Kalypso release the first screenshots from Tropico 3!

Worms / Bracknell, 6th March 2009

Kalypso Media have decided to treat you! OK, it’s Friday and we can’t send you to a Tropical Island for the weekend, but we can reveal some early development screenshots from Tropico 3, the third of the popular and highly successful strategy simulation series.

Tropico 3 is being developed by the top development team, Haemimont Games– also known for Imperium Romanum and GRAND AGES: ROME. All three titles are published by Kalypso Media. The storyline of Tropico 3 follows-up the first Tropico of the series. Hence, there will be a reunion with El Presidente!

Tropico 3 will be released world wide in late summer 2009.
