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!

Good game, haven't had a lot of time to play it, but what little I have played had seemed fun to me.
Great story and very fun game
Those who love hardcore jrpg will love natural doctrine. The game play is very challenging and each choices you made will determine your actions. Either you die or thrive.
