March into battle this month of the Three Kingdoms
Even if you’re not a history buff, odds are you’ve still heard of Liu Bei, Cao Cao, Sun Quan and other heroes from Romance of the Three Kingdoms. You’ve probably also seen one of the many films and TV dramas centred on the Three Kingdoms period.
The era has provided fertile soil for games, too. In 1985, Japanese developer KOEI released its first Three Kingdoms game. There are even new versions available on the App Store right now, like New Romance of the Three Kingdoms. For over 30 years, these celebrated games have captivated players with their fresh takes on siege warfare, debates and duel battles.
Action game series Dynasty Warriors also holds a special place in gamers’ hearts. Its well-storied strategy games impress with their attention to detail and a large variety of ancient weapons and armaments.
As board games increased in popularity, the card-based Legends of the Three Kingdoms was seen on tables around Asia for years. Players must master the special abilities of famous Three Kingdoms characters together with weapons, tools and horses. All it takes for most players is a single game to get hooked by the action.
