KOEI Tecmo is going pretty full on in the Mobile market in Japan. Now they have announced the DS version of Uncharted Waters IV Rota Nova will be making it’s way to both iOS and Android devices this December in Japan. Though the series hasn’t received much love in the West since the early SNES days, the series has always been an interesting off shoot RPG set in the ‘Age of Discovery’.
The mobile game boasts to be a full port of Uncharted Waters IV Rota Nova (DS) with a select few features excluded. Along with being a port, it also is to receive graphical and control updates to fit the mobile platforms.
Unlike most of KOEI Tecmo’s other mobile outings, this game will not be free-to-play, and will be a one time upfront purchase. The game will be going for 1,900 yen – which is roughly £12.99/€14.99/$16.99. On release there will be a 500 yen launch discount.
Though it is unlikely this will make it’s transition to the West as we didn’t even receive the base Uncharted Waters IV game, but it is certainly interesting to see the series still live and kicking – even if it takes the mobile market to inject some much needed love.
