Xian Jian 3 brought a lot of changes to the popular Chinese RPG series –as a prequel (set before both – Xian Jian 1 & Xian Jian 2) the plot distances itself somewhat from the original story and it’s also the first in the series to be in 3D.
The gameplay has also received several overhauls; there are now dialogue and gameplay choices that effect the way lead character Jing Tian is viewed by the female members of the cast – for example say something offensive or allow them to fall in battle and not only will his favour with them fall but the ending will also change. Battles now use a Grandia-style action bar and an element-aligned formation for your party that bestows various strengths and weaknesses on them.
A 37 episode TV series was produced by Chinese Entertainment Shanghai in 2009 (Official blog here), as is to be expected with any TV adaptation some liberties were taken with the source material, as detailed in the Wikipedia page.
