If like me you are interested in learning more about the upcoming Oninaki game recently unveiled. Lowey Ding Associate Product Marketing Manager at developer and publisher Square Enix. Has taken to the PlayStation blog this week to reveal more details about the upcoming JRPG from Takashi Tokita and Atsushi Hashimoto. The studio behind I am Setsuna and Lost Sphear is back with another RPG but with a completely new spin. “ Oninaki pivots the traditional turn-based RPG like its two predecessors from Tokyo RPG Factory and packs a punch as an action-adventure RPG giving the user exciting and faster paced gameplay.”
Watch the quick teaser trailer below for a glimpse at what you can expect from the new RPG. Ding explains “At the helm, we have third-time director Atsushi Hashimoto providing us an inside look into the Living World, The Beyond, and its beloved characters. We also have creative producer, Takashi Tokita, whom many know the name from the cult-classic RPG, Chrono Trigger, joining our conversation.”
“Kagachi is the protagonist of this title, and he’s a man of few words who is very cool and collected. From our perspective, you may think he’s aloof and dispassionate. However, according to the lore of this universe, the people are taught not to feel sad even when facing the death of a loved one. They believe that if they feel sad, that sorrow will keep the deceased captive and they won’t be able to reincarnate and their beliefs consider strong emotions to be a bad thing. As such, people like Kagachi are not necessarily a rare case.
