NIS America is holding a poll from March 2, 2016 to April 2, 2016 in which participants will choose which kingdom they will be serving when Grand Kingdom releases in North America on June 21 (or June 17 in Europe). Three random winners will be chosen and receive a copy of Grand Kingdom Standard Edition. However one lucky winner will receive the Grand Kingdom Grand Edition which would usually cost you $99.99. Both editions will be available for PlayStation 4 or PlayStation Vita depending on the winners preference.
Each kingdom is given a short description and the actual voting is held on their Facebook page, you can read the excerpts below.
If you’re a proud and noble fellow (or lass – or Prinny) you might find Landerth to be a good home. This nation is ruled by the kind yet stern Gladius Ringland. Her people are beholden to the laws of her land and place a high level of importance on justice. They are also incredibly brave — the queen herself has been known to join the front lines to battle with her troops, which may have inspired a minstrel or two to write a song for her. If you’re a paragon of the community, or a straight-laced knight, you’d be right at home in Landerth.
The people of Valkyr are what you might expect of those who live the life of clansmen wedged between enormous mountains and a sea without end. They live a life of battle, and the strongest among them come to rule. Their current leader, Graham Berngarde, is said to have accomplished amazing feats — some have even claimed that he decapitated a dragon with a single swing of his sword, while I’ve heard tell that he slaughtered an entire troop of soldiers using only his fists. But, well, you know how rumors are. If you’re not afraid of proving yourself in a fight, and live for the thrill of battle, the people of Valkyr will welcome you with open arms.
Fiel is a nation ruled by Precia Teller. Who is Precia? Well, she’s a compassionate woman who sees herself as sort of a mother figure for her subjects despite appearing remarkably youthful. She cares deeply about the people of her nation, many of whom are refugees who have found their way to her care one way or another. You might not know it from looking at her, but Precia is actually a witch, and is adept in the ways of magic. It wouldn’t be unfair to say that those who desire belonging and acceptance would find Fiel to be a perfect home.
Magion… sounds like ‘Magic’, huh? I wonder if that was on purpose. Nah… Anyway! This is a land of magic, and is ruled by a wise young man by the name of Julius uh… Wiseman. The people of Magion are resourceful, I mean, they have to be because they live smack-dab in the middle of a barren wasteland. Without much in the way of natural resources, the people have adapted and forged their way forward on the strength of their intellect, and now wield magical technology many other residents of Resonail may only marvel at. Those who are quick of wit and resourceful in their planning just might find themselves in Magion, if there was some sort of magical hat choosing where they ended up.
