The announcement trailer for Square Enix and Tokyo RPG Factory’s Oninaki featured a fascinating story and intense action, all within a breathtaking world. Oninaki’s latest trailer puts the focus on the Daemons you’ll take into battle. Let’s meet them!
Back in February, Square Enix and Tokyo RPG Factory announced a new title called Oninaki. Their announcement came in the form of an intriguing trailer that previewed the story, action, and gorgeous landscapes. Also featured in that initial trailer were beings known as Daemons, who are lost souls brought into battle to imbue powerful abilities to the hero of this story.
The latest Oninaki trailer puts the focus on these Daemons, introducing their name, look, and abilities. Check it out…
The Daemons, their weapons, and their abilities featured in this trailer are as follows:
- Aisha – Sword – Can evade and uses balanced speed and attack
- Wil – Axe – Has the ability to Block and has a powerful, yet slow attack
- Zaav – Spears – Uses devastating leap attacks
- Izana – Scythes – Deals powerful range attacks and is able to teleport behind an enemy
- Dia – Shotbolts – Attacks from afar and creates massive area of effect damage
Each encounter will feature enemies that stronger and weaker against certain weaponry, so switching Daemons will be vital to your success. Fortunately, as the trailer suggests, switching Daemons in battle is easy and seamless.
Oninaki launches Summer 2019 (Rumor is August 22, 2019) on Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam.
As a reminder, see below for the premise behind Oninaki:
Reincarnation is the foundation of our way of life. We celebrate the lives we’ve been given, and offer up prayers for the next. It is grief of death which shackles the living, and causes the dead to stray. Indeed, there is no greater affront to reincarnation. So do we turn our grief to joy as we send off the dead. But the souls of those who held back their tears in life still need salvation in death. A duty that falls to the Watchers. Their task is to guide the wandering souls known as the Lost, and serve as keepers of the Living World and the Beyond. The Watchers sever the bonds that tie the Lost to this world, and send them on to the next. They navigate the emotions of the living and the dead. They prize life above all else. This is the story of one Watcher.
