Monark is the latest Furyu RPG being put together by people who worked on Shin Megami Tensei games. Rather than a turn-based RPG, like SMT, it gets more strategic. To help people better understand how it works, there’s a new video. In the latest Monark gameplay trailer, NIS America explains its battle system.

Each playable character in the field will be paired and fight alongside their Fiend. These are Daemons tied to Ego. (Which correspond to the seven deadly sins like greed and pride.) Up to six people can be on the field at a time. In this strategic RPG fight, you’ll position your allies and their Fiends to attack. There is also a MAD Gauge. This fills as you fight.

When Madness kicks in, you’ll enter a berserk state. This makes you stronger than normal. However, you will attack anyone on the field. When it ends, the character who went MAD will “self destruct.”

Here’s the new Monark combat gameplay video. In addition to showing off how fights will work, people can hear the harusaruhi theme song “Pleiades.”

Monark will appear on the PS4, PS5, Switch, and PC on February 22, 2022.
