Level 5 are working on an online multiplayer RPG for iOS and Android devices, titled Majin Station. In the game, you have the ability to summon demons and the goal is to occupy Japan’s nationwide stations by moving the Phantom Train that appears when one plays the Yin-Yang whistle.



The game will feature appearances from Japanese historical figures such as Nobunaga Oda, Musashi Miyamoto and more, who await the player at these stations. You can turn them into majins who will join you in your quest.


Majin Station is being developed by Jiro Ishii (Time Travelers) and Jin Kimura. Artwork for the game is being provided by Yusuke Kozaki, who you might recognize for the character designs of Fire Emblem: Awakening.
