Kalypso Media has nailed down a May 23, 2014 release date for the PC launch of its latest city-builder, Tropico 5, and launched a new website. Go on, El Presidente. Take a look.

Next up, it's the Mac and Xbox 360 versions which are set to arrive this summer, followed by a release on PlayStation 4 in autumn. Kalypso is also among those companies planning support for SteamOS once Steam Machines become widely available.

I've flirted with the idea of getting into Tropico, but I've resisted the call thus far -- city-building games like this are usually a Saturday-long investment in which entire meals are skipped. One of these days a Steam sale will change that and I'll almost certainly be all in for the series.
