Publisher NIS America has recently updated the website for the upcoming turn-based JRPG, Monark, which contains a slew of notable information on the game’s combat system, diverse cast of characters, and world. Further, there is a quiz visitors of the website can partake in as a brief, entertaining activity to find out which of the seven sins governs their lives in the most effective ways. On a charming note, completing the quiz also gives participants an idea of the type of Daemons they can wield.
You can view the updated Monark website here.
Monark takes place in Shin Mikado Academy, a school that’s currently suffering the effects of a Mist that makes people go mad. Unfortunately, the institution is also separated from the rest of the world by a barrier, meaning the only way out for the protagonist and his newfound friends is to fight.
The protagonist makes a pact with a Daemonic power and obtains the Authority of Vanity. With it, he’ll be able to strengthen his Ego and fight against the abominations that reside in the academy. Alongside him, there are four companions, and your choices to side more with one of them will lead to different destinies.
It’s up to the player to make allies called fiends, unlocked according to how the player’s Ego evolves through the game. The player can also use incredible powers in battle with the protagonist’s Authority, but mishandling it will cause the MAD gauge to fill. Being overtaken by madness means attacking both allies and enemies as well as self-destructing, making it essential for the player to analyze the risks properly.
Monark is releasing for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on February 22. 2022.
