Kalypso Media has announced that Tropico 3, the latest entry in the popular city building strategy series, will be released on Xbox 360 in addition to the previously announced PC version in September 2009.

"The Tropico 3 release on the Xbox 360 is a first for Kalypso and marks the beginning of an exciting entry into the console market," said Stefan Marcinek, Global Managing Director Kalypso Media Group. "Throughout 2010 Kalypso Media have plans to release four titles in tandem on both the Xbox 360 and PC. Through this we will be able to demonstrate our strong PC Line up with new multiplatform games and this gives us some great opportunities for the year ahead."

The Xbox 360 release of Tropico 3 will be developed by Haemimont Games in Bulgaria, the same studio responsible for the development of the PC version.

Tropico 3 will be released on Xbox 360 and PC this September.
