Square Enix must have something in the water at the office, as just after publishing the incredible Triangle Strategy (read more in our Triangle Strategy review), Square has also announced a brand new IP with The Diofield Chronicle. An RPG with a focus on a deep yet innovative real-time battle system, this title looks like Square’s take on Fire Emblem, which is music to our ears.

Speaking of music, the title also features an orchestrated soundtrack, composed by Ramin Djawadi, best known for their work on Game of Thrones, Westworld, Pacific Rim, and more. The Diofield Chronicle release date is set for September 20, and it’s coming to Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One, and Steam.
