Atlus and Vanillaware Possibly Considering Unicorn Overlord Sequel

Sega Polling Fans for Interest in Unicorn Overlord Sequel

Vanillaware, the studio behind the widely successful tactical RPG Unicorn Overlord, may be hinting at a potential sequel as publisher Atlus is reaching out to fans to gauge interest in a follow-up game.

According to a report from Siliconera, Atlus is currently conducting a survey targeting fans of Unicorn Overlord, primarily in Asian regions. However, the survey does provide an option for players from non-Asian regions to participate as well.

The survey covers a range of topics, including the version of Unicorn Overlord played by respondents, the platform they experienced it on, and their familiarity with other Vanillaware titles such as Dragon’s Crown or Valkyria Chronicles. One of the key questions in the survey is regarding the likelihood of players purchasing a potential sequel.

While Atlus published the RPG in Japan and Sega handled the international release, it’s important to note that neither company owns Vanillaware. This survey does not guarantee a sequel, but it does indicate a level of interest and openness to the idea from the studio. Given the positive reception and strong launch of the game, a sequel seems plausible.

Prior to Unicorn Overlord, Vanillaware made a name for itself with titles like Odin Sphere in 2007 and Dragon’s Crown in 2013. While Dragon’s Crown drew from arcade beat ’em ups, Unicorn Overlord takes on a 90s-style tactical JRPG approach. The game still features elements from previous Vanillaware titles, including the side-scrolling RTS game 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim.
