Remember Dept. Heaven Episode IV, better known as Knights in the Nightmare? Sting announced their new was coming out this year. Now, the official page has been updated with a firm release date. Japan will get the turn based RTS on July 17.
The genre sounds a bit confusing, but that’s what Sting calls Knights in the Nightmare. As you can see from the screenshot on the right there is a familiar looking isometric battle grid, but you attack/defend in real time.
The plot is still mostly unknown as is if a North American publisher will pick it up. Atlus? Yeah, they’re the most likely candidate, but if you’re brave enough to import you have the date.
