Today Koei Tecmo announced during a livestream from Japan the Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack alongside a port for the Nintendo Switch.
Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV originally launched only for PS4 and PC earlier this year, and it’s now finally coming to Switch alongside an expansion for the original platforms.
Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait for 2021 to get it, but it will add new features like the ability to trade with other empires like Rome or India.
Incidentally, we also learn that the original version of the game shipped 300,000 copies.
Below you can see a message by Koei Tecmo boss Kou Shibusawa commenting on the announcement.
Here’s how Koei Tecmo officially describes the Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack.
“The Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack is loaded with new possibilities, including trade with great Eurasian empires — including Rome and India — allowing for even broader strategies to unfold on a path to unify China. But that’s not all, as the expansion pack also introduces cities of foreign forces onto the map. Apart from conflicts in the central area, armies will now need to deal with intensified border clashes, upping the stakes in every skirmish.
In addition, new geographical advantages will be assigned to each province, so the strategies gamers will be able to choose from will vary dramatically depending on which provinces are conquered. For example: Conquering Qing Province expands the area you conquer, while conquering Yo Province allows you to open up trade with the nomadic tribe of the region, making the order of which province you conquer first now vitally important.
New officer characteristics and special tactics have also been added, along with new buildings for specific topography, a calendar that enables you to reflect on previous activities in the game, and an all-new campaign entitled “War Chronicles Mode.”
