Netmarble, developer of Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds and Marvel Future Revolution, has announced the Grand Cross W beta coming on August 19, giving you a chance to give this new 4X strategy simulation game a go for yourself. With various game modes and multiple strategic elements, it’ll be interesting to see if it can pull off the sort of depth it’s promising.

A self-described next-generation strategy game, it looks like a strange mixture of the tower defence and city building of Clash of Clans, alongside more strategic aspects taken from full-fat PC strategy titles. We’ll have to wait until the Grand Cross W beta and release date to actually see for ourselves.

The game promises “large-scale, real-time, immersive siege wars across land and air.” There are single-player modes, as well as multiplayer elements. You have to lead multiple troop types such as infantry, archers, cavalry, and combat engineers in battles that have erupted across the world of Skyna from the invading armies of Chaos. Sounds pretty serious.
