Tecmo Koei’s legendary historical simulation Romance of the Three Kingdoms finally makes it to the iPad today, for a pricey-but-probably-worth-it Â£9.49/€12.99/$15.99. For fans of the series with an iPad, this is a must-buy.
RTK is set in 2nd-3rd Century Imperial China, where The Three Kingdoms of Wu, Wei and Shu are fighting for supremacy. Players have to choose to play as one of the famous warlords and unite all of China. As a sovereign, your duties cover everything from domestic and foreign matters to military defence and expansion. These historical tales are very popular in Japan, where the series has a huge following.
RTK Touch Plus for iPad is an evolution of RTK Touch which was released in 2009 for iPhone/iPod touch. It has high-res graphics, a completely redesigned and revamped interface, and includes lots of new features, such as three new scenarios, in which players get to take a different course through history, new edit functions, plus hints and tips to help newcomers to the series get started
If you are one of those newcomers, be prepared to be dazzled by the incredible accuracy of the historical detail, and the sheer scale and size of the game, with 255 characters to choose from, each with unique abilities, as you recruit officers from across the land and take to the battlefield to vanquish your enemies. It can be a little daunting at first, but there’s plenty of help at hand so jump in!
Now what would be really cool is if Tecmo Koei would also bring out an iPad version of Dynasty Warriors, the more combat-orientated RTK series!
