Have a flood of screens from PS4 SRPG Natural Doctrine


7:30 PM on 12.02.2013



Kadokawa Games (publisher of recent Grasshopper games Lollipop Chainsaw and Killer is Dead) has a new strategy RPG from Patapon director Atsushi Ii coming to PS3, PS Vita, and PS4. Though no Western release has been announced, Natural Doctrine is hitting Japan February 22.

This is both the Japanese PS4 launch date and increasingly nearer as time does that thing where it moves at a constant rate, but feels like it's moving too quickly. "Can you believe it's already December?" the Facebook posts read.

Supplementing the trailer from a couple months ago, we finally have a flood of screenshots, which raises more questions than provides answers. We knew Natural Doctrine would eschew grids, but I expected a free-moving style similar to Valkyria Chronicles, rather than these portioned red and blue segments. I'm really curious how that's going to work. It looks different, for sure. Also a little bland and ugly, but hopefully playing on the Vita will eliminate some of that.

Also might start calling it Natty D.

Review: Natural Doctrine

Natural Doctrine is a strategy role-playing game with a sadistic side. It's a brutal and uncompromising experience, one keen on taxing players and pushing them to their limits with its intense difficulty. The architects behin...more

Natural Doctrine multiplayer set to inconsistent, yet still good music

The music goes from weird rock to just weird to typical RPG orchestral sounding. And still sounds alright.  Natty Doc (Natural Doctrine), the brutal, sort of ugly turn-based strategy game, also has mutliplayer...more

Natural Doctrine still looks ugly, but it might be fun

Natural Doctrine isn't exactly good-looking, but it's a strategy role-playing game with a protagonist named Jeff. I like strategy role-playing games. They're some of my favorites. And Jeffs are okay, I guess. It's not like I...more

Natural Doctrine is a brutal, sort of ugly turn-based strategy game

Sure, Natural Doctrine doesn't look great (well, the environments; it does look better in miniature on the Vita). It's a far cry from director Atsushi Ii's gorgeous minimalism in Patapon. But Kadokawa Games' first intern...more

NIS takes us to an island paradise, battles us, then travels back in time

NIS was a bit of a hidden treasure at E3. The publisher shared a booth with Atlus and it took me stopping and actually looking at what was on display at the demo station to put two and two together. The search was well worth it because I was rewarded with a closer look at three upcoming titles: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited, and Natural Doctrine.more

Natural Doctrine videos show uninterrupted gameplay, bare thighs

Hah, okay, this is still a bit confusing. I'm still not sure how the boxes work. Maybe they're range stat based and actions doesn't take moves separately from movement. But then why would there be a series of boxes? Also, wh...more
