ATLUS and VANILLAWARE reveals story and characters of Unicorn Overlord

13 Sentinels studio VANILLAWARE's next game is titled Unicorn Overlord, and it's releasing in March 2024.

Following the game’s recent reveal, ATLUS and VANILLAWARE shared new details of Unicorn Overlord, including its story and main characters.

In case you missed it, Unicorn Overlord is an upcoming tactical RPG by VANILLAWARE, the studio behind the hit game 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim.

Unlike 13 Sentinels though, Unicorn Overlord has a fantasy setting that’s rendered in a 16-bit-inspired style.

The game’s premise is described as:

“The story takes place in the land of Fevrith, which is home to five nations: the Kingdom of Cornia, Drakenhold, Elheim, Bastorias, and the Holy Kingdom of Albion. The realm is inhabited by a host of different races, including humans, bestrals, elves, and angels.

A rebellion by General Valmore in the Kingdom of Cornia quickly sweeps across the land, engulfing the realm in war. The protagonist, Alain, is a surviving Cornian prince at the helm of the Liberation Army. Seize the legendary Ring of the Unicorn, raise your banners, and liberate your lands.”
