Kadokawa Game Studio's tactical role-playing game Natural Doctrine is coming to North America on Sept. 16 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, publisher NIS America announced today.

The game will arrive in Europe three days later on Sept. 19, and pre-orders have opened up for the release on the official NIS America store, including a number of limited edition extras on each platform.

The game is available to pre-order for $60 on PS4 systems, $50 on PS3 systems and $40 on PS Vita, while limited editions are available for an extra $20 on each individual console. Bonuses include an art book, poster and an explorer's bag.

The strategy role-playing game sends players into caves to collect Pluton, described as a coveted material. The game's story focuses on a resource war between goblins, trolls, humans, lizardmen and humanoids.

Kadokawa is probably best known as the publisher behind Lollipop ChainsawNatural Doctrine, which launched in Japan earlier this year after a delay, is the company's debut title.
