of other clans' lands and on to national dominance.
Takeda is very strict about its adherence to actual history, even throwing in several historical battles, featuring the actual troops and formations used.

Takeda places you in charge of the Takeda family in a world modeled after the history books, everything from the family names and locations, to the castle designs and formations used in man’s oldest sport: War.

Takeda has the potential to appeal wildly to certain types of gamers, those who are more interested in the logistics of strategy, but still has a solid basis for those of us who are not history buffs.

 Featuring Takeda Review at ActionTrip
Takeda, coming from the relatively unknown Magitech, is an interesting tactical strategy, which brings us the fascinating history of medieval Japan through a series of complex strategic battles.
The game mostly resembles Shogun: Total War in a sense that its goal is practically identical: you have to become the Emperor of the medieval Japan and conquer the territories of the enemy clans.
Takeda is not a revolutionary game, but it offers an array of interesting options in this already old and worn-out genre.

 Takeda Review from GameZone.com
Takeda, a PC release from Xicat Interactive and Magitech, is a real-time war game that incorporates many elements familiar to war gamers, including strategies, formations, morale, and – above all – a keen sense for knowing when to attack, and when to hold back.
There were instances when the Takeda army had walked into the fray, was all but surrounded and the opposing army was holding troops in reserve.
Takeda is certainly not as difficult as EA’s Shogun: Total War, but it does a nice job of finding the ground between the two, and providing a solid gaming experience.
