The year is 1869. The Shogun has fallen from grace, in favour of the new and modernised imperial Japan, led by Emperor Meiji. The last of the Tokugawa Shogunate loyalists have fallen back to Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan, and in an attempt to further distance themselves from Meiji's empire they have declared themselves as an independent republic - the Republic of Ezo.
However, their fate is upon them. Your imperial forces under the new emperor will crash upon the shores of the city of Hakodate, where the rebels' heart beats: the fortress of Goryokaku. Resistance will be fierce, but with American support and by establishing a good and defensible position on the southern shores, victory is imminent.
