Today during the Square Enix Live E3 presentation, Square Enix and Tokyo RPG Factory announced that the action-RPG Oninaki will be released on August 22 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. This is Tokyo RPG Factory’s third game and features a departure of turn-based mechanics into action-based ones.
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.
