By Spencer . September 11, 2013 . 10:50pm


First shown during Sony’s pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference, Natural Doctrine is an upcoming strategy RPG from Metal Max publisher Kadokawa Games. Natural Doctrine takes place in a world with different races at war with each other. Swords and spells prevail in this fantasy themed world. You are part of a convoy escorting miners and dreams of a fortress town. The world or the "natural doctrine" is about to change in a big way when during the story.


Natural Doctrine will be released on February 22, 2014, the same day PlayStation 4 launches in Japan. The game will also be released for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita as PSN downloads on the same day.

    Hardly leaves an impact when being presented as a PS4 Launch Title judging from the photo above. Maybe it’s just early images, low quality, or maybe even a screenshot of the PS3/Vita version.

    Edit: But it’s a PSN game? Maybe I should be more lenient on judging it?

      I personally don’t mind this game’s status as a PSN game.

      As long as SCEA doesn’t do an encore of the “PS3 has no games” joke or the reality that most of the PS3’s overall worldwide library is Japan-ONLY, I look forward for this game for the PS4.

      Shows how little is the difference between PS3 and PS4, and how powerful the PS3 was, Sony had to tone down a bit because of the PS3 launch price crisis.

      Anyway, one more reason for me to get PS4 early.

      • Kevin Schwarz

        I wouldn’t say that, because that’s compairing ps3 on its late stage and ps4 on its early stage.

    I hope it’ll actually feel like war! :>

  • Frederick Anchores Panahon

    That gameplay screenshot looks pretty good. Fantasy version of Valkyria Chronicles?

  • GHAmer

    the screenshot is not really look like a nextgen game
    need more detail for this game

    • ronin4life

      It is cross generation. As most games are and will be for… like, the next 3-5 years…

    The world or natural doctrine is about to change in a big way when during the story?
    When during the story what?
    That sentence is begging to be finished.

  • ShadowDivz

    For some reason… im thinking of Valhalla Knights 3.

  • Nate

    Wow is that a ps3 launch title? Not next gen graphics. They are looking being practically the only one or at least one of very few for a while. Though I have a feeling there will be quite a few at tgs for the Japan launch. No way they are going to pass that up.
