First Queen is a 1988 PC-9801 RPG that combines traditional turn-based RPG gameplay with large-scale strategic battles. This game, the first in Kure Software's First Queen series, introduced the Gochyakyara ("Multiple Characters") system that allowed many AI companions to fight alongside the player character. It features a tactical pausable real-time combat system with real-time strategy elements.
The game originated on Japanese computers and would eventually see updated releases for the Super Famicom in 1994 (as First Queen: Ornic Senki) and a Windows PC graphically-enhanced remake in 2001. The game is also known for its involvement with artist Yoshitaka Amano, who would be better known for his work with Square's Final Fantasy.
