Square Enix has shared a brief character profile for their upcoming tactical JRPG, The DioField Chronicle, introducing Fredret Lester. He is one of the four Blue Fox leaders, alongside his childhood friend Andrias Rhondarson. However, unlike Andrias, who is deceitful and collected, Fredret is the polar opposite; kind-hearted and naive. Interestingly, his build and combative prowess would make him an ideal infantryman, though he instead elects to battle via horseback.
As a member of the Cavalier Class, Fredret utilizes a skill called Full Frontal Assault, which chases down distant or fleeing foes. Considering its application, this ability likely boasts exceptional range and will be the primary vehicle for maximizing Fredret’s innate reach. Moreover, based on his lines in the game’s most recent trailer, Fredret seems exceptionally righteous with a firm understanding of what he perceives as justice. He also gives off a rambunctious vibe, though that’s just me speculating.

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, 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.
