Nippon Ichi Software has announced "supernatural x school RPG" Xicatrice, set to release for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on June 29 in Japan.

In Xicatrice, you play as a teacher of a class of students who have awakened to their latent supernatural abilities, leading missions in times of emergency. The game boasts more than 300 skills and flexible character development. The title is a play on the word cicatrice, which refers to a scar that is healing.

An announcement trailer, details, and screenshots can be found below, via Nippon Ichi Software. An English localization has not been announced.

Develop Students through daily lessons


As a teacher, the player prepares weekly classes to train a groyp of seven students. Each student will increase their basic skills, such as physical strength and judgment, depending on the lessons given by the player. Each student has his or her own strengths and weaknesses in certain subjects, which will affect how quickly different skills can be developed. In addition to the classrom, you can also improve student skills by meeting with them on the weekend.


Students do not acquire skills by leveling up through combat, and these can also affect events in school life, such as performance on exams. Time in game will move forward after after action, so training should be planned to prepare for upcoming combat events.

Building Skills


Before engaging in combat, skills can be equipped to each character after developing them in class. There is a total limit to the number of skills that can be equipped, so it is important to choose the skills that best suit the opponent you are fighting. There over 300 types of skills, including both active and passive abilities. The maximum number of equippable skills increases as the student develops.

Some skills can detect the enemy's weaknesses and other characteristics to prepare out for before the battle. For difficult opponents, players should carefully consider skill configurations and member compositions.

Command Battles


The seven students work in a group known as the "RAUT" (Reserve Against Unusual Abnormalities Unit) solving cases involving danagerous foes, including monsters created by negative human emotions and superpower-using criminals.

In combat, the player chooses only one action per turn from a selection of actions proposed by the students based on the skills they have equipped. Until you reach the target of the mission, battles will occur continuously with numerous enemies. Manage your character's HP and SP consumption as proceed towards the target.


If a student cannot face and overcome their emotional scars, they may be swallowed by their own power. If you fail to empathize with your students, it can end tragically.

However, if you encoutner a bad ending or achieve a certain condition, you may get a bonus to continue the game more favorably in a second playthrough.
