Spike Chunsoft recently announced that they’re working on a new tactical RPG with Grand Knights History director Tomohiko Deguchi, called Grand Kingdom. Here’s a look at the game’s first trailer.
The trailer introduces a bit of the game’s story and how it takes place in a fantasy world full of swords and magic, where you’ll send mercenaries out into combat. We get a look at some of the characters that will fight alongside your party as part of the four powers.
You’ll play through the story parts of the game offline, with gameplay action shown at the 0:55 mark of the video. While the game is mainly all about the strategic gameplay, there are also some action elements that look fast-paced, too.
As previously reported, the battles are turn-based, but you’ll need to put a lot of thought into your positioning. Depending on how you enter commands, you’ll also pull off combos as part of the mix of skills you dish out to the enemies.
The game has online features that will revolve around having players go against others from the different factions. There will be some sort of territory-expanding features, as well as attacking others and defending yourself from enemy invasions.
Grand Kingdom is currently in development for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
