Square Enix’s Three Kingdoms Game Has A Dragon Force-Like Battle System

By Spencer . June 20, 2013 . 2:35am

Sangokushi Rumble from Square Enix uses the Romance of the Three Kingdoms epic as source material, but takes some liberties with the warlords. Some of the generals that are male in the story are female Sangokushi Rumble. Bizarre history rewriting aside, Sangokushi Rumble looks like it has a neat battle system.

Anyone remember Dragon Force? Sangokushi Rumble has players send out soldiers that run towards the enemy army and clash with any units they come into contact with. Combat is all real time and you can tap on warlords to use special moves. The game has boss battles where you will run into other notable warlords and event scenes that explain the story.

Sangokushi Rumble is available now as a free download and if you clear the tutorial mode during the launch period you’ll get a rare Cao Cao card for free.

    • J_Joestar

      Makes me wish that DF2 got localized, the fan translation hasn’t gone much beyond just basic menus T_T
      I managed to trial&error the menus and beat the game with every nation back when i was a kid, but i wish i could read the story too…

    Of course i remember dragon force! It was one of the most awesome games on the saturn back in the day <3 <3 <3
    Would be cool if SEGA would give us a dragon force 3 for vita or something.

      all o’ da money.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Well. S-E, consider i am hype for this game now.T_T At first i thought this is going to be another card game with Three Kingdoms theme but it seems, i am wrong here.

    Using Dragon Force battle system is surely going to make me interested with this game now.

    And seeing that there are some char that have two gender, can i imagine some female being transformed into male gender too?^_^

  • Sergio BriceƱo

    That Guan Yu.

  • Yan Zhao

    Thank god their Da Qiao isnt some meek loli, and actually looks like one of China’s Great Beauties.

  • Warboss Aohd

    Dragon Force?

    • 60hz


      • Warboss Aohd

        o’ course it iz, Mork forbid it’s actually on console, handheld, or PC.

        Might wanna get me an’ Ouya to play iOS gamez.

        • PegasusOrgans

          Avoid Ouya like the plague. Check out the Kickstarter comments if you don’t believe me. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ouya/ouya-a-new-kind-of-video-game-console/comments

          How long are people gonna be on about this? Square said they are moving to mostly focus on mobile gaming. It should be a shocker now if a SE game was on 3ds or vita not mobile.

          • Warboss Aohd

            dat will possibly cause dere downfall.

          • yomachaser

            Oh for sure it could but it’s the bet they’re running with for the foreseeable future.

  • mowmow

    i would the crap outta this game. Dragon force and romance combined is like a dream come true to me
    doh its on phones =/

  • disgaea36

    Okay so Was I the only one who thought that was a beastly link in the cover photo lol

  • H_Floyd

    Is this an internally developed game, or is SE just the publisher?

  • ShadowDivz

    The female version of Guan Yu.
    Isn’t that the artist of Blade And Soul?

  • VenerableSage

    > iOS game, like most of Square’s efforts as of late

    I’d rather have a port or HD Remaster of Dragon Force on console/Steam, thank you very much.

  • DyLaN

    >_> <_< I prefer the female Guan Yu…. Will get to try out if localize since its free.
