Square Enix and gaming publication Game Informer have shared 16 minutes of new English gameplay for the former’s upcoming tactical JRPG, The DioField Chronicle.
Various combative settings are presented alongside interactions with players and activities to pursue outside of missions. To be fair, these images here sold me on the game. There’s undeniable care poured into its corners despite the budget not being exceptionally high. For those who don’t know, a free demo should be launched tomorrow.
You can see the new gameplay in English for The DioField Chronicle below:
The DioField Chronicle features a tactical RPG system with a new cast of characters. Additionally, the developer shared that the soundtrack and story are an important focus in this new adventure. The gameplay will introduce a new real-time tactical combat system for players to master. This world mixes fantasy, medieval and modern facets with players witnessing the kingdom of Alletain, ruled by the Shaytham dynasty on the island of DioField, facing conflict for the first time in 200 years.
The reason for this rise in conflict lies mainly in the presence of the mineral Jade, used for the creation of magic and sorcery, and the island is home to plenty of it. The Alliance and the warring Empire in the nearby region are looking for Jade for obvious purposes. Players will control Blue Fox, a band of elite mercenaries.
This title is developed by Lancarse Ltd, a team of veteran strategy developers. Concept art is designed by Isamu Kamikokuryo, who provided artwork for Final Fantasy XII and Final Fantasy XIII. Additionally, the composers are Ramin Djawadi and Brandon Campbell, best known for their work on game of thrones.
The DioField Chronicle releases for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on September 22, 2022, worldwide. A free demo is also coming on August 10, 2022.
