The Diofield Chronicle

The DioField Chronicle will launch on September 22, 2022 in Japan and overseas. After confirming the news last week, Square Enix and developer Lancarse released a launch date trailer for The DioField Chronicle. It shows a mix of gameplay and narrative footage. It highlights characters involved in the story, as well.

Check out the trailer below, via the official DioField Chronicle YouTube channel.

The DioField Chronicle launch date trailer highlights the game’s aesthetic. The game world blends magical fantasy with early-industrial elements. Soldiers wield spears, bows, and swords and wear armor, but also fight with firearm-style weapons and enter battle on metal ships bearing artillery cannon. Amidst the chaos of war, a band of elite, independent mercenaries called Blue Fox arises, their deeds entering legend.

Characters like Andreas Rhondarson, Fredret Lester, Iscarion Colchester, Waltaquin Redditch lead The Blue Fox. They’re shown questioning their actions and making decisions about how to involve themselves in the war that grips the land of The DioField Chronicle.

The distinctive “diorama”-style battle systems are shown off in The DioField Chronicle launch trailer. In-game graphics are shown in “tilt-shift” style, a camera technique designed to make large-scale objects look like miniature models. Battles will take place in real-time, and players can assign units to move along pre-planned waypoints to flank enemy forces.

Non-battle footage from the trailer also shows a strategic-scale map, where players can move their forces on the map, like generals on campaign.

The DioField Chronicles launches on Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on September 22, 2022. Japanese digital storefronts will host a playable demo on August 10, 2022.
