During Square Enix’s E3 2019 Press Conference, the publisher revealed that the Tokyo RPG Factory developed Oninaki is releasing on August 22 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC-via Steam.
There was also a new trailer released as well. The trailer showed the game’s diverse cast of characters, including the main character, Kagachi, in-game dialogue, the real-time action-RPG combat system, and much more.
In the game, players will take on the role of Kagachi who must complete his job as a watcher and usher Lost Souls to the next world. This will require him to bond with and harness the power of Daemons, a special type of Lost Soul who could not be reincarnated. Daemons are powerful and will be needed to assist Kagachi in battle. Each Daemon represents a different weapon type with its own unique skills that can be switched between in real-time to deal devastating blows to enemies.
Oninaki is developed by the same team who worked on I Am Setsuna, a turn-based RPG that mimics classic genre entries. However, the team’s upcoming title will focus on a more action-centric battle system.
