The 3D virtual castleThe Politics phase of this title revolves around appointing your subordinate officers as "Magistrates," each in charge of a specific function, such as "Development" or "Military." These Magistrates then provide their Daimyo with policy suggestions, and it is the player's task to select which of these policies to employ. Naturally, you can also use your own, personally selected policies as well. The "Politics" screen allows you to view each officer stationed in the 3D virtual castle, allowing for an intuitive yet detailed political command system.
