Square Enix and Tokyo RPG Factory have released a new trailer for Oninaki, offering an in-depth look at the Daemon battle system.
Daemons are an integral part to Kagachi’s battle abilities in the upcoming action RPG, with each offering different skills and enhancements – and the chance to switch between them during battles in real-time.
As they become more powerful they will gain enhanced skills, upgrades, and weapon customization as you increase their levels.
In Oninaki, 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 harness the power of Daemons – a special type of Lost Soul who could not be reincarnated. Each Daemon represents a different weapon type, and you can manage their Daemon’s skills – switching between them in real-time to deal devastating blows to your enemies.
Oninaki will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on August 22nd.
