Koei Tecmo just announced a new mainline numbered entry in the long running Romance of the Three Kingdoms franchise earlier today. Romance of the Three Kingdoms has had an interesting history when it comes to releases in the West. Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII was good but not as great as earlier entries and it was released on PS4 and PC in addition to Xbox One and more consoles in Japan. This was localised only for PS4 and PC in North America and Europe. Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII: Fame and Strategy Expansion Pack was a more complete release with additional content and mechanics. It was released for Xbox One in addition to PS4 and PC in English speaking regions.

Today, Koei Tecmo announced Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV for PS4 and PC only. Information for this entry comes from Ryokutya2089 via Gematsu This entry will see the game progress by going through a strategy phase which is followed by an advance phase. The strategy phase has you instructing while the advance phase has your instruction put into effect. The game will also have War Front which is a new mechanic. Koei Tecmo also said that there will be more than 1000 officers in the game which is the highest for the series. It is going to be interesting how this does considering Sega and Creative Assembly stepped into this territory with Total War Three Kingdoms earlier this year on PC.

Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV is in development for PlayStation 4 and PC. As of now, a localisation hasn’t been announced but it will likely be localised digitally at least for sure.
