On September 4, Arc System Works announced Kunio-kun no Sangokushi dayo Zen’in Shuugou! and released a teaser trailer. Further information will be announced soon.


Kunio-kun no Sangokushi dayo Zen’in Shuugou! is the latest title in the Kunio-kun series, which is being developed as part of the Kunio-kun’s 35th-anniversary project. At this point, all we know is the teaser trailer above and that Kunio and his friends will be in the world of Three Kingdoms. (the “Sangokushi” in the title means “Three Kingdoms”)

The teaser trailer reminds us of a large-scale battle, but the actual gameplay remains a mystery for now. Since the theme of the game is China’s Three Kingdoms, we can assume that it will depict the struggle for supremacy between Wei, Wu, and Shu.

The official title of the game is Downtown Special Kunio-kun no Sangokushi dayo Zen’in Shuugou! so it maybe positioned as a period drama like Downtown Special Kunio-kun no Jidaigeki da yo Zen’in Shuugou! (Downtown Special Kunio-kun’s Historical Period Drama!).

The game is being developed by APlus, who has previously worked on River City: Rival Showdown, River City Super Sports Challenge ~All Stars Special~, River City: Tokyo Rumble.

More information on Kunio-kun no Sangokushi dayo Zen’in Shuugou! will be revealed soon.
