Earlier this year in March, Square Enix announced a new “deeply strategic RPG” called The DioField Chronicle – created by a team of “veteran” strategy developers at Lancarse Ltd. It’s set within a world of honor and political intrigue, requiring players to direct units through multiple combat encounters using a ‘Real-Time Tactical Battle’ system.
It’s scheduled to arrive at some point this year, and now in an update, this upcoming Switch release has been rated by the ESRB. The game has received a ‘T’ for teen rating and contains blood, mild suggestive themes and violence. Here’s the full description, which also sheds some light on what else to expect from this upcoming release:
“This is a role-playing game in which players control mercenaries battling rival factions in a fantastical world. From a top-down perspective, players engage in tactical battles against human soldiers and fantastical creatures (e.g., giant wolves, dragons, the undead). Players select attack moves from a menu as their party members move around the battlefield; characters use guns, swords, and magic spells/energy blasts to defeat enemies. Cutscenes depict further instances of violence and blood: characters impaled by swords; soldiers battling with swords/lances, amid splatters of blood; still images of characters lying in pools of blood. In one storyline, a villain kidnaps village women, forcing them to work in a brothel.”
