Zan is a Sengoku era strategy sim series from Wolf Team in which the player controls one of many daimyo attempting to hold onto their own territory while conquering those belonging to others. Occasionally, the focus of the game switches from fighting fellow daimyos to repelling demonic armies from the underworld.
