The team behind Unicorn Overlord is made of some of the industry’s finest, with titles like 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim under their belt, and Atlus – the creator of the Persona series and many more fantastic games.

So, what is the game? It expertly combines overworld exploration with an ‘innovative battle system’, where you can make use of 60 different characters ranging from human units to elves and mythical beasts. When you’re not holding your ground on the battlefield, you need to make your name known through the five nations and be the hero they deserve.
