Kalypso has confirmed that the next installment in the Tropico series (Tropico 4) will be coming to the Xbox 360 as well as the PC.
The third in the series (and the first to be published by Kalypso) also made it to the 360, but back when the game was announced we if this would be the case again.
El Presidente’s return is scheduled for a second quarter release in 2011. This time, he’ll be able to hire and fire ministers to help push through controversial policies, have to deal with additional superpowers and tackle brand new natural disasters. All in a day’s work for a loveable island dictator.
A selection of twenty new buildings is planned, including shopping malls and mausoleums. There’ll be a stock exchange too, so maybe you’ll be able to run your own version of financial collapse by letting island banks place absurd bets on mortgages and then having to save their worthless hides with taxpayer money.
All of this will take place across a new campaign of twenty missions across ten maps. There are no screenshots as yet, so the one you see here is from Tropico 3.
