This week’s Famitsu review scores are of particular note for a simple reason: it was announced today that NIS America will be localizing Natural Doctrine for a North American release set for launch later this year. The game will see the light of day on all three Sony consoles (PS4, PS3 and PS Vita) and will be sure to entice players who love strategy RPGs such as Final Fantasy Tactics, Advance Wars and even last gen’s SRPG masterpiece, Valkyria Chronicles. Thus, seeing the game score fairly decent reviews from our Japanese gaming counterparts spells good news for those clamoring to get their paws on the title right now, through importing, or this coming Fall in the West.
But it’s not just all about Natural Doctrine, the famed Super Robot Taisen series is seeing high praise and marks yet again, meaning that the series which refuses to grace Western gamers continues to look all the more appealing. Still, scope all the reviews below for the complete rundown.
