Grand Knights History director Tomohiko Deguchi is bringing his new title Grand Kingdom to our handheld playground later this year.
Grand Kingdom takes place in a world filled with magic, weaponry, and warfare. In game you’ll have the option to pledge towards one of four nations in search of military conquest; fighting those who represent other nations and even taking or defending territory. As for the actual battles, they’re executed in a turn-based style with players issuing orders to their mercenaries as their turn – sort of like History Legends of War, but not quite as Western.
Though listed as an online RPG, it will have an offline mode as well – and promises a robust story experience backed by both full voice support and dialogue scenes with animated portraits.
Take a look at the trailer below for a better idea of what to expect;
Currently ~65% complete, Grand Kingdom is being developed by Deguchi’s studio MonoChro and is set to be published in Japan by Spike Chunsoft sometime later this year.
