A new trailer titled “Daemon Trailer” has been released for the upcoming action RPG developed by Tokyo RPG Factory (those behind I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear).

The trailer shows off a bit more gameplay than the previous releases, this time focussing on briefly showing us some of the weapons and abilities you can use during combat.

The weapons, utilised by switching partners in game, include swords, axes, scythes, spears and ‘shotbolts’, which are a mixture of pistol and crossbow.

Each of these appears to have unique abilities and styles. The sword offers a good balance of speed and power, while also enabling you to dash to evade; the axe is obviously a heftier weapon, however you can use its size to block attacks; the spear allows you to charge and leap attack enemies; the scythe provides good range and also enables you to blink behind your target; and finally the shotbolt, while perhaps won’t be as good up close, gives you the ability to spring backwards – firing shots as you go – and offers impressive AOE.

You can check out our previous articles if you want to read more on the story, however in essence the game follows a ‘Watcher’ who is tasked with ‘ushering’ lost souls into the next world.

The game looks great so far, with its colourful style and lively combat. Hopefully come its release this summer we’ll have a charming and exciting action RPG to dig in to.

I started gaming with the release of the PS1 - Crash Bandicoot and Ridge Racer Revolution being the first 'real' games I ever set eyes on - and have been enthralled with the medium ever since. I particularly love strategy and horror games, the sort offered by titles such as Total War and Silent Hill, though I also have a soft spot for a good RPG. I studied Journalism at university in the hopes of progressing into writing about games. You'll most likely find me covering indie games as I'm always on the look out for interesting little titles, and generally I stick to the PC and PS4 platforms. I'm not interested in MMOs or really any kind of online game, and I have an unusual and frankly worryingly expensive obsession with collecting gaming guide books, but aside from that I like to think I'm a well rounded average gamer.
