Empire of Sin has yet to release in the West, but there are already rumblings that the game will be available in Japan and the rest of Asia too, but what exactly is it?
Empire of Sin, a turn-based strategy game developed by Romero Games and published by Paradox Interactive, puts the player in the shoes of a fledgling crime boss during Chicago’s Prohibition in the early 1900s. The player must use alcohol to expand their empire in this almost rogue-like game relying on turn-based combat.
This game, developed by the award-winning husband and wife duo of Brenda and John Romero, was teased in 2019 at E3 before getting a release window of early 2020. However, the release date for Empire of Sin (releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, macOS, and Microsoft Windows), was pushed off until early December 2020 in the West.
However, there was no word as to whether a partnership existed that allowed the release of Empire of Sin in Japan and Asia. Fortunately, a recent announcement by SEGA CORPORATION put minds at ease for those eagerly awaiting out East who want to virtually expand their criminal underground empire.
A partnership with Paradox Interactive allows for the distribution throughout Japan and Asia for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch through SEGA CORPORATION in Spring 2021.
“This partnership furthers Sega’s presence in Japan and Asian countries, and will be complementary to Sega’s original game franchises,” states the President and COO of SEGA CORPORATION, Yukio Sugino. This is a goal Paradox Interactive has always wanted to pursue but never had the opportunity to.
Now they have SEGA CORPORATION, possibly one of the biggest-named companies they could work with in order to distribute Empire of Sin out East. Empire of Sin will conquer the world so more players around the world can conquer the criminal underground.
