Digital Furnace Games has announced that it will be launching its 2D side-scrolling beat-’em-up Onikira: Demon Killer for PC across Steam and other digital stores on July 30th. It will be sold for $13.99.

 

Onikira has been on Steam Early Access since November 2014 and Digital Furnace says it has reached a point with the current players that they’re satisfied that the game is the best it can be.

It takes place in a fantasy feudal Japan and has you playing as Yamazaki Jiro, a lone samurai battling to prevent the forces of the Japanese underworld, Yomi, from taking over the world of the living.

 

“Some will prefer to go toe-to toe with heavy weapons and mash some buttons while other players will prefer a ranged game, avoiding heavy melee encounters and the game’s expressive fighting system enables each player to engage in the way that suits them best,” says Digital Furnace.

Onikira has seven areas to fight your way through the hordes of demons (including two mini-bosses and two “epic mega bosses”) with over 40 moves and using four different weapons. You can find out more about Onikira: Demon Killer by reading Siliconera’s interview with the creators.
