I like the ROTKs that allow you to play as officers a lot better. I admit that it's not the classical style of ROTK, but I feel like it's the best innovation the series ever made. ROTK VIII is my favorite of the ROTK games personally.

I'm hoping that this game somehow follows what they're doing now with Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence. I would love to see this on PC in English and with modding tools for people to create scenarios, characters, conversion mods, etc. That would be a wet dream for me.

I'm looking forward to hearing more about this. I heard ROTK XII was kind of a disaster, which makes me slightly wary. On the other hand, I'm always entertained by ROTK portraits and by any of the English games in the series they've released.

Edit-WOAH, Liu Bei and Sun Quan look way different this time around.

A couple more details I could get here
- XII mostly focused on field battles, but XIII will also make depictions of naval battles and siege battles more epic.
- Certain famous characters will have different portraits shown depending when they are governing cities or fighting battles.
(Which probably is why Sun Quan here is shown with a more general-like portrait, but he should have his usual ruler-like portrait too.)

That's super cool! I love it. That explains why Liu Bei and Sun Quan have such different designs this time around.

I'm guessing that all the usual suspects will be getting this treatment. People like Zhou Yu, Lu Xun, Sun Quan, Liu Bei, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Zhuge Liang, Zhao Yun, Cao Cao, Xiahou Dun, Zhang Liao, Lü Bu, etc. are probably prime candidates.

It would be funny to see Lü Bu with a disinterested, robed politician portrait.

Glad that the series isn't dead though they'll need to do something if they want it to garner great attention as strategy is a hard sell.

I had so much fun with RotK X so I'm really glad they got back to officers POV. So, everyone should buy the western release of NA Sphere of Influence to raise chances they localize this too.

Liu bei looks like zhang Liao/ Lu meng and the annoying sun quan looks like Lu Dai form Rotk X which is he last one I played

Cao cao looks like cao cao
And who are you, the proud lord said,
that I must bow so low?

Only a cat of a different coat,
that's all the truth I know.

The return of officer POV :) No more details are shown on officer's personal stats but I hope there would be lots of officer development.

This has to be the most militarized Liu Bei portrait :) His helmet looks cool. On the other hand, that means people like Zhao Yun will take off his helmet to show his pretty boy face :P

On the official page, the pictures under Spectacle section look pretty hectic. It looks like Yuan Shao's city is taking heavy damage from Cao Cao's catapults, and then Yuan Shao is sending another unit to rush Cao Cao's city (Battle of Guan Du?) Fire's everywhere so I assume fire is pretty important :) I am hoping some naval warfare screenshot but whatever.

In the Dynamism section one pic shows the 3d map and the other shows city details. It looks like there will be skirmishes on the 3D worldmap like XI. The city screenshot has an interesting stat called culture (The one with 2184. Is this a totally new city stat?)

ROTK 13 looks very big, complete, and serious so I will expect localization on this :)

edit: Take back what I said on skirmishes on 3d worldmap like XI. At the moment I think it is more like Nobu 14
