Square Enix showed off a new trailer for Oninaki during their 2019 E3 press conference.
The trailer showed off gameplay, with more focus on the story and some of the various weapons you can use. The colors and visuals in Oninaki are beautifull, which isn’t surprising for Tokyo RPG Factory, the studio behind the game. Tokyo RPG Factory is known for its work on I am Setsuna and Lost Sphear.
The game features a hero, who has to travel between the realms of life and death to save lost souls. Along the way, the souls he saves will aid him in his journey. Different souls will give him different abilities, meaning you’ll want to keep a full arsenal on him in order to beat a variety of challenges.
The game was originally revealed during a Nintendo Direct that showed off multiple indie games releasing for the Nintendo Switch.
Oninaki will release on Aug. 22 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.
