If you’re Square Enix, how do you follow the release of Triangle Strategy? Well, you announce another bafflingly named strategy RPG for PlayStation consoles, of course. The DioField Chronicles is SQUARE ENIX with caps-lock on: it’s got the confusing user interface, dreadful English dub, and cliché fantasy plot. And it’s coming later this year.
One of two big new announcements from the Japanese publisher – but perhaps not the game PlayStation fans wanted to see – it promises a “unique and beautiful world that blends fantasy, medieval, and modern-day influences with a deep yet innovative real-time battle system”. You can find out more on the PS Blog – or, y’know, just watch the trailer. You’ll get the gist of it pretty quick.
