Square Enix has shared a brief character profile for their upcoming tactical JRPG, The DioField Chronicle, introducing Andrias Rhondarson. He is one of the Blue Fox mercenary band leaders, being resourceful and collected. Further, he is talented at subterfuge, meaning embracing deceit for victory isn’t beyond his morals.
Several agents are also under Andrias’ command, so he is assuredly a force to be reckoned with, even when contending against the warring Alliance and Empire. Lastly, as a member of the Soldier Class, Andrias boasts an Assassination skill in battle, likely decimating a singular or enclosed group of foes with minimal range.

The DioField Chronicle features a tactical RPG system with a new cast of characters. Further, the developer shared that the soundtrack and story are a significant focus in this new adventure. The gameplay will introduce a new Real-Time Tactical Battle system that players can master. This world blends fantasy, medieval, and modern-day facets with players witnessing the Kingdom of Alletain, led by the Shaytham dynasty on DioField Island, facing conflict for the first time in 200 years.
The reason for this rise in conflict primarily lies in the presence of the mineral Jade, which is used for magic and sorcery creation, and the island abundantly houses it. The warring Alliance and Empire in the neighboring region are seeking Jade for obvious ends. Players will control Blue Fox, a band of elite mercenaries.
This title is being developed by Lancarse Ltd, a team of veteran strategy developers. Concept art is designed by Isamu Kamikokuryo, who has provided artwork for Final Fantasy XII and Final Fantasy XIII. Additionally, the composers are Ramin Djawadi and Brandon Campbell, primarily known for their work on Game of Thrones.
The DioField Chronicle is releasing for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on September 22, 2022, worldwide. A free demo is also arriving on August 10, 2022.
