Yoshihisa Shimazu is the 16th Shimazu clan head, son of Takahisa, and elder brother to Yoshihiro Shimazu and Toshihisa.

Role in GamesEdit

In Samurai Warriors 2, Yoshihisa first appears at Kyushu fighting against the Toyotomi army. In the Toyotomi scenario, Yoshihisa is one of the enemy commanders to be defeated in order to claim victory. For the Shimazu forces, if Yoshihisa is beaten, it results in a loss for the Shimazu. He does not appear again until later stages. In the Pursuit of Yoshihiro stage, Yoshihisa appears to assist his younger brother. He also appears at Edo Castle when Yoshihiro decides to betray the Toyotomi, and is nearly killed by Kotaro Fuma. In Shingen and Kenshin's gaiden at Kyushu, Yoshihisa and his brother will try to throw the Kanto rulers off the trail with doubles of themselves.

Samurai Warriors 3 has Yoshihisa only appearing at Kyushu. In Kiyomasa's story, as Toyotomi fighters get the advantage, Yoshihisa tries to retreat and liaise with Yoshihiro who is also retreating.


  • "Here I am, Yoshihiro!"
  • "Unfortunately we have no choice. We have to retreat."
