Arc System Works has revealed the first screenshots and gameplay details for Kunio-kun no Sangokushi dayo, the upcoming Records of the Three Kingdoms-themed action-strategy game with a Kunio-kun twist.
As the screenshots tease, Kunio-kun no Sangokushi dayo will follow a gameplay flow similar to Downtown Special Kunio-kun’s Historical Period Drama!. However, this time it will throw you across the country with a challenging Records of the Three Kingdoms theme. It will feature protagonist Kuni0-kun as Guan Yu during troubled times. The game will also include many fan-favorite characters taking on the role of various warlords and tacticians.
The gameplay features the familiar “belt scroll action” with places that connect from area to area as part of a vast stage. It won’t only include battlefields, but also different areas like towns or villages where you can go shopping. You can also visit every corner of all the areas to enjoy sightseeing on various terrains.
When it comes to Romance of the Three Kingdoms, you might know of the flashy “Strategems” used to turn the tides of battle. Kunio-kun no Sangokushi dayo will also have Strategems as part of its gameplay as powerful effects that affect all enemies on the screen. The Strategems have other effects outside of battle. For example, you can use them to find secret rooms and hidden paths.
