PC-exclusive Tropico 3 bound for 360

Previously PC-only strategy game jumps to camp Microsoft

PC-exclusive strategy game, Tropico 3, is now also planned for a 360 launch, Kalypso Media has confirmed.

"Tropico 3 stays true to the heart and soul of the original Tropico," says Kalypso which, based on the previous titles, means you can expect a strategy game in which you take control of a tropical island.

According to the publisher, "one of the most prominent features of the sequel is your own, freely customizable avatar. This time, you will be able to slip into the clothes of El Presidente, wander about Tropico Island and directly influence your people."


Stefan Marcinek, global managing director for Kalypso Media Group said: "The Tropico 3 release on the Xbox 360 is a first for Kalypso and marks the beginning of an exciting entry into the console market.

"Throughout 2010 Kalypso Media have plans to release four titles in tandem on both the Xbox 360 and PC. Through this we will be able to demonstrate our strong PC Line up with new multiplatform games and this gives us some great opportunities for the year ahead."

The game's due out in September. The screens below are of the PC version.
