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.
