If you played any of the Dynasty Warriors or Romance of the Three Kingdoms games, you’d know how rich in both story and culture that period in China was. Sega took that idea to the next level and made an MMORPG set in that period. More in the full article.
This new project sounds more suited for Koei: Sega is developing a new MMORPG based on the Three Kingdoms period in China‘s history. This is the same period where Dynasty Warriors and Romance of the Three Kingdoms (both from Koei) are set.
The game is titled Sanguko Seisen, translated as “Saga of the Three Kingdoms.” In the game, players will be immersed in ancient Chinese culture, and has emphasis on strategic and tactical thinking and maneuvering.
The game is part of Sega’s “China Series.” Unfortunately, the game might only be released in China itself. Closed testing has already started, and will continue through May. Hopefully they’ll also release the game in other regions.
