Developer Lancarse and publisher Square Enix have unveiled a brand-new six-minute-long trailer for The DioField Chronicle, with this one getting newbies straight into the heart of the action giving a “game explanation” of sorts. The DioField Chronicle is launching on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam on September 22, with a demo coming out tomorrow, August 10. Check out the “game explanation trailer” for The DioField Chronicle below.

While the trailer is in Japanese, it gives a somewhat good visual explanation of how The DioField Chronicle plays - a turn-based strategy RPG, unlike Final Fantasy Tactics or XCOM. The DioField Chronicle will also feature real-time strategy elements as shown in the trailer.

The DioField Chronicle is set on a fictional war-torn continent far away, where a certain nation called the Kingdom of Alletain sits in the close vicinity of a conflict between the Trovelt-Schoevian Empire and the Rowetale Alliance. With the defeat of the Alliance, the Empire now turns their attention to Alletain. The DioField Chronicle follows the story of four mercenaries from the Kingdom of Alletain, collectively known as the Blue Foxes: Andrias Rhondarson, Fredret Lester, Iscarion Colchester, and Waltaquin Redditch.

The DioField Chronicle features a well-known cast of Japanese developers in Lancarse. The studio was best known for its co-developing work with Atlus on Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, one of the most acclaimed entries in the long-running series. The game also features character design from Taiki, best known for his work on Square Enix’s Lord of Vermilion trading card game series. Ramin Djawadi and Brandon Campbell, both known for their work on the Game of Thrones TV series, will also be composing music for the game.

The DioField Chronicle is now available for pre-orders across all platforms, and comes in two distinct editions. A Standard Edition pre-order will net players the Rhopasto Knife weapon and the Recruit’s Bangle accessory. The Digital Deluxe Edition, besides other bonuses, will include an exclusive color for the same Rhopasto Knife and a Recruits Bangle as well. Players who pre-purchased this edition are also entitled to the game’s early access beginning September 20, two days before the game’s global release date.
