Koei has produced many turn-based strategy games that are rich in statistics and in the history of the orient. Romance of the Three Kingdoms is a long standing game that has enjoyed success in four previous installments. While not the longest series of strategy games, it has been a staple for this company with deep roots
Unfortunately, Koei may not be making any more PC games. We believe that Interplay may be publishing and converting some of the games for US distribution on the PC, but this is an unconfirmed rumor. Balor of the Evil Eye, a previous Koei PC title, appears to be marketed now by Interplay.
Koei hopes to market the game to Military strategy game fans; economic simulation game fans; fans of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms Series, fans of history based games.
