Might seem like a weird question but...

Is there anyway to get the in-game units to speak Japanese instead of English? I assumed there was an option to have Japanese spoken since all of the units in Empire and Napoleon spoke their national languages, but I couldn't find one.

Well I'm pretty sure in regular shogun 2 they only spoke Japanese, but I'm thinking because of the western influences they now speak English.

But that's not historically accurate is it? O_o Cause Japanese people still speak Japanese mostly.

Technically it would be correct for them to speak english/ french/ or german,. Many of the soldiers were taught by foreigners and their organization, commands and drills were based on Western concepts, culture and language.

In other words if you were a foreigner trying to teach a local the command "Fire", rather then trying to use a local / native word for "Fire"(which might not even exist), you would simply teach them the english word "Fire" instead.

Unfortunately there is not a way to do that. The unit's voices are spoken in Japanese in Shogun 2 and Rise of The Samurai but Creative Assembly decided to make the units speak English instead in Fall of The Samurai since it was a popular demand by their community.

To me it was more immersive with Japanese voiced units but...
