Sorta but not really. It's not like games like Warcraft where everything is constantly moving. There is a planning and an action phase. You can take your time and slowly figure things out during the planning phase, which is not in real time and can last forever if you would like it to. Then at the end of your planning turn the action phase begins, this is the realtime aspect in that all happens at the same time but it's not like other RTS' games where you control the action while it happens. All is planned beforehand.

So it is a lot like the war system from Romance VI, it would seem... alright, my hopes have managed to reconstitute themselves to some degree... Carry on with Romance X conversation now folks, sorry for that interruption. 8-)

The new game of Nobunaga's Ambition include real-time battle, so it's not suprising at all to see rotk 10's battle is real-time too.

do we assume this is the pc version? how much space is there, typically, between the pc release and the ps2 port (not to mention the translation and transcontinental release)?

It usually takes a year, sometime a little more, between the Asian PS2 release and the North American one.

This looks like the Asian PC version, so I wouldn't expect to see a North American release of Romance X until December 2005 or thereabouts.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see it later in 2004 or in early 2005, actually.

You think? I was under the impression that the quick translation of Romance IX was kind of a surprise event, and that a similarly quick release for the next game would be unlikely. You never know, though. I just hope Koei doesn't flood their own market with too-close releases.

Not to say I wouldn't get Romance X if it came out on the heels of Romance IX, of course... :)

Usually, there is a ~1 year gap between the Asian PC release to the English PS2 release (with the Asian PS2 stuck in there midway before the English).

No doubt, I’d gladly put a year or a little less between the RTK titles. I get around three months of gameplay out of them at most (which is unfortunately a down from what I used to enjoy) but that’s not bad at all. And if they make the PS2 version anywhere near as well as it is looking like the RTK IX PS2 version could be, I’m in for it. I really like how they’ve handled the resolution differences in IX.

Ya know, I was half expecting ROTK X to be 3D. Being the tenth game of the series and all....
