Oninaki, the upcoming JRPG from Tokyo RPG Factory and Square Enix, is getting a free demo on the Switch. It’s already released in some regions of the world, including Japan and Europe, and should arrive here tomorrow (July 23). The game has a release date of August 22. The demo’s story mode will allow you carry over save data to the final game! Below is the Japanese trailer for the game:
The Oninaki demo includes a “Story Mode” that lets you experience the opening part of an epic tale about life, death and reincarnation, and “Battle Mode” where you can enjoy thrilling combat using an upgraded character possessed by four daemons that perform different job roles. You can also carry your progress from Story Mode over to the full game.
In Oninaki, you become the Watcher Kagachi, travelling between the world of the living and beyond the veil to the world of the dead, to save the souls of the Lost. You will experience a tumultuous tale of life and death, bound to the precepts of reincarnation.
In executing his duties as a watcher and fighting the Fallen, Kagachi is possessed by the spirits of daemons, each fulfilling the kinds of “job” roles you would see in a traditional RPG.
Oninaki features exciting hack and slash style battles, with deep customization of your daemons and weapons. Experience unique action gameplay combined with a deep and satisfying story.
