Before or during the coming Chinese New Year?

    Hmm, hadn't thought of that. They could be cheeky like that. I think we've basically exhausted any other innane and presumptuous topics we could talk about with what little info we have.

    CA may be busy for MWNL events now but there's also the Chinese Valentine's day next after the new year so maybe we can see some love then ?

    Doubtful, judging by CA's usually pattern, February and march is going to be all about thrones, april and early may is probably all about Norsca and the accompany update to warhammer.

    Never say never as this is the first time CA/SEGA actively trying to oenetrate the Chinese market. :)

    Alongside the fact that we don´t know if CA really aim on the chinese market mainly (Shogun 2 also wasn´t for the japanese ) i don´t see any big news before E3. After E3 i think it will be advertised similar to Rome 2 (Rally Point etc.)

    We can safely assume that the summer will be focused on Three Kingdoms info, but I personally don't expect anything major until after ToB releases. I'd be surprised if we get any real news before then.

    There's this big assumption that Three Kingdoms is geared towards the Chinese market, but a game's setting doesn't really have much to do with its audience - for instance, Medieval European settings dominated Japanese RPGs for decades and remain a staple of that genre, even for games that are never exported. As others have pointed out before, CA has never really done regional marketing pushes before - the Shogun games basically got zero marketing in Japan (not even language support) and are actually far, *far* less popular there than in the US & Europe, which are where the vast majority of Total War sales come from.

    That said, Romance of the Three Kingdoms is so incredibly popular in China that just making a AAA game set during the time period is bound to make it popular there - Koei's games are proof of that. Though there might be some dissonance if CA winds up disregarding the mythical & fictional aspects of Romance in favor of a more historical approach.
