First listen at the game's English dub.

Natural Doctrine

NIS America has released the second English trailer for Natural Doctrine, coming to PlayStation 4, PS3, and PS Vita on September 16 in North America and September 19 in Europe.

The strategy RPG follows a group of seasoned explorers and novices alike as they venture underground into dangerous caves to collect the coveted material known as “Pluton.” But when you go down to these mines, you encounter a new type of evil lurking underground, and must strategically defeat these new foes and warn the kingdom of their existence.

Watch the trailer below.

    Dat white text bubble… :/

    Still dont know whether I want this anymore since I’ve heard it has MAJOR balancing issues/insane difficulty (and I’m not THAT into SRPG’s besides Disgaea and a couple more old school ones)

    • Pyrofrost

      Yeah. Besides, if you are looking for SRPGs to play, there are much much much much much much better ones than this.

      • Lelouch Vi Britannia

        Disgaea D2 for Example. How about Fire Emblem

      • Budgiecat

        On the PS4?

        • Pyrofrost

          Apparently, you didn’t read the post I was responding to well enough, also it’s coming on PS4/3/V not just PS4.

          • Budgiecat

            I did I did…

    • Elvick

      They patched it already for some of those things. More checkpoints, the normal mode was made easier.

      Pointless to whine about issues in a launch game when there have been patches since then that will be included in the localized version.

      Just wait for impressions on the version we get, rather than people still holding on to launch impressions. It’s like people whining about Lair’s controls, when that was patched and it’s a fine game now. But people still act like it’s terrible.

      • Anime10121

        Oh did they? Good deal! I will indeed wait for impressions on it, but that makes me want the game again! People talk as if it was never fixed, so I had no idea! I did want the game because it did and still does look interesting… so I’ll see how the western release goes, and if its not brain poundingly hard, I’ll bite!

  • Yaro

    Im totally getting this despite it being NISA. Protag being named Jeff and and 3d models SRPG with actuall equipment on characters is too good to pass up for my vita.

  • nekolife

    I’ll buy it (yay dual audio!), but wasn’t very impressed with what I saw from Japanese streamers when it came out. The really low quality of PS4 streaming didn’t help though.

  • Lightthrower

    Looks pretty good for an english dub, really hope this turns out good (been replaying Vandal Hearts and Front Mission 5 lately for my SRPG fix).

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    I’ll skip this

    • Budgiecat

      Ohhh no you won’t! You will buy JEFF and you will like it mister!

      • Lelouch Vi Britannia

        Ordering me a Prince of Brittania, and Geass user.
        Now “Lelouch Vi Britannia” commands you to play Final Fantasy Tactics for the PS1.

        Interestingly enough I can talk like Johnny Yong Bosch who voices Lelouch. Just don’t ask me to talk like Jun Fukuyama.

  • ShadowFang

    Cannot wait. The strategy looks good, the dub sounds great… the presentation is just a mixed bag. I wonder why strategy games are usually so “lo-fi”? I mean, XCOM and Valkyria Chronicles are good productions, but everything else seems very modest. The characters look great here, but the rest just reminds me of Crimson Shroud, which is sort of disappointing for a console game.

    • Budgiecat

      Japan on the whole has been “lo-fi” for the past seven years. Kinda depressing really

  • 武神水樹

    Wow, looks like a PS2 game and the gameplay looks terrible

  • Elvick

    So mad at myself for putting off ordering the LE, I wanted that bag so bad.

  • hakumen001

    The VA is amazing….but the rest of the game is terrible… Sad cause I would buy it, but I dont think I can stomach the presentation. It looks PS1-2 era….
