Natural Doctrine

Has all this talk about MMOs and ARPGs left you jonesing for some turn-based goodness? Did XCOM only whet that appetite?

If so, you're in luck. Kadowaka Game Studio saw fit to release into the wild (at least in Japan) today a cross-platform - PS3/PS4/Vita - entry into that space titled Natural Doctrine (official sites - JP/ENG).


And they've apparently agreed to let NIS America have a go at spawning the NorAm/Europe incarnation; that effort is supposed to bear fruit later this year (reference).

I was intrigued by this... how everyone (including the main character) can die, fire emblem style.

Gamespot has recently let a short preview into the wild. Of the things shown therein, two points bear specific mention:
  • yes, cross-platform multiplayer is a thing; and
  • there are no microtransactions.
Though I do wonder about the following:
  • this is a turn-based game - why shouldn't asynchronous play be an option? Many chess games do this; Frozen Synapse does it...
  • will we see larger multiplayer setups than 1v1?

I heard this game is balls-to-the-wall hard difficulty.

Well, yeah, it's really hard. Also the stiff animation is kinda killing it for me. I really wish it were another Valkyrie Chronicle, though.

Such a pity Sega seems willing to let that wither on the vine. To this day I remain convinced there are at least two other types of games supportable by the IP: a Battlefield-type 3PS, and a larger-scale tactical game in the vein of EndWar - the engine is certainly capable enough, and all the assets are in fact there.

Sega seems to let a lot of games wither on the vine recently, particularly every Platinum Game they publish >_>

Advise - data received

A new trailer giving an overview of the multiplayer modes is now in the wild.


Some looking around also turned up about ninety minutes' worth of gameplay with commentary from a pair of NIS America team members.
