Unicorn Overlord — Josef’s Guide to Training!

In Unicorn Overlord, players will be able to decide on their strategies in extreme depth. This involves choosing an effective leader, deciding on specific troop formations, and maximising class synergy. Mechanical benefits will vary drastically with each of these choices, with promoted units having improved stats, new abilities, and stylish visual upgrades compared to their base classes. Beyond that, Auxiliary Stages outside the main campaign provide infinitely replayable arenas for players to test strategies to their hearts’ content.

Unicorn Overlord brings players to the fantasy continent of Fevrith, which comprises five great nations, and puts them in the shoes of Alain, prince of Cornia. Forced to flee his home amid a brutal coup leading to the rise of empire, the prince seeks to lead an uprising against those who wronged him and his country. In this pursuit, he will seek allies across the nations of the world, drawing many under a banner of rebellion known as the Liberation Army.

If you’re curious about what RPGFan thinks of Unicorn Overlord, our resident streamer Scott Clay recently went hands-on with its opening hours. He came away from the experience extremely positive, contextualising in depth what players might expect from the title upon release.

Unicorn Overlord will launch worldwide on March 8th for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.
