Three nations battle for control of the dwindling resources of salt and iron

 

Command a group of warriors as Serenoa, heir to the Kingdom of Glenbrook in a tangled plot where your decisions make all the difference. Key choices you make will bolster one of three convictions—Utility, Morality, Liberty—which together make up Serenoa’s world view and influence how the story will unfold. When faced with truly momentous decisions, multiple characters will weigh in by casting their votes on the Scales of Conviction. In these moments, the allies and decisions you make can determine the fate of whole nations and the continent of Norzelia itself.

 

Control multi-tiered battlefields to strategically secure victory

 

Finding the best location in turn-based battles can tip the tide of combat in your favor. Position units on higher ground to take control of the battlefield and gain the advantage with increased range. You can also flank enemies on both sides, then strike from behind for a powerful follow-up attack. Elemental chain reactions are also an important part of combat. For example, use fire to melt icy terrain, then use lightning to electrocute it. Push the enemy into the electrified water to see sparks fly!

Yes, but arguably a bit better I'm shocked to say!

 

Better how? :thinking:

This has quickly become my most anticipated rpg after playing the demo. Big FFT:WotL vibes, and an art style I love. 

 

After hearing your and Vic's impressions I am excited! With it being so far out hopefully the switch pro will launch before then.

So I’ve barely played any turn based tactical RPGs. A little Banner Saga and a little Ogre Battle back in the day. Which is what this seems to be? Tried it just because it looked fun in the video and I’m really into it. The story seems cool and the one battle I did on the bridge was a lot of fun.  I have no idea if this a good representation of the genre but I’ve enjoyed what I played so far and am actually looking forward to the full release. Never too old to try new stuff haha

It certainly has the Octopath look graphically. Which is a good thing IMO.  And I love strategic RPG’s. Fire Emblem is my favorite in that genre. I’m excited for this game.

It's like FF Tactics plus. Each world map is prettier, more interactive, and has layers to it. The maps are little living dioramas, and they really draw you in! So far the different skill trees for each character class seem more interesting and the way you can stack your characters around an enemy to gain multiple bonus strikes is great! Everything is tactics or tactics done better right down to the magic and power attacks that pop quite a bit more due to the improved power of the hardware (a weird thing to say about the switch but true in context to comparing it to the PS1). OH and the music and voice acting are very good as well!

Can't you stack attacks in the Dsigea games? I'm pretty sure there are a lot of tactical RPGs out there that you can do this in.

Absolutely, it's not unique now, and can be found in several other tactics series, but I'm describing how this game compares to FF Tactics specifically, as my claim is that it's better FF:T.

Specifically the claim, or that run on sentence I used to make it? My God, the commas are endless! :daydream:

 

Speaking of blasphemy and FFT, War of the Lions is on ios, but I've yet to fire it up. Do you know if this is a straight up port or have they done anything to the gameplay?

It is a port ,but it's a port of a port, sporting the overhauled CG cutscenes introduced in the "war of the lions" version, but otherwise its left largely unchanged. I believe there are a few menu based QoL improvements as well.

I played Tactics on my Android, and the touch controls are fantastic - the port is excellent (rare for Square Enix) and looks sharp and beautiful to boot. A rare recommend from me for a mobile port. Definitely worth playing if you don't want to emulate the PSP version on your PC. It is a port of the superior War of the Lions version.

A demo this early is strange. It’s cool that they announced it and had something playable right away, but they don’t even have a title. I can’t run out to my local Gamestonk and place a preorder, can I?

You can't even preorder it on Nintendo's website.

 

Gamestonk on the other hand, I'm sure they'd gladly take a preorder if you went in in person.

No that's for the mediocre gacha game "War of Visions". Granted it's better than FFTA and that Fire Emblem gacha game but thats a pretty low bar to cross.

The demo is out so early so they can get feedback and make changes!

You can probably pre order Fallout 5 from Gamestonk and to their credit if they are still around in 2028 they’d probably have a copy for you.
