Demonschool Gets a New Trailer Featuring Gross Monsters

A new trailer for tactics RPG Demonschool appeared, mixing gameplay snippets with glimpses of practical-effect monsters to showcase the game’s Italian horror film influence. We also got another look at the games plan-then-execute combat and a peek at some more party members. [Thanks, IGN!]

Developed by Necrosoft (Hyper Gunsport, Oh, Deer!) and published by Ysbryd Games, Demonschool’s turn based combat places an emphasis on movement and positioning. When not fighting for their lives against demons, players must plan their characters’ schedules around the school day in order to develop their stats, abilities, and relationships. The practical effects used in the trailer do not appear to be used in-game, but several encounters seem to blend 2D and 3D graphical styles to contrast the natural and supernatural elements of the world.

Necrosoft stated that another big inspiration for Demonschool was the Persona series, which also contains supernatural elements and high-school relationship building. Persona 5 Tactica, the series’ own foray into turn-based tactics, leaked early on an Atlus Instagram account but has since been formally announced and detailed.

Demonschool currently does not have a release date as of this trailer, but is slated for a  2023 release on the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
