Unicorn Overlord Battle

Check Out Unicorn Overlord’s Battle System and Some New Characters

More and more details emerge ahead of release

Atlus and Vanillaware have released new content and information on Unicorn Overlord nearly every week since it was announced last year.

The tactical RPG promises a massive roster of characters and a detailed battle system. Today, the teams gave us another in-depth look at both of these critical aspects of the game.


Unicorn Overlord’s Battles

A Battlefield is a real-time encounter in a battle stage as allied units face off against enemies. Within these, there will be several battle conditions that must be met to succeed.

You can also trigger these encounters once you deploy from a nearby location, kicking things into gear as you’ll be thrown into the tactical RPG and turn-based battle system.

Active skills are used with AP (active points). The fight will continue until one side has depleted their AP. But of course, it’s not that simple as there are numerous ways to defeat your opponent and avoid a game over.


Valor Skills are usable, with each class having its strengths and weaknesses in this area. The developers dove deeper into this system not too long ago, and we took a closer look, specifically within the massive list of available classes, as dozens are at your disposal.

Of course, in a tactical RPG, tactics are the key to success. Where you place a character will help determine when and how they attack or defend. Each skill can also be prioritized, so when it is that combatant’s turn, they will play out their attack or defence according to the condition set before them. These tactics are developed before the battle plays out in front of you.

Finally, you can optimize your team. If battles are becoming a little too tough, the built-in Optimize function will help you make some of the more challenging decisions or ones that may not have occurred to you.

More Character Details

The amount of characters and classes in Unicorn Overlord is frankly astounding. In the latest update, several more have been unveiled.

Protagonist’s Allies:

  • Yunifi
  • Ramona
  • Morard
  • Nigel
  • Dinah
  • Sanatio

And a new enemy named Elgor, a high commander a northern Zenoiran Army.


Each of the characters will have a personality, deep backstory, and unique traits that will need to be managed throughout the game. It’s another piece that the teams at ATLUS and Vanillaware have shared recently.

Unicorn Overlord will be available on March 8th for Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series, and PlayStation 5 and 4.
