The latest installment in the tactical action franchise, which launched for PlayStation 3 in Japan this past February, follows the stories of the kingdoms of Wei, Wu, Shu, and Jin through the historical military and political figures of the time as they fight to gain control over the Three Kingdoms of China.
In addition to Story Mode, the game adds “numerous replay elements” like multiple endings, extra modes “with synergies between action and game systems,” new episodes, 40 “completely new” stages, over 70 playable characters (some new, many returning), and ‘What if?’ scenarios that break away from historical fact to show “what could have happened if…” Stories will have different outcomes depending on the player’s choices.
