Sangokushi games aren't great enough to be worth their price, not to mention the price of importing. Seriously.

Wait for the RTK11 English release or go take a vacation opportunity to get it.

Is there anywhere to find the PC games in English? If not, which games in the series have reliable English patches? I was thinking of going the PC route over the PS2 route, but I haven't found hardly anything online that's available.

I did find 7 or 9 I think and 11 at a local game store, but they're in Korean. While I could manage to still play it in Korean, Chinese names are totally different in Hangul, so I'd have almost no idea who anyone is. Is it entirely unlikely that an English patch would work with the Korean version?

Most likely, a patch wouldn't work.

Only RTK11 is coming out on English for the PC. KOEI has only recently begun selling English PC games.

Thanks for the response.

If I go the Chinese/Japanese game route, which ones have fairly good patches around? Anyone know?

Cao Shang made a really good Japanese->English patch for ROTK11. It also works on the Chinese version, but there are a few errors there. I believe both the Japanese->English and Chinese->English patches for ROTK10 (the Chinese one was made by me and I still actually make progress on it, just haven't updated it yet) both make the game playable (moreso if you've played the PS2 version).

To be honest, since I learned Chinese, the motivation to do patches left. There are too many limitations - people with long names in English may only have eight bytes allocated to their entire name in the PC game, thus Xiahou Shang becomes XhouShng if you want to try to squeeze it in, and it looks ugly.

Hi,

I've seen that the game is announced for a North America release on July 29th, but I can't find any information about the distribution.
Does anybody know if it's gonna be released on digital downloads or if it's gonna be in stores on the 29th?

Thanks :wink:

Okay, here are the details of what I know.

Distribution: Direct2Drive and Trygaming portals are where you can get it. Fortunately, you can also pick up a boxed copy of ROTK XI when it is released, which I believe to be September 5th. North America gets Digital Distribution about September 9th.

PUK: No word at this time, though someone through a dubious grapeline said that a representive of Koei mentioned that it isn't happening. The demo doesn't help much in that regard, though I have heard Oriental versions of the demo also lacked PUK additions. So flip a coin, pray to whatever empowers you. Turtle soup wouldn't hurt, either.

I read about that elsewhere, the name limitations. Does that pose a problem in XI? I've got no motivations to learn Chinese for the time being and would just get the English PC version instead if that's the case...if I can find it.

We do not support software piracy on this forum. Which is why we have this thread.

Please don't ask about illegal downloads anymore.
