so basically Japan is like Fallout but with stylings and themes from its late feudal eras rather than 1950s America

samurai warlords control the place battling each other and American remnant forces who have either gone rogue or carry on with their previous orders to stabilize and occupy Japan

also instead of Super Mutants you have magically and radioactively mutated Yokai

This is basically what I saw in my head the last time I played a game of Civ V as Japan a few days ago. I ended the game by slinging nukes all over the place, so one continent was a radioactive hellhole. I would imagine these guys would be the ones sent in to do the cleanup.

Fallout: Japan sounds like a great idea.
So I'm thinking province vs. province with the American Occupation Army being the AI controlled force separating the feuding lands
NicklausofKrieg Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012
exactly. i was thinking the the provinces would be like the different factions and gangs whereas the American Occupation forces are like the Enclave

I'm connecting this picture to the alternate history project:
at the start of the twentieth century (1900's) Japan was starting to rebound after the Opium Wars. They were assimilating technology into their culture and started creating some of the best automatons in the world. When crisis and infighting occurred in the United States and China, they seized on the opportunity and invaded both countries (as well as Australia). However the empire over-expanded itself and it's enemies upgraded from guerilla tactics, which was effective, to full on industrial warfare. The Japanese Empire was forced to withdraw its forces back to the homeland which was then promptly nuked by the Americans.
And thus begins the year 1961...

I don't know enough about Feudal Japanese culture to come up with a Fallout-esqe timeline for this pic :iconimnothappyplz:

But the pic itself is awesome with a capital :iconawesomenessplz: !

thanks :D

well neither do i really. i just got the idea a couple months back when i checked out that new Shogun game. shouldn't be too hard though

:D No problem

Shouldn't be, I can imagine it starts off with Imperial General Headquarters learning about the Manhatten Project and building some rudimentary fallout shelters/bunkers in preparation for the storm. In this timeline let's say the Allies go ahead with invading Japan in an attempt to forment some kind of de-Imperialisation movement similar to de-Nazification but the war bogs down into a bloody grindhouse with hundreds of casualties for every inch of ground and a hostile population until around 47/48 when fears of Soviet expansion in Europe and Communist aggression in Asia cause the atomic bombs are dropped by a now desperate and war-weary US government in larger numbers to end things once and for all (i.e. more then Little Boy and Fatman). Japan is devestated but some of the populace survives in the bunkers, their fanaticism reinforced by propaganda material purposefully left there by the IGH in order to keep the spirit of Bushido strong. When they emerge, they have regressed into individual clans and the country enters a new period of sengoku jidai (age of the country at war). The US troops in the country meanwhile were basically abandoned by the government and some either go rouge and form their own kingdoms in a occupied wasteland while others carry on with their stablising mission as you said.

(Deep breath)

The idea could be fleshed out more but there's the basics in my opinion!
