Hearts of Iron III

New movie focuses on Japan's war in the Pacific.

New York, 18th June, 2009 - Paradox Interactive has today released brand new in-game footage for Hearts of Iron III, the long awaited third installment of the best selling and critically acclaimed World War II Strategy series. Set to release on August 4th, the game was recently awarded the Readers Choice “Best of E3 – PC Strategy” on Voodoo Extreme, along with being nominated for the “Best of E3 – PC Strategy” on IGN and Gaming Excellence.

About the movie:

This brand new Hearts of Iron III movie depicts the strategic problems Japan faced during the Second World War. Long supply lines stretching over the Pacific Ocean were vulnerable to hostile navies, but were needed to transport resources back to the Home Islands in order to fuel the war effort in China. This called for a large and powerful navy, and an inevitable conflict with the United States.
