The tactical RPG is set to release on the Vita next month, but there will be a playable demo available ahead of the game’s Japanese release date. Check out the game in action in the latest trailer below;
In the game you will send out mercenaries into combat to fight as part of one of the four major factions in the game’s fantasy world of magic and swords.
Grand Kingdom features a turn-based battle system, putting emphasis on both short and long-ranged positioning. The game will also feature a ‘class-triangle’ system for fights, with mages beating melee units, melee units beating long-ranged shooters and long-ranged shooters beating mages.
Grand Kingdom will feature a fourth unit-type known as the ‘Specialists’, these include classes like the ‘Challenger’ and boast a variety of abilities. One thing of note is that the Specialists don’t have any notable strengths or weaknesses against other classes.
Although the demo for the game is announced at the end of the trailer, there is no set date for this just yet. For those that purchase the game after playing the demo, you will be pleased to know that the save data will carry over to the full game.
Set to release in Japan on November 19th, keep an eye on The Vita Lounge for any Grand Kingdom news we hear – including any details on an as yet unconfirmed Western localisation.
