Square Enix Ltd has revealed more details about the characters in Oninaki, a new action-RPG from I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear developer Tokyo RPG Factory.
You will have the chance to explore the world as a mysterious Watcher called Kagachi, duty-bound to sever the bonds that tie the Lost Souls to the Living World. Only with his guidance can these wandering souls return to the Beyond – the realm of the dead – so that they can continue the cyclical process of reincarnation over again.
After he meets Linne, a mysterious young girl with no memory of her past, his fate becomes entwined with blood and death. While on his journey, you will also meet Kushi, an exemplary Watcher and trusted leader, Mayura, a Watcher with a kind heart, and the malicious Night Devil – a swordsman from a forgotten time who is hunting Linne.
In battle, you must “manifest” the souls of Daemons, which act as the classes that are usually found in traditional role-playing games. Each has its own unique weapons and skills, and you can shift between them in real-time to help gain the upper hand in battle.
Oninaki will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2019.
