Lords of the Rising Sun is a 1989 video game by Cinemaware, game design and art by Doug Barnett, released for the Amiga among other systems. Like the earlier Defender of the Crown, it was a mix of map-based strategy and arcade-style mini games as the player - one of famous Japanese generals Yoshitsune or Yoritomo - fights to pacify Japan by force. In the short documentary "The Total War Story", Mike Simpson, studio director for the company Creative Assembly said that the company's Total War series of games had been influenced by Lords of the Rising Sun. Computer Gaming World gave the game a positive review, admiring the cinematic qualities of the game as well as the mix of action and strategy elements.
