Oninaki Upgrade and Customize Trailer, Demo Now Available on PS4 and Switch

Square Enix have released a new trailer for upcoming Tokyo RPG Factory developed Oninaki – alongside a playable demo for the game on consoles.

The playable demo is available now on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. The demo will allow users to experience the early part of the story and carry over their progress, as well as a battle mode to experience a more challenging combat with an upgraded character.

The above trailer, and information in the demo, explain how different “demons” can possess the main character Kagachi, giving him access to jobs much like a traditional RPG. These jobs can be upgraded via skill trees. Weapons gathered can also be used to upgrade one-another as materials, and accessories can be equipped to weapons to grant them new abilities and effects.

You can find the full run-down below:

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.

Oninaki launches August 22nd for Windows PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.
