For PS4 owners waiting for new games to play on their next gen consoles, they can look forward to NAtURAL DOCtRINE coming to the PS4, as well as PS3 and PS Vita this September. Being the first game developed internally by Kadokawa game studio, this third person strategy game looks to be somewhat like what XCOM : Enemy Unknown might looked like if it were developed by the team behind Dark Souls. Coming to North America on September 16th and Europe on September 19th, the game is already available to preorder on NISA’s Online Store for PS4, PS3 and Vita, along with the usual exclusive special editions. For gamers in Europe, the NISA Europe Online Store will be going live this week, so you’ll be able to preorder the European version of the Collector’s edition on there soon.

About the game:
Seasoned explorers and novices alike venture underground into dangerous caves to collect the coveted material known as Pluton. On your first trip into the depths of these mines, your company of explorers quickly realizes that things may be more dire than you had imagined when you encounter a brand-new type of evil lurking below the surface. Will your band of explorers be able to defeat this new threat and warn the kingdom of their presence before it’s too late?
Tactician’s Delight – Strategists and tacticians rejoice – this is the first hardcore strategy game to hit the PS4! The game won’t pull any punches with players that want to go in with guns and swords blazing. In this game, should any party member die, it’s game over for you!
Online Multiplayer – Once you’ve cut your strategic teeth in single player mode, you can test your wits against other battle-hardened warriors in cross-platform online multiplayer. The more you play, the more characters you’ll have available to you so you can build a troop of goblins, golems, and soldiers! You can also use these characters in the online co-op mode.
Savage World – No one is safe in this post-apocalyptic world. Hordes of soldiers, giant monsters, and booby-traps abound, and the only way through is experimentation. You’ll have to adjust your character skill sets and item combinations to optimize your party, while battle tactics like strategic linking and character positioning will be key to surviving this harsh world!
