Romance of the Three Kingdoms XI Coming to Windows-based PC

/One of Video Gaming's Longest-Running Historical Simulation Series
Returns to PC on July 29, 2008/

Burlingame, CA -- April 23, 2008 -- KOEI, recognized worldwide as the
premier brand of strategy and action games, announced today that the
Historical Simulation game, /Romance of the Three Kingdoms®XI/ (RTK XI)
is coming to Windows-based PCs for gamers throughout North America on
July 29, 2008.

"Following KOEI's successful launch of Warriors Orochi for Windows-based
PC earlier this year, the response to bringing more of KOEI's popular
franchises to the platform has been overwhelming," said Amos Ip, Senior
Vice President at KOEI Corporation. "For PC releases, the Romance of the
Three Kingdoms series has always been at the top of our fans' wish
lists. We are looking forward to bringing Romance of the Three Kingdoms
XI to Windows-based PC this summer."

From legendary video game producer Kou Shibusawa comes his next
historical simulation masterpiece. Rediscover an ancient civilization
with an explosive history in the most stunning edition of Romance of the
Three Kingdoms.

Set during the end of China's Han Dynasty and the 2nd and 3rd centuries
A.D., RTK XI presents the most visually captivating evolution in the
history of the series. Blurring the line between video games and art,
RTK XI features visuals evocative of classical Chinese ink-paintings
along with debates and duels rendered in real-time 3D animation.

As the ruler of a kingdom, each player will have complete control over
their territories. More than 40 base commands give players the power to
govern cities, manage their personnel, practice diplomacy and much more.
Complete freedom to develop markets, shipyards, outposts, forts and
military units expand on the already substantial benchmarks established
by previous editions of the series. Furthermore, players will watch the
era come to life through the uniquely individual personalities of the
more than 780 officers and supporting characters they will encounter.

Players will need to dig deep within to prove themselves adept at both
the military and political arts in order to bring China under one rule.
Domestic affairs, diplomacy and warfare are all conducted on a single
vast 3D relief map, dramatically bringing to life the eight massive
scenarios that lie before them.

For improved control over each military campaign, RTK XI's turn-based
game play allows the player to plan their movements without undue time
constraints, and then execute their battle tactics when ready. RTK XI
also introduces an entirely new system for researching military
techniques, as well as an Advanced Tactics System that allows players to
drive or lure enemies into devastating ambushes. Skilled players will be
able to link together tactics for maximum damage.

Produced by Kou Shibusawa and developed by KOEI Co., Ltd, /Romance of
the Three Kingdoms XI/ is rated "RP" (Rating Pending) by the ESRB. The
suggested retail price is US$19.99. Media can find assets at gamespress.com.
