PRE-ORDER HIGHLIGHTS: Mobile Suit Gundam Side Stories + Limited Edition, Demon Gaze, NAtURAL DOCtRINE, and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (PS4)!
Welcome to our Pre-Order Highlights! This week we feature some really exciting games from Japan coming out April and May; and while some are imports, Demon Gaze is finally localized!
PlayStation®Vita [Dungeon Crawl RPG]
Kadokawa and Experience studios are going to bring a new face to Dungeon RPGs. Demon Gaze combines exciting battles, eerie labyrinths and blood boiling scenes together. The gamer becomes the owner of the third eye. These chosen warriors have the power to subdue demons and recruit them into their stable.
With your team of demons, set out to the labyrinths of Misrid to carry out missions. Demons have specific powers, and can be very useful during battle, however, be careful, because they can go berserk and attack your comrades. And besides battling monsters, you also have to brave the heart pounding naughty events that the girls involve you in. Harem!

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 destructible as well as surpassable with appropriately angled projectiles and attacks.
NAtURAL DOCtRINE also supports cross-save functionality across all platforms!

A complete reboot and revamp of the much maligned FF:XIV, A Realm Reborn are the efforts from Square Enix to rectify and improve on every single aspect from the former.
Improvements include a much needed implementation of a completely new server system, a new graphical engine, and the most important one of all: a fully renewed user interface. Certain races such as the female Hyur Highlanders, female Roegadyns, and male Miqo'tes are playable; current jobs and new ones (Scholar, Arcanist, and Summoner) have also been reworked. As well, compared the to original's 8 world zones, all field maps have been redesigned in 40 new zones.
With all this new content, FF: XIV indeed looks like a reason to return to Hydaelyn once again!
