Presenting some Romance of the Three Kingdoms X screenshots and media from the Asian Windows release. Contents include portraits, the new civil duels, events, battles, and city location screenshots along with some information on new features.
Following the tradition of Romance of the Three Kingdoms games Koei has remade portraits for all the major characters, and it looks like they have again done a wonderful job. Minor characters will probably again reuse portraits. Below are some higher resolution originals along with another preview..
Romance of the Three Kingdoms X will include a new civil duel event (translated literally to ‘Tongue Game’ from Japanese), probably inspired by Zhuge Liang’s visit to Wu before Chibi and the debate which followed. When circumstances are right, you can initiate a Civil Duel, and the outcome will influence the results of the diplomatic event in question.
As was the case in previous installations, special events inspired by the novel, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, will exist in Romance of the Three Kingdoms X. Events will now impact storyline in greater ways, and will become less dependant on officer placement (making them easier to find without a guide).
Battle will function much as it did in Romance of the Three Kingdoms IX with an overworld map on which forces exist and travel. Unlike the previous installation, however, separate types of battle take place including the standard field warfare along with siege warfare and urban warfare. This draws in some features from earlier installations of Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
Below you will find some screenshots of city management interfaces for a few different locations. It looks like Koei has again outdone themselves in the detail added to the city in these interfaces, right down to defects and inconsistencies in wall construction. Also included are some screenshots from the interface provided for certain areas of your city.
