We do like a good tactics RPG experience here at DDNet. Publisher 1C Entertainment and developer 40 Giants Entertainment look set to provide that with Reverie Knights Tactics, which will launch this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
The developer is promising a “fantasy world featuring deep map and scenario exploration in an epic adventure, visual novel style” with hand-drawn art, a decision-driven storyline, plenty of exploration and, of course, taut tactics action.
As you can see in the trailer below, there’s a nice aesthetic to this one, with some colourful portraits and a bright, cartoony tactics environment. Of course this genre is incredibly difficult to get right in terms of balancing, pacing and tone, but we’re certainly going to keep an eye out for more on it!
