Square Enix has just announced a new strategy RPG called Chronicle of Diofield. Created by the “veteran” strategy team at Lancarse Ltd, it’s filled with “amazing” visuals and sounds and promises to satisfy genre fans and new ones alike.
Briefly, the title is described as a “deeply strategic RPG” set in a world of honor and political intrigue. As the story progresses, players will guide units through multiple combat encounters using a “real-time tactical combat” system.
combat happens in real time – you can pause the game to give orders and inspect the battlefield, but the world and enemies will not sit still and wait for your troops to make their move.
This means you’ll have to carefully assess the conditions on the front lines, be decisive in your orders, and use a wide range of skills, classes, and equipment wisely to gain the upper hand. And, of course, it all takes place on stunning battlefields that combine diorama and reality and give the game a distinct and beautiful visual style.
Here are some of the veterans working on this project:
This includes character design by Taiki (Lord of Vermillion III and IV), concept art by Isamu Kamikokurio (FINAL FANTASY XII and FINAL FANTASY XIII), and script design by Yuu Oshima (Fire Emblem Awakening).
It also includes an amazing soundtrack composed by world-renowned composer Ramin Djawadi, best known for his work on Game of Thrones, Westworld, Pacific Rim and more!
And here is the full story of the game:
The game takes place in a unique world that combines fantasy, medieval and modern elements. Under the rule of the Shaytham dynasty, the Allethane Kingdom on DioField Island has lived peacefully for 200 years, but the rise of new powers and modern magic means that is about to change.
The realm of Allethane is rich in jade, a precious mineral valued for its use as a primary ingredient in magic and sorcery. Of course, such a valuable resource will always attract attention, and inevitably both the Empire and the Alliance turn their eyes to the island.
During this conflict, you take command of a group of elite mercenaries who call themselves the Blue Fox. But will this name be a symbol of hope for the fighting Allethenes, or will it herald the darkest tragedy? …and when will you be able to find out?
Again, will the game release later this year in 2022 and will be released on Switch and a few other platforms? How do you think? Tell us below.
