Rising Sun: Bakumatsu is a mod for Mount & Blade: Warband, created by Helm8000.

Description (in author’s own words):

Rising Sun is a mod for Mount & Blade: Warband based on the Gekokujo mod set during the late Bakumatsu and Boshin War periods of Japan (1866 - 1869). Fight to restore the Imperial Court or retain the Tokugawa Shogunate.

This Mod incorporates a large amount of content from the old version of Blood & Iron (B&I II OSP). ALL western style UNIFORMS and some FIREARM parts contained in this mod were made by Parrot, Willhelm and the Blood & Iron team and CREDIT should be given to them for this content.

This is a mod I have been working on casually since mid 2015 and I have decided to release it at some point due to rising popularity of the subject matter to provide an opportunity to play in Bakumatsu period Japan at the moment. The mod's content would probably be osp just because marty4286 made his content available to use, however I can't just give it away since most of it is taken from other sources or asked permission for. I would slightly discourage other modders to take content from this mod to make their own mod and I DO NOT ENCOURAGE any other modders to discontinue their own work on any Boshin War mods due to the existence of this mod.


Rising Sun is a mod based on the wonderful and much loved Gekokujo mod by marty4286 and uses much of its original content so 100% credit should be given to him for all of the content not added by this mod. Think of this mod as a sort of unofficial free dlc or expansion to the main module, a sub-mod. The mod is set during the late Bakumatsu - Boshin War period in Japan where Pro-Imperial and Pro-Shogunate forces battled with some foreign support for control of Japan.

This mod retains all the features incorporated in the Gekokujo mod such as Diplomacy and Freelancer

Also it is recommended you play this mod with battle sizer for battles with up to 1000 troops

Smoother Ragdolls and Death Animations (Ragdolls must be enabled to play this mod)

Asymmetrical Warfare, unlike Gekokujo which has almost 100% balanced factions, clans and domains in Rising Sun will have very different weapons and equipment. Most Imperial factions will have vastly superior technology to the Shogunate factions however this will not always be the case.

Less focus on armour and heavy troops and more on weapon effectiveness. Historically during the Edo period the use of Armour decreased drastically as it was a time of relative peace overall.

More swords

Updated Map including the land on the other side of the sea if you know what I mean ;)

Content Sources:

Blood & Iron II OSP Content for all uniforms and a lot of essential firearms and firearm parts

Kengeki Gaiden Animations (Dead mod since 2011 which apparently also uses OSP Papas Animations and animations made by Dain Ironfoot)

Sounds compilation by Pylorama: All Japanese war cries and death sounds. Also credits to Treyarch and Antimatter games since I think most if not all of the sounds are from CoD: WaW and Rising Storm originally. (100% credit to him for war cries)

Bunroku mod (2 Jingasa meshes)

Napoleonic Wars DLC for some firearm bases

World Map HD v1.2
