What number of techniques RPGs is just too many techniques RPGs? I am unsure there really is such a quantity, however after years of letting the Remaining Fantasy Ways sequence lie fallow, Sq. Enix appears to have rediscovered that individuals actually like these kinds of video games. It simply launched one named Triangle Strategy for the Nintendo Change and debuted one other throughout a PlayStation State of Play occasion on Wednesday: The DioField Chronicle, out later this yr. A trailer on Sq. Enix’s official YouTube channel confirms it is coming to Steam.
In contrast to the “HD-2D” type of Triangle Technique, The DioField Chronicle is a totally 3D technique recreation with a fantasy aesthetic that feels very Ways Ogre at first, which is usually a extra grounded sequence than Remaining Fantasy. However no, it is its personal factor, and the fight system appears to be like fairly completely different from the standard sq. grid of turn-based techniques video games. The DioField Chronicle would not have a grid and appears prefer it makes use of real-time-with-pause for giving orders to your troops.
From the trailer above we be taught a bit concerning the primary setup, which is traditional tactical RPG stuff: three kingdoms going to struggle, some hand-wringing over whether or not preventing is the appropriate path. It is shocking to see 3D cutscenes and character fashions in a style that is largely been 2D for therefore lengthy, however I assume The DioField Chronicle is Sq. Enix’s reply to the rising reputation of Nintendo’s Hearth Emblem sequence.
There is no date for The DioField Chronicle but, however Sq. Enix says it is coming in 2022. And I would guess that Sq. Enix has much more techniques RPG bulletins in retailer for this yr. The Nvidia GeForce Now leak from final September listed a number of Sq. Enix video games, together with Chrono Cross Remaster (now confirmed), “New technique recreation” (whats up, DioField) in addition to a Remaining Fantasy Ways Remaster and Ways Ogre Remaster. If there may be certainly such a factor as too many techniques RPGs, Sq. Enix is seemingly betting that 4 ain’t it.
