Of course video game fans will know Romance of the Three Kingdoms as the basis of Dynasty Warriors, which itself was a spin-off from Koei Tecmo’s strategic adaptation of the work. As a result, you can expect to see Kunio-Kun characters don the names of iconic figures like Guan Yu, Liu Bei, and Zhang Fei.
The Kunio-Kun franchise has branched off in many different directions in recent years. While the main series is devoted to taking place in contemporary Japan (or River City, in localizations), a few spin-offs have taken things more historical or fantastical. The latest game announcement falls firmly in the former camp, as it’s set to retell the classic Chinese novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms in beat-’em-up fashion as “Kunio-kun no Sangokushi dayo: Zeiin Shuugou!”
We even have Godai as Zhang Fei in the upper right. The magazine preview also shows that development is around 65% complete.
The developer is APlus Games, which recently made Kill la Kill IF and Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time. Based on the tiny preview images, it’s already pretty evident that this won’t be another retro-style Kunio-kun game. In any case, we’ll likely get a closer look with a debut trailer from Arc System Works soon.
Kunio-kun no Sangokushi dayo is in development for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC.
