Makai Kingdom: Chronicles of the Sacred Tome (known in Japan as Phantom Kingdom) is a Turn-Based Strategy RPG from your friends and mine at Nippon Ichi Software. This is the story of Zetta, the Badass Freakin' OverlordTM of the Netherworld, who accidentally blows everything up and sets out to conquer it all over again in hopes of getting his body back.
The game plays a lot like Disgaea and Phantom Brave, in that you move around a grid and have to kill all of the enemies to win. There is one major difference between those two games, though. While Zetta is the main character of the story, he won't be able to participate directly in the battles. In fact, none of the unique characters that appear here are playable until the first playthrough is completed, so the army we use to take over will be completely our own.
