German developer Mimimi Productions whose last title Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun proved to be exceptional in practically every area, with a beautifully crafted world set in the Edo Period of Japan, have now formally announced Desperados III.
Real time strategical combat is their speciality, and Desperados III will no doubt make full use of Mimimi’s talent for crafting a tough and challenging scenario, much like Shadow Tactics did, with a team of five unique individuals all with their own skills and talents to overcome adversity.
The Wild West. A place where the law is made by those with a gun in their hands, and is enforced by the henchmen at their command. A place where death is no stranger and the undertakers are working overtime… especially when people start playing Desperados III.
This real-time tactics game, developed by German game studio Mimimi (who earned their spurs with the critically acclaimed title Shadow Tactics: Blades Of The Shogun), lets players command a band of Desperados led by fan-favourite gunslinger John Cooper, who’s hunting down his nemesis.
Heavily inspired by the first game of the franchise, Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive, Desperados III will allow the player to approach each mission with a wide variety of different solutions and routes. As the player’s gang will always be outnumbered, only smart use of both the environment and each Desperado’s unique character skills will guarantee a victorious outcome.
Desperados III will launch in 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, with no date as yet set in stone. So in the meantime, check out the release trailer.
About Desperados III
Desperados III is a modern take on the real-time tactics genre set in a harsh Wild West scenario.

Hunted by ruthless bandits and corrupt lawmen, the Desperados need to turn the tables against superior numbers and borderline-overwhelming odds in every single mission.
