The Legend of the Five Rings universe has become quite popular, leading to new a new boardgame being released in the same world.

Here is a brief description of the game from Fantasy Flight Games:
Rokugan is a land filled with spirits, beauty, and strife. Seven great clans inhabit this diverse realm, ever loyal to the Emperor, but ever fighting for dominance among themselves. As they battle for supremacy, the daimyōs who lead their people must use all their cunning and skill to gather information, anticipate their opponent’s actions, and lay battle plans that will lead them to victory. Only one can prove themselves worthy enough to become the true voice of this land and usher Rokugan into an age of prosperity. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Battle for Rokugan, a new strategic board game based in the Legend of the Five Rings universe!
