Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines Connects Characters, Lands, And Players

With Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines’ release right around the corner in Japan, Sony Computer Entertainment put together this trailer to show off the game flow and how things work.



The video begins with an explanation on how your family’s base location will start out at a random location, and so will the dungeons around it, along with the things you can acquire.


You can also go on expeditions to neighboring lands, all with their own towns and dungeons. In addition to having different kinds of equipment available in different towns, you can also encounter new gods there, who’ll help expand your family and their traits.



While you can pass on your spirit to offspring through the power of deities, another option is through marrying other characters you meet in different lands. The children born this way might have other unique abilities, rather than going with the gods.


Characters from other lands can also be adopted and brought home, or they can also be hired as mercenaries to help out on your next adventure. So working with other lands and their towns might be the key to the survival of your cursed bloodline.



Visiting other players and their lands can be beneficial for both parties. In addition to being able to find different items and meeting various people, players can get extra money and more by having others do a little shopping or visiting their land.



Characters and special equipment can also be shared via QR codes on social media networking sites to share with friends and family, which will have some kind of influence on your game data, and another reason to interact with others.


Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines will be released in Japan on July 17, 2014 for PlayStation Vita and later on in the West. Meanwhile, you can also check out the game’s opening video.

    I can’t wait for this to get localized. It has such a “good ole days” RPG feel to it. Like it could have been made during the PS2 era. And yes I know about the original. Wonderful game!

    • This, 1000%. ♥

    • Ryker

      Yeah, this is what I’m talking about! I love the art style so much, and the scenery looks so vibrant and colorful. Great character designs, as well. Can’t wait to play this.

    I wish they would give this game a release date already…….. This has got to be amongst the highest of my wanting to play games coming out thus far.

  • Hunnybear

    this has the potential to be my second game in vita after P4G. Way more hyped about this than Freedom Wars.

  • Warboss Aohd

    still waiting on the release date for us, although this new information sounds pretty good.

  • KuroNathan

    Whale summon!

  • Kornelious

    I hope Sony gives this game a physical release….Though seeing how Soul Sacrifice Delta and Freedom Wars in Europe are Digital-Only…..I’m worried :(

    • Duo Maxwell

      But Freedom Wars has physical release in NA, which is strange. Usually it’s the other way around.

    • God

      My memory card is ready.

  • Armageddon

    I like how the art looks. Very classic japanese like Okami.

  • Ric Vazquez

    I really hope this is not going to be digital-only.

  • MaximDualBlade

    Physical localization. Don’t give up!
