We don't often see Romance of the Three Kingdoms titles heading outside of Japan, but franchise fans around the world will soon have the chance to check out on Switch. In an interview with NintendoEverything, producer Kazuhiro Echigoya talks about what the team is expecting as far as reception outside of Japan.
In Japan and the rest of Asia, the Nintendo Switch is a huge market, so we created the English version of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack Bundle, with the anticipation of the Switch marketing becoming just as strong in the west as in Asia. Fortunately, the Switch version has been well-received in Japan and Asia, so we hope everyone in the west will also enjoy it.
It's great to see the series get some love around the world, but is this a one-and-done situation, or are future installments going to get localized as well? Echigoya answered that question with this.
As long as there is a big market for the Switch, I think we will continue to release future entries for it, and release it concurrently with other versions.
