Oninaki Release Date Revealed in New #E32019 Trailer
Among the general influx of game trailers and announcement during such a time as E3, Oninaki wasn’t going to miss out on the fun, and along with a narrative focussed trailer came the release date for this colourful action RPG.
Arriving on the 22nd of August for PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch Oninaki follows the story of Kagachi, a ‘watcher’ whose job it is to return lost souls to the afterlife.
“After meeting a mysterious girl named Linne, his fate becomes entwined with blood and death. During the journey, players will also meet key characters like Kushi, an exemplary Watcher and trusted leader, Mayura, a Watcher with a kind heart, and the malicious Night Devil from a forgotten time.”
The gameplay look mostly what you might expect from a Japanese action RPG, though of course that’s no criticism. There are a variety of styles to use to hack and shoot at your enemies, and some rather tasty looking special moves. We wrote an article recently about the different weapons and characters, which you can view here.
The trailer in this instance gives a bit more depth on the context of the watcher and his job of moving souls on to be reincarnated. It’s fairly brief, but I feel a helpful trailer. Especially for a zany sounding concept, it’s always good to have a deep voiced narrator actually tell you what the hell is going on.
You can watch the trailer below, and of course we’ll be sure to cover any new info on the game. This is one I’m personally very much looking forward to – since Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana I’m gasping for another great Japanese action RPG.
