New Unicorn Overlord Trailer Details Real-Life Card Game Included in Collector’s Edition

Atlus and Vanillaware have unveiled a new trailer for their upcoming tactical JRPG Unicorn Overlord, detailing the real-life card game included with the title’s Collector’s Edition. This card game contains 239 cards, with four Might markers, four Choice markers, and one player marker. Playtime is expected to be between 30 and 120 minutes, with a required number of two to four players.

The game lasts five rounds where players try to gain the most Might, with the player having the most Might at the end of a turn gaining Renown. Then, the winner is determined by whoever possesses the most Renown after the five rounds. Players will have seven piles of cards when starting, with the starter cards needing to be set aside. Each pile must be shuffled individually.

The video is pretty in-depth, detailing card placements and relationships, functionalities, and specially-made images illustrating the rules.

Unicorn Overlord is an ambitious new release by Vanillaware, known for many smash-hits, like 13 Sentinels: Aegis RimOdin Sphere, and Muramasa The Demon Blade. And in an unexpected turn from the developer, this will be a tactical adventure.

The story is set on the continent of Fevrith, comprised of five nations that face war due to a general from Cornia. The prince, Alain, flees as subjugation occurs, eventually becoming the leader of the Liberation Army a decade later. Alongside a vast cast of over 60 characters, the gameplay mechanics are extensive. Players can anticipate various quest types, which each impact the world in several ways, social activities to get to know the playable characters more intimately, town liberation and rebuilding, and even an online PvP mode to test your strategical mettle.

Unicorn Overlord will launch for PlayStation 4 (digital-only), PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on March 8, 2024.
