Romance of the Three Kingdoms goes online

KOEI sets up a new Singapore studio to develop it.

Japanese publisher KOEI has opened a new development studio in Singapore, and its first project will be an online Romance of the Three Kingdoms title due to launch in 2007 in Singapore, China, Taiwan, Korea and Japan, with America and Europe to follow.

Side note: We're not quite sure what it is about Asian-backed MMOGs due out in 2007, but this is the second one we've written about today.

KOEI hopes to net half a million subs for Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online in its first year, and said it felt that Singapore was a promising location for a studio due to its blend of Asian and European cultures.

The new studio will create 100 jobs and will become KOEI's larger studio outside Japan.
