Danganronpa creator’s “extreme baseball RPG” TRIBE NINE revealed


Co-developers Akatsuki Games and Too Kyo Games have revealed TRIBE NINE, the new “extreme baseball RPG” from Danganronpa creator Kazutaka Kodaka.

TRIBE NINE is in development for Windows PC (via Steam) and both iOS (via the App Store) and Android (via Google Play). A release date wasn’t announced.

A PC beta test is available via the game’s official site. A free-to-play release is planned across all three platforms worldwide, and the game will support English, Japanese, and Chinese languages.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus the first trailer:

It’s the year 20XX. The story takes place in Neo Tokyo, a futuristic country ruled by deadly games. Groups of teens fight in brutal life-or-death battles to reclaim their stolen dreams and freedom.

Players control characters as they venture through the vibrant “City” of Neo Tokyo, taking down formidable enemies to liberate the city. The party consists of three characters who all fight on the battlefield simultaneously. Ally units will respond to the battle accordingly, luring enemies and healing allies. When the time is right, you can even unleash a combo attack by all three party members.

Each character possesses a unique personality, with various battle strategies and methods that change based on the combination of your party members.

In TRIBE NINE, players progress through the story by controlling characters and exploring Neo Tokyo, encountering battles and various other events on the city streets. Along the way, tasks come in one after another, such as acquiring items from streets and treasure chests, completing puzzles and other mini-games, and fulfilling requests from the town’s residents.

Each playable character has their unique characteristics, which is reflected in their skills and actions, so you can experience various playstyles depending on the character.

In addition to leveling up your characters, you also have the freedom to select which stats to boost and what equipment to use. You could even try building a healer as an attacker! There are plenty of possibilities, so you can experiment with creating your own original build!

New main stories and cities will be added to TRIBE NINE through updates. Look forward to the ever-unfolding adventure of TRIBE NINE for free! (in-game purchases available)
