Natural Doctrine, the first in-house game from Kadokawa Games, is a strategy RPG. You can command units using a standard top down viewpoint or select an over the shoulder camera. Why are there two perspectives? The overhead view lets you see all of the friendly and enemy units on the map, but you can’t see the line of fire. A unit may be blocking with a shield which would render an attack ineffective. That’s where the TPS perspective comes in handy.



Famitsu also introduced two more characters in Natural Doctrine. Mel (left) looks like a young girl, but she has the ability to control golems. Sieglinde is a hardened an experienced warrior.

    This game looks pretty slick. It had better get localized!

  • I’m liking the pros and cons of the overhead/3rd-person perspective aspects, so far.

    Really want to understand what those red and blue orbs on the right of the screen mean. If has already been explained, please post me a link, or explain it to me. Thanks in advance.

    If the game is as good as it sounds, I’ll have no problem buying it three times over.
