Nobunaga is going portable. Again.

The Romance of the Three Kingdoms epic will be used yet again by publisher and developer Tecmo Koei, this time on Sony's latest platform. According to a recent issue of Dengeki PlayStation (via Andriasang), the company announced that Nobunaga's Ambition: Tendou will be out for the PS Vita on September 27.

The strategy game is an updated port of the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 entry that came out in Japan back in 2009 and 2010. This version will have touch-based shortcut commands and the option to exchange AI and tactics data to other players via Wi-Fi or 3G.

Tecmo Koei's recent work using the Nobunaga's Ambition franchise was Pokemon Conquest. For more information on the company's collaboration with Nintendo, check out GameSpot's recent article.

Wow it seems the author here knows nothing about the Nobunaga's Ambition and the Romance of the Three Kingdoms series. NA took place in feudal Japan, Rot3K took place in ancient China. Get it right.

Lol! Wow, clearly there is no real care for this game title with such a huge, carless mistake. Actually, it's kind of offensive in a way as well; clearly, since this is the "dynasty warrior's" company, they don't mean much as they don't bring out the "good games". So, who cares what comes out from them, right?

The romance of the 3 kingdoms epic? Why in the blue hell would you assign a journalist to write an article about a series the are so incredibly ignorant of?

The author of this article really needs to get their world history straight.  Oda Nobunaga had nothing to do with the romance of the three kingdoms.

this article is so wrong when it says that Nobunaga's Ambition is part of the RotK epic... fisrt of all Romance of the Three Kingdoms is a Chinese Epice talking about the Warring States period, and for those that didn't get it, yeah it's a book, a big chinese book about China, not Japan, that later became the basis to the Koei's RotK series. But Romance of the Three Kingdoms was not the first Turn Based game that they've made, it was Nobunaga's Ambition that came out for the NES, the RotK series would only come out after it. And Nobunaga's Ambitions is about the Sengoku Era of Japan not China...

 @SirNormanislost you wanted to say that RotK had the same setting of Dynasty Warrior series, but they are from different genres as the former is a turn-based strategy game and the latter is a hack'n slash game

 @SirNormanislost Correct. Romance of the Three Kingdoms is a novelization of the events that happened during the Three Kingdoms Era of China. Nobunaga's Ambition is based on the Sengoku Era of Japan.

@Gelugon_baat It's been a long time since I've played one of their games after me and a friend 100% dynasty warriors 3 we lost the will to start another and that must of been 9years ago Kessen on the other hand was a type of stratergy game I'd never come across at the time and kessen2 was pretty good although moved towards a more magic/fantasy gameplay if they made it like kessen1 a civilian version would be pretty cool
