Bandai Namco has announced a new Tactical RPG that they will be bringing to PlayStation 4 later this year, which is called Record of Grancrest War. The game has currently only been given a release date for Japan for June 14th, though it’s likely that a localization will be coming at some point.
The following is an overview of the story provided by the publisher for Record of Grancrest:
“Atlatan, a continent where Chaos dominates everything. Frightened by the disasters caused by the Chaos, the people live under the protection of “Lords” who possess “Crests,” the power to suppress those calamities.
However, the Lords eventually abandon the idea of “protection of the people,” and break into a war to fight for each other’s Crests and territory—. During that, a solitary mage named Siluca, who despises Lords without ideals, meets Theo, a a wandering knight on a training journey in order to free his hometown from tyrannical rule.
Through the high-handed tactics of Siluca, who is touched by Theo’s ideals, they sign a master and servant contract and aim to bring change to a continent thrown into war.”
For those wanting to see the game in action, the publisher also released a Japanese trailer for the game below. The footage shown here is looking pretty solid, so fans of the genre should definitely keep an eye out for this one.
Record of Grancrest War will release exclusively for PlayStation 4 on June 14th in Japan, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on release dates for other regions.
