NAtURAL DOCtRINE, developed and produced by Kadokawa Games (Steins;Gate, Lunar), seems to be designed as a pretty hardcore strategy RPG. Screenshots of the game show a bunch of different character combos and strategic formations where you appear to control a group vs group battle. While Natural Doctrine lets players change the difficulty level at any time, if any of your characters fall in battle it is game over!
The title screenshots evokes comparisons to Valkryia Chronicles, sharing many gameplay similarities. There are 5 listed characters, each with their own specialties (they fit fairly well into traditional RPG class roles) and in combat you can change your view between Third Person, Birds Eye (aerial shot of the battlefield), and an 'over the shoulder' view with limited zoom. You should be able to make good use of this feature as the differing heights of terrain in the battlefield will obstruct projectiles, but some seem to be destructable as well as surpassable with appropriatly angled projectiles and attacks.
NAtURAL DOCtRINE also supports cross-save functionality across all platforms!

A great tactic rpg game for the PS3 and Vita, very pleased with this one :D
I like TJRPG.
you must play.
Great story graphics and sound very fun game.
An excellent SRPG that fans of the genre will likely enjoy. The game also recently received a patch which fixed some of the difficulty and buggy issues.
It is a must have.
