After learning that Mitsunari was the new succesor of Hideyoshi, Kato and Fukushima refused to work to Mitsunari and joined forces with Ieyasu, who was furious too in not having been selected to be Hideyoshi's successor. Then Ieyasu had an idea: If he could kill Mitsunari, he would be free to be the new Hideyoshi's succesor.
