Kyushu Revolts (Tang Invasion in some copies) is the eight and last scenario of the Yamato Empire of the Rising Sun campaign in Age of Empires.

Scenario Instructions Edit

A Kyushu army is marching toward Hyuga once more. You must defeat the Kyushu army or risk the loss of our Hyuga vassals to a new Kyushu confederation. Win the battle to become the greatest Yamato leader and unite all of Japan.

Objective Edit

  • Destroy the Kyushu homeland.

Strategy Edit

Your Yamato base (Blue) starts in the Bronze Age, with most Stone or Tool Age buildings, and some Short Swordsmen and Bowmen defending your town. The Kyushu (Shang, Red) have a larger base and several units, so start gathering resources to defend yourself.

Age up as soon as possible, as Heavy Cavalry and Horse Archers should comprise most of your armies. Your initial infantry forces will make good cannon fodder while your real army is being trained.

The map is divided into three parts, separated by shallows: your side to the south, their side to the north, and the central part. Take control of the central part quickly by destroying their towers with Stone Throwers, and killing their units - there's lots of Gold and Stone Mines there, so get those resources before they do. Sentry Towers and Horse Archers can protect your Villagers while they work.

When you have a large, upgraded army, start attacking one side of their town, and destroy everything until you've reached the other side.

 Scenario Change Edit

The original release of Age of Empires featured a different version of the 7th and 8th scenarios of the Yamato Empire of the Rising Sun campaign. These were changed in response to concerns in South Korea with the theme of a Japanese invasion of the Korean peninsula. The scenarios were updated in all subsequent releases of Age of Empires. The scenarios themselves were unchanged, but all scenario instructions, history text, and bitmaps were updated. The original scenario is based on the Battle of Hakusukinoe.
