Natural Doctrine multiplayer detailed

Cross-play between PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.

Natural Doctrine

The latest update on Natural Doctrine, Kadokawa Games upcoming simulation RPG developed in-house for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita, details the game’s multiplayer component.


In Natural Doctrine, it’s possible to play multiplayer across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita via cross-play. By selecting “Multi-Mode” in the menu screen, you’ll be able to choose between online and ad-hoc play. From there, you can select your mission, set your rank, and begin the battle.

Battle and Cooperate with a Variety of Unit Arrangements

In single player mode, it’s possible to insert a sub-race enemy unit, such as the Grion, in your deck. Allies and enemies advance during their respective turns. In multiplayer, cooperation turns are the key.

PS Vita Ad-Hoc

In ad-hoc mode, you can enjoy carefree battles, and your battle results are not saved. Using the deck you procured in online mode, you can challenge nearby friends to practice battles. Choose your rank, time limit, and mission before beginning the battle. And just like single player mode, there will be victory conditions players must meet to win.


By sharing your save data, you can play on PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3 at home, and on PS Vita when you’re on the go. You can save your single player data to PlayStation Network to access it across any platform.

In order to commemorate this feature, as previously announced, Kadokawa Games will release a Natural Doctrine “Take Out Pack,” which includes the PlayStation 4 version on disc and a download code for the PS Vita version for 7,980 yen.

Natural Doctrine is due out on March 19 in Japan.
