I believe Meandor is right. Here is quote from www.kings-bointy.com : "King’s Bounty: The Legend is a knight saga, an exciting blend of role-playing adventure and tactical battles reviving glorious traditions of the legendary “King’s Bounty” game."
Role-playing adventure means there will be a lot of talking with NPCs.
No, I don't think so. HoMM has an incredible amount of text.
Think of: Town Bios, Hero Bios, Creature descriptions, creature ability descriptions, Rumours, Town Building descriptions, map object descriptions and so on.
Campaign Dialogues and texts are only a small part of the total amount of words in HoMM.
I've checked 2 other sites to try and figure out whether or not the september release is a fluke, and both sites (Gameranking.com, Walmart) have said the same, with walmart also pinpointing a day, Sept. 23, 2008.
Hopefully this isn't true because I just now figured out about this new Kings Bounty, and after what ive heard about it already and what i heard about the original one, i really cant wait to get my hands on it.
