Earlier today Koei Tecmo announced the North America release for Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII. A strategy title set in during the events of 2nd Century China. Oh and here’s the good part, It’s coming to PC via Steam.
Is it just me or is every Japanese developer finally starting to consider the PC as a valid platform for their games?
The Publisher claims that fans of strategy games should find Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII to be a challenging and rewarding blend of deep strategy and historically accurate warfare, regardless of their familiarity with the rich story of the Three Kingdoms era of Chinese history. Cities can be built and developed; alliances can be fostered or broken; armies can be mustered and deployed. It’s also said to offer a wide selection of options for conflict resolution, the most impressive of which are the armies. A wide variety of army units can be recruited and trained, including foot soldiers, cavalry, artillery, and navy, while special care has been taken to incorporate diplomacy and personal relationships, giving the player an extra incentive to build a stable and loyal network of friends and allies.
The game will feature two modes: the Campaign mode, which stays true to the most profound of strategy games by allowing players the freedom to choose a starting year and customize the board to their liking before attempting to beat the game, and the Hero mode, which acts an in-depth tutorial, closely following historical events while teaching players all of the game’s mechanics. In Hero mode, players familiar with characters from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms series can also enjoy an alternative way to relive the exciting lives and adventures of those heroes before proceeding to leave their own mark on history!
Players will also have nearly endless customization choices in Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII, with the option to take on the mantle of one of 700 historical characters (including fan-favorites such as Zhao Yun, Liu Bei, Cao Cao, and more), or create their own unique character and try to climb the proverbial leadership ladder.
Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII is set to be released on July 5th, 2016 for the PS4 and PC via Steam. More news and information on it will become available in the coming weeks, information we’ll be sure to cover right here on this website.
