Romance of the Three Kingdoms XII announced

In news that very few Western people noticed with all the other madness happening in Japan, Tecmo Koei has announced Romance of the Three Kingdoms XII, a new entry in its micro-micromanagement sim set during an era of ancient Chinese civil war.

Due for a Japanese release in 2012 and designed for the PC, ROTK XII is going to feature real-time battles and will support touch-screen computer monitors. In addition, low-end PCs will be able to run it, which is hardly a surprise given the series' traditionally undemanding visual style. 

I played ROTK VII when it finally hit Europe, and could never quite wrap my head around it. I found all the management absorbing, but there's so much to it, I could never tell what I was succeeding or failing with. In any case, if it hits the West, I'll definitely be up for trying it again. That's a pretty big "if" though.
