In fact, they went a step above and stated that the anticipated title will launch on August 22nd, and will do so on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam.
Oninaki is the third title from Tokyo RPG Factory and the studio’s first foray into the action RPG genre, sustaining the studio’s mission in taking inspiration from classic Japanese role-playing games to create a captivating experience on modern platforms. Following the release of I Am Setsuna™ in 2016 and LOST SPHEAR™ in 2018, ONINAKI encompasses an inspired art direction, deep character development and a captivating storyline contributing to a unique, yet familiar JRPG experience.

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.
