Romance of the Three Kingdoms ships
Koei's latest installment in their Romance of the Three Kingdoms series is set to ship this week. This eighth installment will take place in China during the Three Kingdoms period, and will allow players to take control of over 500 characters in a real time strategic combat. In addition to the plethora of available characters to choose from, players will also be able to create 100 characters of their own, as well as decide whether they wish to serve their kingdom or attempt to steal power as a rogue warrior.
"The release of RTKVIII marks the evolution of the longest running historical simulation game for consoles," said Amos Ip, vice president of sales and marketing at Koei. "In direct response to player requests, we are introducing the series’ first multi-character option that uses all of the game’s officers. Each of the game’s more than 700 characters is brought to life as players have complete control of their interpersonal affairs. There are also new levels of Status, new tactical skills, and a new battle process all intertwined into 54 dramatic scenarios. This is certainly the most refined game in the series."
Look for Romance of the Three Kingdoms to hit stores this week.
