Kingdom Under Fire II has been in development for a long time. A very long time.
Originally announced in early 2008 as a PC and home console game, Kingdom Under Fire II was supposed to hit the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. Delays followed, there were rumors of development problems, and the console game was never released. The game's official site lists the PC online service as "planned" for this year in South Korea.
This week, it was announced on NoCut News(via tipster Sang) that Kingdom Under Fire II has shifted from the PlayStation 3 to the PS4, making the game the first Korean title announced for the new PlayStation. According to Blueside, the game's developer, the PS4 version will be similar to the PC version, but will have console exclusive content. No word yet on an Xbox One release.
Kingdom Under Fire II's PlayStation 4 release is slated for a mid-2014 release. Fingers gently crossed!
