Square Enix announced a new action RPG for Switch called Oninaki during today’s Direct presentation. The game is being developed by Tokyo RPG Factory, makers of I am Setsuna and Lost Sphear.
Update: The game is also headed to PlayStation 4 and PC.
Players assume the role of a Watcher named Kagachi, doing battle by “manifesting” the souls of Daemons, which act as the classes found in traditional roleplaying games. Each Daemon has its own unique weapons and skills, and players can shift between them in real time to gain the upper hand in battle.
Moving between the Living World and the realm of the dead known as the Beyond, Kagachi must save the souls of the Lost, as the story of life and reincarnation in this wondrous kingdom unfolds.
Oninaki releases for Nintendo Switch in Summer 2019.
