Square Enix-Developed ‘The DioField Chronicle’ Japan Collector’s Edition Revealed; Board Game & Pins Included

Square Enix Japan has unveiled the Collector’s Edition for their upcoming tactics RPG, The DioField Chronicle. Our team’s Ryuji has translated the primary points of this forthcoming package:

The DioField Chronicle Collector’s Edition will officially be open for pre-orders on July 7!

One of the inclusions of this collector’s box is the DioField Chronicle Board Game. With this, you’ll be able to enjoy the entire world and story of DioField Chronicle via a board game! (…How exactly is unknown yet. This might be updated on the store description.)

Furthermore, the collector’s edition also includes a set of pins with four different crest designs, including the mercenary Blue Fox, which will be included alongside the board game.

The URL for purchase will be posted on the official Twitter account the day pre-orders begin. It seems the board game will be something exclusive to the Square Enix e-Store. They also hammer in 数量限定, which means Limited Quantity.

There is currently no word on whether the West will be receiving this special edition. In fact, the West doesn’t have a confirmed release date for the game either, with Japan’s launch date being September 2022. A Japanese demo is also arriving next month.

We’ll be sure to keep you all updated on this incoming title’s release.

The DioField Chronicle features a tactical RPG system with a diverse cast. Further, the developer shared that the soundtrack and story are a significant focus in this new adventure, with a Real-Time Tactical Battle system. 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 in the West later this year.
