LOS ANGELES (May 21, 2019) – SQUARE ENIX® today introduced a variety of Daemons that will assist the player in battle in ONINAKI ™, the upcoming all-new action-RPG developed by the talented Tokyo RPG Factory™ team.

 

As players journey as Kagachi, a young Watcher who ushers Lost Souls into the next world, they will bond with and harness the power of Daemons, a special type of Lost Soul who could not be reincarnated. These powerful souls will assist the player in battle, with each Daemon representing a different weapon type. Players will be able to manage their Daemon’s skills and switch between them in real-time to deal devastating blows to their enemies with unique attacks and power up skills.
