Natural Doctrine Headed West In Fall On PS4, PS3, Vita

By   /   Apr 2, 2014

Publisher NIS America has announced that they’ll be delivering Natural Doctrine to Western audiences this fall. It releases tomorrow for Japan.

Moreover, the strategy roleplaying game (RPG) will be the first of the publisher’s stable to be made for Playstation 4. There’s still a version available for Playstation 3 and PS Vita as well.

In Natural Doctrine, a party system will make for traditional tactical battles on a playing field. Combat will be turn-based.

There is multiplayer for Natural Doctrine, though it may not be what you’d expect, since a previous announcement revealed it to be tied to a card game. Audio will be available both in English and Japanese.

You will, however, be able to play the game across platforms with the cross-play function. In addition, Natural Doctrine also has a cross-save ability, so progress from one console can be taken to the next one.

You’ll be able to take on missions freely, but only at a certain rate. Some objectives can be grinded a few times, before you’ll have to proceed with a story mission.

Natural Doctrine is also notoriously challenging. Going further on the Fire Emblem mechanism, characters that die won’t just suffer permadeath, but trigger the game to end.

If that’s too hard for you, it is possible to alter difficulty settings on the fly, ranging from easy to hard. Since there are about a million prompts on the screen’s user interface and the field gets sectioned into different parts, maybe take some time to soak it all in.
