From pointy swords to motherboards.
The fourth confirmed leader for 'Civilization VI' is Hojo Tokimune, who will be leading Japan through human history when the strategy game launches this fall.
As the leader who presided over Japan's resistance to Mongol invasion, Hojo brings with him the Divine Wind unique ability, which gives Japanese land units advantage when next to the coast and Japanese naval units advantage in shallow water. Japan's other ability gives players bonuses for adjacent districts, giving them a unique incentive to create dense cities.
Japan's unique unit is the samurai, which fights at full strength even when damaged. 'Civilization V' players will recognize this as an ability that formerly applied to all Japanese combat units. Japan also has a unique building in the electronics factory, which provides more production than the regular factory building and grants bonus culture to nearby cities, again giving players incentive to keep their Japan civilization tightly packed.
