Battle for Rokugan, a new board game set in the Legend of the Five Rings universe, announced by Fantasy Flight Games.
A while ago, Alderac Entertainment Group, also know as AEG, sold the right of Legend of the Five Rings to Fantasy Flight Games. Fantasy Flight Games continued to keep the Legend of the Five Rings as a card game, but instead of the game being trading card game, Fantasy Flight Games changed the game into a Living Card Game, like Netrunner. Now that Fantasy Flight Games now holds the right to the Legend of the Five Rings Universe, it was only a matter of time before a board game would be announced. Today Fantasy Flight Games announced a board game set in the Legend of the Five Rings universe called, Battle for Rokugan.
In Battle of Rokugan, 2 – 5 players play the role of a Rokugan daimyō, battling for control of territory in the early days of the Emerald Empire.

From the Battle for Rokugan website:
Rokugan is a land filled with spirits, beauty, and strife. Seven great clans inhabit this diverse realm, ever loyal to the Emperor, but ever fighting for dominance among themselves. As they battle for supremacy, the daimyōs who lead their people must use all their cunning and skill to gather information, anticipate their opponent’s actions, and lay battle plans that will lead them to victory. Only one can prove themselves worthy enough to become the true voice of this land and usher Rokugan into an age of prosperity. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Battle for Rokugan, a new strategic board game based in the Legend of the Five Rings universe!
