Release dates and more inside.

It seems like only three years ago I was playing 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim and thinking this was an absolute stonker of a game, and I’d have to wait an age for a new one. It seems like only yesterday I was reminded of the game as a ‘memory’ on various social networks as the dates lined up so perfectly, and I wondered, when will the next Vanillaware title be revealed? Just one day later, a jammed-packed Nintendo Direct, and there it is in all its glory. Unicorn Overlord. Check this trailer out.

It’s one of those trailers, where it doesn’t tell you it’s Vanillaware or Atlus until the very end, and you have this slow build of, yes, this looks good. No, this looks really good. Is this, no, it can’t be Vanillaware? Oh this looks amazing! I like that in trailers. I’m so rarely wowed these days.

We don’t have a huge amount of details yet, but we have a release date and with 6 months to go there’s time for more details to be slowly teased. From the Press Release – From the creators of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim™, and Odin Sphere™, Unicorn Overlord shines in combining overworld exploration and an innovative battle system in the iconic Vanillaware style. Traverse the vibrant world, cultivate a grand army with over 60 uniquely designed characters, and grow your renown throughout the five nations in this unique epic fantasy experience!

There’s also plenty of detail about editions. In addition to a Standard edition, a Collector’s edition of Unicorn Overlord will include the physical Unicorn Overlord game, a Premium Edition Box, 16-bit BGM Soundtrack CD (two discs with ten tracks on each), a 132-page artbook and an original card game featuring 239 cards, tokens and markers. The Collector’s edition will also include the ATLUS X Vanillaware Heraldry Pack, a pre-order DLC, which lets you customize the Liberation Army’s flag with emblem designs from Odin Sphere, Dragon’s Crown and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim.
