Team Ninja is working on a new action game based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms franchise . Kou Shibusawa, CEO and historical developer of Koei Tecmo will also participate in the works.
The announcement came during Koei Tecmo’s live stream “Kou Shibusawa 40th Anniversary Program: Fall Campaign” which celebrated the 40th birthday of the president of the software house.
At the moment the game does not have a title and no other details are known, such as release date and publication platform. At the moment all we know for sure is that it will be action based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms brand and that it is in development at the studios of Team Ninja, authors of titles such as Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive and Nioh.

The latest episode of the series, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV was released last year on PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
