El Presidente would like to invite all Xbox 360 gamers to view the delights of the tropical paradise that is Tropico 3. Kalypso Media have today released the very first screenshots for the Xbox 360 version of their forthcoming title. Tropico 3 is the third game in this highly popular and successful strategy series and will stick to the theme of the original Tropico game.
Tropico 3 on the Xbox 360 will be an almost identical port of the PC version except for some of the interface elements which will be specially adapted for the console. Tropico 3 will mark the publishing debut of Kalypso Media on the Xbox 360 platform.
Tropico 3 on the Xbox 360 will be released shortly after the PC version in the Autumn of 2009.
