There have been few good strategic games on the pacific in WWII so one can only hope this will help in that area.

Shrapnel Games would like to announce that we are now accepting pre-orders for War Plan Pacific, an exciting new take on the epic struggle in the Pacific during the Second World War. Developed by KE Studios for the Windows operating system, War Plan Pacific has a projected ship date of November 20th and will retail for $39.95. Pre-order from now until October 31st though and War Plan Pacific will only cost you $33.45!

War Plan Pacific recreates on your computer Japan's Imperial ambition to create the Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere. From the opening strikes against the forces of the United States, Great Britain, Australia, and the Netherlands in 1941 when the Japanese seemed unstoppable, to their surrender four years later under threat of atomic annihilation, War Plan Pacific is a game of grand strategy focusing on the air and naval operations that shaped history for one or two players (multiplayer supported through live Internet play).

Turn based, War Plan Pacific uses an area-based map that portrays the Pacific from Singapore to San Francisco and from the Aleutians to Brisbane and includes twenty-nine historic bases. Units are individual ships of light cruiser size or larger, amphibious assault groups, supply convoys, and air groups (both carrier and land based). Land combat is abstracted, with bases changing hands due to successful invasions supported by air and naval forces.
