By Sam Quirke, 4 months ago
Tokyo RPG Factory are known for their atmospheric RPGs I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear, and fans can now get their hands on a free demo for their next project. Oninaki is due out later this summer.

Oninaki appears to be a pretty dark tale of a man who acts as a gatekeeper for the underworld, whose fate becomes intertwined with a young girl and the four daemons that possess him. The game will launch with a Story Mode and a Battle Mode, and luckily players' progress in today's free demo will carry over into the full game. If the demo is enticing enough to make you think about pre-ordering, Square Enix are sweetening the pot by offering the Emrys Spear Weapon and a PS4 Dynamic Theme for your trouble. There's a limited physical edition of Oninaki available on the Square Enix store, and the digital version has just gone up for pre-order on the PlayStation store as well.


The new Action-RPG, ONINAKI tells the story of one Watcher on a journey to protect Life, after Death.
