How come it supports Simplified Chinese while Koei doesn't sell any of their games in the China app store?

I've always wanted to try this series, since I'm a fan of deep strategy games, but without a Lite or something to try first, I'm not going to spend that kind of money.

What I really want to see is Genghis Khan released for the Ipad. I played that game for weeks on end on the NES.

It seems to me that now you have INFINITE activities per turn, unless you choose to end your turn.

Has anyone actually put this through its paces yet? I wasn't even aware this sequel had come out. I would love to know if it improves upon the original in any way. Thinking about picking up this or Nobunaga's Ambition; NA's historical basis appeals to me more, but this one seems like it has more depth. I would really love it if I could actually affect the outcomes of battles (doesn't seem possible in NA).
