Tactical JRPG ‘Monark’ Reveals 2nd Anniversary Art

The official website for the Lancarse-developed turn-based JRPG, Monark, has shared new artwork celebrating the game’s second anniversary. Additionally, producer Fuyuki Hayashi shared a message to fans, thanking everyone for their continued support.

Last year, a first-anniversary illustration was shared alongside the news that the title sold over 100,000 units worldwide.

If you missed it, check out our review of the game.

Monark takes place in Shin Mikado Academy, where the player character has just awoken. The academy lies beyond a barrier separate from the real world and is plagued by a Mist that can mentally overwhelm humans. Luckily, Daemonic powers reside in this world that can allow humans to survive, and you’ve just acquired the Authority of Vanity. From here, the player character and four others create the True Studen Council and fight against the darkness.

The gameplay features a balancing act between Authority and Madness, where using Authority will raise your MAD Gauge. When at max, you will attack enemies and allies. Further, players will utilize six characters with a free-movement battle system. The academy grounds can be explored to connect to the Otherworld, which leads to solving mysteries.

Monark is now available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
