Yesterday, Bandai Namco announced a new anime-spawned tactical RPG for PS4, titled Record of Grancrest War.
Today, they followed up with a press release that included more information on the game, on top of a large gallery of screenshots.
While the game is defined a tactical RPG, the action is actually akin to RTS games, with troops moving on the battlefield in real time. On the battlefield, you can control both rank and file troops and hero characters from the anime and visual novels, creating large-scale battles against enemy forces. On top of field battles against other armies, you’ll also be able to fight fearsome monsters.
Players will be able to freely organize their army, and expand their territory to consolidate their domination on the continent. The story of the anime will be mixed with siege battles, administration of your domains, original stories, and more.
A limited edition costing 11,100 yen plus taxes will also be released in Japan, including a special box, a Blu Ray disk with special content, a soundtrack, and a booklet.
Parn and Deedlit from Record of Lodoss War (written by the same author) will appear as early purchase bonuses. The theme song titled “Takaga’s 100 years” will be performed by Japanese rock band Aqua Timez.
Record of Grancrest War will release in Japan on June 14th exclusively for PS4.
