Natural Doctrine Allows You To Die In Later Stages, But It Won’t Get Any Easier

By Sato . February 20, 2014 . 4:30am

Natural Doctrine producer Kensuke Tanaka recently shared his enthusiasm for the SRPG genre, and how he’d like to see it evolve with the upcoming game. In the game’s latest update, courtesy of Famitsu.com, we’re introduced to a new character, along with some details on the change of death, later in the game.

 

Ingobert:

Ingobert is a sage who is capable of using powerful magic, and is also a member of the senate. He is proud and elite, and makes no attempt to hide his discrimination towards the lower-class citizenry.  He seems to have some sort of plan going on, related to the Grion.

 

In case you’re wondering, the Grion are heteromorphic monsters that go against humans and demi-humans.

 

From the start of Natural Doctrine until sometime in the middle stages, when one of your characters die, you’ll see the game over screen. However, towards the latter part of the game there will be a change.

 

If one of your characters dies, you won’t get a game over and you’ll have to try finishing the fight with the remaining members. However, that only means you’ll be facing the fierce attacks from the Grion, and there may even be some parts where you might have no other choice but to sacrifice some of your allies.

 

Natural Doctrine will be released on March 19, 2014 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.

    I thought it said “groin,”…. Well this looks good. Good strategy and nice artwork hope it matches up to Tactics Ogre and Disgaea.

    • dawnbomb

      i sincerely hope it does not match up to disgaea

      I want a strategy game, not a strategy sim.

      • Notquitesure?

        What do you mean sorry?

        • dawnbomb

          disgaea isn’t a strategy game, its a OHKO fest. all you do is walk up and instantly kill your opponent. don’t get me wrong, disgaea can be *something* like fun, but its absolutely not a strategy game.

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    When I read this I almost hoped it’d be like Fire Emblem where the characters die indefinitely.

    • God

      They do…

  • Kai2591

    NOBODY DIES UNDER MY WATCH!

    • God

      As a Fire Emblem player i know the feel, NOBODY dies on my watch, NOBODY.

      • Kai2591

        ikr~

  • Paul Rodriguez

    I hope this game gets a western release. I needs me a PS4 RPG.
