Natural Doctrine is a 2014 tactical role-playing game game by Kadokawa Games for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.


The game takes place within a universe where humans enter combat with other races using magic and swords. Within a world of turmoil and discord, humans built the fortress city of Feste as their residence, and battled against other species. The protagonist, Jeff, is a guard soldier who ventured to clear goblin dens to allow access to resources important for humankind.


The game is a fantasy simulation-type RPG based along the concept of natural selection. The game features single and multiplayer modes with versus and co-operative play, and is cross-play and cross-save compatible.

The game storyline is shown from the perspective of Jeff, the main protagonist, who is accompanied by two women named Vasilisa and Anca. Combat will be based on a turn-based battle system, and a primary concept of gameplay is to have large numbers of allies and enemies simultaneously on a large size battlefield. Time can be controlled dynamically, and units can be controlled in a single space. Units in combat against one another form encampments, where units are able to return to camp at the end of the turn as long as the encampment isn't destroyed. Units are also able to hide behind objects.

Outside of Feste, species such as minotaurs, goblins and orcs set up bases, and intend on attacking from them. The field is wide and arranged within grid limits. In multiplayer mode, players can play as non-human species.

The online mode will feature a card battle game, where players can compete against one another with their own formulated decks.[1]
