Tactical RPGs is one of those genres that has been struggling to maintain a foothold in Western markets. While the genre is doing quite well overseas, Western games just can’t seem to get into it. It is for that reason that Natural Doctrine seemed like such a risky venture for NIS to bring over to the states. However, with a new console to publish for, and a vast RPG vacuum present over the PS4, it seemed like some of the risk was mitigated. Especially when you consider that Kadokawa games was at the helm, things were looking promising. That is, until you got into the game itself.
