During Square Enix Live E3 2019, the company announced that Oninaki, the latest action-RPG developed by the talented Tokyo RPG Factory team, will debut digitally on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and STEAM on August 22nd.
Oninaki is the third title from Tokyo RPG Factory and the studio’s first foray into the action RPG genre, sustaining the studio’s mission in taking inspiration from classic Japanese role-playing games to create a captivating experience on modern platforms.
Following the release of I Am Setsuna in 2016 and Lost Sphear in 2018, Oninaki encompasses an inspired art direction, deep character development, and a captivating storyline contributing to a unique, yet familiar JRPG experience.
In Oninaki, players will follow the story of Kagachi, a young watcher whose duty is to usher Lost Souls into the next world. After meeting a mysterious girl named Linne, his fate becomes entwined with blood and death. During the journey, players will also meet key characters like Kushi, an exemplary Watcher and trusted leader, Mayura, a Watcher with a kind heart, and the malicious Night Devil from a forgotten time.
Let’s get spiritual with Oninaki
I am so excited about this title. I’ve played I am Setsuna and my pants were charmed off. The battle system was fascinating. Not only that team builds on each title making the next one better than the one that came before. Knowing the level of care that is given to each title from Tokyo RPG Factory gives me a high level of confidence that when August rolls around a lot of people will be singing Oninaki’s praise.
