Vanillaware’s Unicorn Overlord Will Feature Over 100 Characters

Famitsu confirmed during the Atlus Media Briefing at Tokyo Game Show 2023 that the company’s upcoming tactical RPG with Vanillaware, Unicorn Overlord, will feature over 100 characters.

It’s worth emphasizing that this does not mean playable since roughly 60 will be. This just means that throughout the story and likely side content, players can expect to see over 100 unique characters throughout their war adventure. This is truly shaping up to be Vanillaware’s most ambitious game yet, at least in terms of quantity and scale.

In Unicorn Overlord, players must prepare to defy destiny and immerse themselves in a regal odyssey. This RPG promises an unforgettable journey. Brought to life by the creators of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, this game seamlessly blends overworld exploration and a unique battle system, all in the iconic Vanillaware art style.

As a player, you will traverse a vibrant and enchanting world, forging a formidable army of over 60 distinct characters, all while carving out your legacy across five illustrious nations in this grand fantasy adventure. Unleash your kingdom from the shackles of adversity and seize control of your fate in Unicorn Overlord.

The story is set on the continent of Fevrith comprised of five nations, which is put into war by a general from Cornia. The prince, Alain, flees as subjugation occurs, eventually becoming the leader of the Liberation Army a decade later.

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