Sony recently announced that they’ll be bringing Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines to North America and Europe. While we’ve previously covered details on how you’ll be passing along your genes to your family, job classes, and more, this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine shares some more details on those features. (Thanks, Hokanko-alt.)
In Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, there will be eight basic job classes. While details are still light on the final two to be revealed, one will be a long-ranged soldier that uses cannons to fight, and the other will excel at close-ranged combat with high evasion.
The goddess Nueko, who sacrificed her own life in order to bring back the family to life after they were killed by the ventriloquist villain, Abeno, will be joining your party later in the game. According to the latest report, she’ll be a unique summoner-type class who can summon spirits to help her and the rest of the party in battle.
Oreshika is set in an entire nation, and you’ll begin with a faction of a family that has been spread across the country. Since the family is cursed, they can only pass on their genes to their offspring through a ritual with gods.
However, it seems like there will be an exception to it, as you’ll also be able to visit other lands and have kids with those from other tribes. In addition to traveling to other lands through an “expedition” feature, you’ll also be able to adopt children from other tribes, and you can also hire temporary soldiers.
We previously reported details on how you’ll be expanding your family tree in Oreshika, through various gods and deities. According to the Famitsu report, there will also be certain gods that have been captured or sealed by enemies, and upon liberating them, you’ll also unlock them as possible candidates for the ritual for passing along your genes to an offspring.
A demo will be available on April 24, that will allow players to get a basic feel for the game, as it will give you about a year’s worth of in-game time to try it out.
Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines will be released on July 17, 2014 for PlayStation Vita in Japan, and it’ll also be coming to the west.
