Nippon Ichi Software revealed information about the characters and systems in Xicatrice. Xicatrice will be an RPG in which you play as a teacher who lives a normal school life. However, during emergencies you will become the leader of a special group of students who will undergo dangerous missions. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

As a teacher, you will have to take care of your students’ physical conditions, as well as teach them their lessons. In these lessons, you’ll be able to help them develop skills to use in battle. The battle system will be a turn-based one in which you pick from your students’ suggestions. Only the student you chose will move that turn, but there are some passive skills that allow non-chosen students to attack.

There will also be a skill build element. Each skill is part of a major and learning a skill requires your students to meet certain conditions. For example, in order to learn Resurrection, you’ll need to be part of the Healing Arts major, have 44 Concentration, and 53 Logic. Though you can give your students any skills you want from the 300 in the game, they have their own strengths and weaknesses.

There are non-student characters in Xicatrice as well. Renshi Kamiya will be the protagonist. He was also a student with superpowers but lost them in a certain incident. Now he is a teacher and the leader of RAUT 302nd Unit. His co-workers include Takayuki Akutsu, who is the squad leader of AUT, and Rui Akutsu, who can use a special gadget called CUAD to help students overcome emotional scars.

Xicatrice is in development for the PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch. It will come out on June 29, 2023.
