Monark Shares Western Launch Trailer; Madness Is All-Consuming

You can view the launch trailer for Monark below:

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.
