Natural Doctrine from Kadokawa Games is a strategy RPG with a movement system reminiscent of Valkyria Chronicles. The game also has an online mode and it’s a card battling game.

 

Players create a deck of cards with different monsters and creatures from the world of Natural Doctrine. The cards are identical to what they are in single player mode with the same skills, equipment, and status. Each card has a different cost, size, and Pluton amount which players need to think about when creating a deck.

 

Cards have different sizes and can have fractions like 1.5. The largest card size is 8. Players also have to look at the cost for each card when making their deck. During co-op play, each player uses a mini-deck. Players can send friends an invitation to join them in co-op play.

 

After making a Natural Doctrine card deck you search for a battle room or partner with someone for co-op play.Then you take on a battle mission and earn card points when you complete the mission to get more cards. There are three kinds of card packs (bronze, silver, gold) to purchase and the higher price packs increases the chance of getting rare cards. In co-op mode, players get a bonus amount of CP depending on their rank.

 

Natural Doctrine comes out on April 3 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation 4 in Japan.

    “There are three kinds of card packs (bronze, silver, gold) to purchase and the higher price packs increases the chance of getting rare cards.”

    Ahh… no. How about ‘no’? Would you prefer ‘no’? Or just maybe, ‘no’.

    I see they’re evolving the free-to-pay game marketplace, into free-to-pay-more-or-less. :(

      It didn’t actually say you had to pay real money for the card packs.

      “Then you take on a battle mission and earn card points when you complete the mission to get more cards.”

      Sounds like you buy card packs with points earned in-game.

    Huhhh…? That’s unexpected, considering how different the main game is. Seems like two whole different things, but maybe I should think of this as more of a mini-game that’s taken a life of it’s own.

    I’m really tempted, but I may wait to see if any word of English release is announced

    Now this is totally great!…
    Sadly, the chances of an english version are next to none, and this game is going unnoticed even in Japan itself, judging from the preorder charts… :(

    ……”Natural Doctrine’s Online Mode” :D “Is A Card Battling Game” :( “With purchasable card packs!” >:(
    Anyways, I still hope for an English Release since the PS4 had NO JRPG’s
