KOEI Tecmo Japan has been very busy of late celebrating their 35th Anniversary for Romance of the Three Kingdoms, along with this celebration a new mobile title has launched! Called Sangokushi Heroes, you are put up to the challenge of taking on a powerful artificial intelligence known as Garyu, created by famed AI company HEROZ. The game also offers multiplayer where you can take on other players around the nation in this turn-based board game take on the Three Kingdoms.
You can check out the launch trailer below:
We have a new game page up for the title which offers a bevy of information and media on the title, so be sure to head on over there!

It has been such a long time since KOEI Tecmo and Kou Shibusawa launched the famed ‘Romance of the Three Kingdoms’ grand-strategy series. This year marks the 35th anniversary and KOEI Tecmo has been doing a lot of celebrations in it’s homeland of Japan.
Along with all these announcements, they briefly teased that yet a new title in the series is in development, and will be launching exclusively on iOS and Android. This marks in for a long while that Romance of the Three Kingdoms has been internally developed for mobile platforms (with recent times being outsourced to third parties).
More information will be revealed on the title in January 2020.
If mobile isn’t your cup of tea, don’t worry a full console / PC instalment with Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV is arriving February 28th 2020 in both Americas and Europe.

We have known for a while now that there is a Monster Rancher (or Monster Farm in Japan) reboot happening and will be launching on iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch. An updated release of the original title from the Playstation One days, it is to get new life on your mobile devices and Switch console!
Now KOEI Tecmo Japan have announced that Monster Rancher will be launching on 28th November for iOS and Android, while the Nintendo Switch version will be launching 19th December. This of course is only in Japan, though the Switch release as always will be region free.
No news if a Western release will be coming, but we do hope so, especially for Europe who missed out on the entire Monster Rancher series back in the day.
