Enlight announced today they have acquired the North American rights to release Nemesis of the Roman Empire (known in Europe as 'Celtic Kings The Punic Wars'). Continuing on the traditions of the award-winning original Celtic Kings: Rage of War from Haemimont Games, Nemesis of the Roman Empire will explore the three Punic wars between Rome and Carthage in 264-146 B.C. and will include the famous campaigns of Hannibal and Scipio Africanus.

For centuries, Italy was renowned as the center of civilization with its core thriving in the glory of Rome. The influence of the "eternal city" extended well beyond its borders and ultimately encompassed the known world. Eventually, the paths of Carthage and Rome crossed and the whirlwind of the conflict that evolved included both Iberians and Gauls. For more than 100 years, great commanders fought ferocious battles and established new borders in the world in what came to be known as The Punic Wars.

Nemesis of the Roman Empire, inspired by the history of The Punic Wars, allows players to experience the brutal warfare between the Romans and Carthaginians. The two new nations in this next installment, Carthaginians and Iberians, are accompanied with their own historical units and buildings. In addition, this title will contain two unique single-player campaigns, new terrain types, custom maps and special enhancements to the Celtic King engine. While remaining true to the game's original concept, Nemesis of the Roman Empire incorporates real-time strategy and role-playing elements, offering players a distinctive experience in discovering a conflict that occurred over 2000 years ago.

"We are focused on identifying the best international developers and establishing long-term strategic partnerships with them," said Trevor Chan, chief executive officer of Enlight. "Haemimont Games is a talented development team and has created a unique brand with the original Celtic Kings title. We are excited to work with them on bringing this next installment to the North American market."

Nemesis of the Roman Empire is being published by Enlight Interactive and will be available at $29.99 for the PC this March. For additional information on features for this title as well as future updates, please visit the game's official website
