Lastly, for the fans that enjoy oriental-themed products, the new Sword and Katana series of laptops satisfy the balance of Yin and Yang with the Sword featuring white color while the Katana taking on the black side. Tsuyoshi Nagano, renowned for this work in the “Romance of the Three Kingdoms” game, is in charge of giving the 2 series a special design fitted towards the Asian side of things.
