LOS ANGELES (Feb. 13, 2019) – SQUARE ENIX® today announced that an all-new action-RPG developed by the talented Tokyo RPG Factory™ team, titled ONINAKI ™, will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch™ system, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and STEAM® this summer.

 

Tokyo RPG Factory’s third title, ONINAKI, continues the studio’s mission to take inspiration from classic Japanese role-playing games to create a brand-new experience on modern platforms following the releases of the critically acclaimed I Am Setsuna ™ and LOST SPHEAR ™.

 

With exciting new action-RPG gameplay, players will explore the world as a mysterious Watcher named Kagachi who is bound by duty to sever the bonds that tie the Lost to this world. With Kagachi’s guidance, these wandering souls in the world of the Beyond can continue the cyclical process of reincarnation over again.
