Natural Doctrine hits PlayStation 3, PS4 and PS Vita this year

Lollipop Chainsaw publisher Kadokawa Game Studio's debut title, Natural Doctrine, will launch in North America and Europe for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita this fall, NIS America announced today.

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

"During your first trip down into the depths of one of these mines, you and your new explorer friends quickly realize that things may be more dire than you had imagined as you encounter a brand-new type of evil lurking below the surface," the announcement reads. "You and your newfound friends must strategically defeat these new difficult foes and warn the kingdom of their presence before it's too late."

The game includes both single and multiplayer modes, cross-play and cross-save, and will be available digitally and physically. Natural Doctrine was released in Japan last month, following a delay.

NIS America, a subsidiary of Nippon Ichi Software, helps localize Japanese games. Previous titles include Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Etrian Odyssey 4: Legends of the Titan and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers.
