Wow, very interesting. Looks almost like a RTK VIII RTK VI mix.

No more playing as non-ruler... :cry:
The graphics look nice. Hopefully they will have improved the battle parts over RTK VIII (way too slow in RTK VIII... I always get bored waiting for the troops to move...), and not make it a huge memory-eater like RTK VIII!

What reminds you of AoE? The battles or the graphics? :)

The battle maps look similar to the AoE/Warcraft style games. There is a large map with multiple locations. It looks quite different than what I am used to. No more officer playing eh? Are there any other notes that stick out?

it looks like this game has a different type of fighting wars. I mean it's more realistic.

One of my personal dreams for an RTK game is a universal world map.. it's kind of hard to explain, but rather than have each city having its own battlefields, I wanted all of China to be a continuous battlefield. When you engage in war, you could march your army wherever you wanted.. if you defeat the enemy's forces when they attack you, chase them right back to their city and conquer it. Have the choice of coming straight at Chang An from the south, or heading around via Qishan and Jie Ting. No more battlefields that end at arbitrary borders that you're simply not allowed to pass, even though they're open plains.

From the few screenshots there, it looks like Koei might be implementing something along that line. I don't want it to become a Warcraft-esque real time strategy game, but if the entire map was a battlefield, I think that would add a good strategic element. ;)

It does lose realistic..but I'm sure I wouldn't want to buy it since the way it looks.

Look at the map..and look at the cities..and now the battle, its all crumbled up! Its kind of like Dynasty Tatics, but you take commance of it and...nevermind

It just ruined all of the hard work that Koei has put up.. :evil:

I think this trend started in RTK8 -- I'm not that fond of it because it just didn't feel -- RTK. :(

Only that it's going to be released in Taiwan, Japan, and Korea this winter, and that it's reverting back to a RTK6-esque battle gameplay, though since that they're not doing the officer-playing thing anymore, they might concentrate on making the battles better. The battlefield is still 2D, though. :oangry:

And no, Xiahou Mao, I don't think RTK will go RTS for a while. If it does, I'm going to quit playing RTK and go back to Warcraft.

PS: Hey James I saw that you added that to KMA! Good job! BTW, the caption for the picture with Xu You reads: "Xu You comes to join [Cao Cao]".

I was at Kongming's archives when i discovered it. I got excited, but after seeing everyones' comments here i'm a little confused. So you have to play a ruler? If you do that won't ber very cool. I don't like playing rulers. I like playing Warlords.
