Nippon Ichi Software shared a new trailer demonstrating features for its tactical RPG Hakoniwa Company Works, that mixes Minecraft-like gathering, breaking, and building features into a strategy game.
The video starts out with a demonstration of the game’s world, where everything is made out of blocks. And with everything being made of blocks, you’re able to destroy just about anything you set your eyes on.
By being able to break down blocks on a map, you can use it to your advantage with strategic positioning from the enemies. Additionally, breaking down blocks will give you materials that can then be used for crafting.
The game’s crafting feature lets you create a variety of objects, from useful buildings to interior decorations. You can also create objects such as furnaces to create even more items.
At 1:20, we see an example on how to power-up characters. This is done through crafting and placing objects in the homes they live in, which increases stats for every piece. There’s also an edit function to change the looks of your characters as well as support skills, gathering elements, and more.
Hakoniwa Company Works releases in Japan on July 13, 2017 for PlayStation 4.
