Art direction is what makes a game truly memorable in a visual sense, and it's fair to say that Vanillaware is a master of the craft. The Japanese developer has been creating gorgeous titles for generations now, and its latest effort, Unicorn Overlord, looks to be another jaw-dropping work of art.
Vanillaware's trademark style is fully intact here, and the game's medieval fantasy setting gives the studio license to craft some lovely armour designs and picturesque countryside landscapes. Based on what we know so far, Unicorn Overlord is a character-based strategy RPG that incorporates player choice and leans heavily into levelling up and enhancing your ever-growing army.
If you like the look of this one, we'd strongly recommend checking out the Vanillaware games that have just been added to PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium. The selection includes the excellent 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, stunning dungeon crawler Dragon's Crown, and immense Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir. It's fair to say that expectations are high for Unicorn Overlord.
Unicorn Overlord is coming to PS5 and PS4 in March next year, but are you excited for Vanillaware's return? Gather your troops just so you can gawk at the scenery in the comments section below.
