The shogun has fallen from power, plunging the land into chaos as feuding feudal lords scramble to take his place. But the shogun has an ace up his sleeve: you! As the head of a leading ninja clan, it’s up to you to rally your followers and help unify Japan!
As their fearless leader, you’ll need to train your fellow ninjas in the ways of modern 16th-century warfare–including the use of those newfangled matchlock guns! Assign them to infantry, cavalry, and other units to form an army fit for a shogun!

The Wikia has tonnes of useful information on building types, items and the different villagers you encounter etc.
