Xicatrice Gets Debut Trailer
Nippon Ichi Software released its first offical Japanese trailer for Xicatrice. The video shows the game’s characters, the hostile enemies known as Doppels, and some of its gameplay elements.
Xicatrice puts players in control of a teacher placed in charge of a class of students in the Reserve Anti-Abnormal Unusual Talent Team (RAUT), a team of students who have awakened to superpowers and who can be mobilised to assist in law enforcement if needed. Part of the game sees players schedule weekly lessons for their students to prepare them for battle, while the game’s combat system is similar to that of the Criminal Girls series, with players selecting one action per turn from a list of proposed actions from the party. Xicatrice is planned to release in Japan on June 28, 2023, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch. No announcement has been made regarding a western release.
