As also announced in it’s first reveal, the Western version will be arriving on both PS4 and PC via Steam. You can read below the official description of the game:
The latest iteration of the classic tactical series is once again set during the fall of the Han Dynasty in ancient China; where battles take place in a boundary-free scramble for land. The game’s map showcases the territory captured and the thrill of expansion using a simplified colour system—paying homage to the original Romance of the Three Kingdoms, released on PC back in 1985. Everything from war to diplomatic affairs will be geared toward managing and gathering land as players attempt to spread their strategies at will across the vast China map.
In addition, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV will adopt the ruler-based system from Romance of the Three Kingdoms IX and Romance of the Three Kingdoms XI in order to help return classic gameplay to the series. This means that all actions—from domestic, to political, to battle—will now take place on a single map. Greater individuality among characters will also be on display; with officers from the Three Kingdoms, like Liu Bei and Guan Yu, asserting themselves at various situations in order to fully immerse players into the game’s rich history. But that’s not all, as a new Evolved Artificial Intelligence system is also being implemented to challenge players across repeated playthroughs. With organizations now determined through each ruler’s ideals, different game experiences are now possible via different rulers. Even within the same faction; different policies now bring with them different strategies for expansion, making the wise use of various officers a cornerstone of advanced gameplay.
As well as this news, two trailers have been uploaded for your viewing, one being a teaser for the upcoming game and another focusing on the history of titles up to the 14th entry. You can view these below:
We will have more information on the game in the coming months, so stay tuned!

It wasn’t long ago that Atelier Ryza was announced, and now we have a Western release set in stone for you all to get excited about. This will mark the third Atelier title to release in this year alone, and sounds to be a completely new series of titles.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & The Secret Hideout is coming out 29th October for North America and 1st November for Europe. It will be launching on PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
You can read the official description of the game below:
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout begins an all-new storyline arc in GUST Studios’ fan-favourite Atelier series. The beautiful role-playing game follows the exploits of teenage tomboy Ryza, who dreams of escaping her mundane village lifestyle alongside her band of mischievous friends. One day, as they explore a forbidden island in search of adventure, they meet an elderly magician who will change their lives forever. After some convincing, the old man begins teaching Ryza the enchanting ways of alchemy, launching her on an adventure that will ultimately lead her on a quest to save her hometown from the mysterious and deadly darkness lurking beneath the surface.
In order to showcase the vibrant environments surrounding Ryza, GUST Studios instituted more realistic shadows, giving birth to a world that feels more expansive and filled with life. In addition, the fantastical depictions of the game’s colourful characters continue, pushing the series forward with a mix of both new and familiar visual sparkle.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout also introduces RPG fans to an all-new evolved synthesis program that enables alchemists to better understand the effects of synthesis visually. Additionally, the system allows everyone to not only enjoy the experience of developing recipes, but the ability to use the innovative creation system to gather items in the field using various tools — different tools uncover different items at the same location — before crafting unique items never before seen in the series.
