Natural Doctrine trailer introduces protagonists, teases monster battles

A trailer for Natural Doctrine, Lollipop Chainsaw publisher Kadokawa Games' first title from the company's internal studio, introduces the game's characters and teases a few monster battles.

Natural Doctrine is set in fortified castle town of Feste and its surroundings, where humans are locked in a resource war with the goblins, trolls, lizardmen and humanoids. The story centres on three human soldiers: Jeff, Vasilisa and Anca — who are introduced in the video above.

Gameplay consists of turn-based battles, and units are free to move across large areas, which is a unique feature of the game, according to producer Kensuke Tanaka.

"Games with small squares may allow you to stack characters into a single space, but with this game, you can move around anywhere you like within the area, which makes positioning important," he said.

The fantasy strategy role-playing game is currently in development for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. The title will offer single-player and multiplayer modes, as well as cross-play compatibility.
