Bandai Namco has shared the first gameplay video for the recently announced Record of Grancrest War game for PlayStation 4.
Featured above, the new video shows off the player commanding an army to capture an enemy’s castle. Fans of the series can expect the characters Theo Cornaro, Siluca Meletes, Irvin, Aishela, and Priscilla Farnese to be playable.
Here’s a synopsis of the game’s story:
On the continent Atlatan threatened by demons from another dimension called Chaos, the nobility fought back using Crests, which gave them superhuman powers. However, rather than join forces to end Chaos, the nobles instead fought each other to gain more Crest powers and lands. The story focuses on Siluca Meletes, a young mage who scorns the feuding lords for abandoning their people and Theo Cornaro, wandering knight and Crest holder who is trying to liberate his hometown from its tyrant lord. Joining forces, Siluca, Theo and their allies fight together to end the wars between the nobility and end Chaos.
Record of Grancrest War is launching for PlayStation 4 in Japan on June 14th.
