We know a lot of you have been waiting for more information about ONINAKI - the upcoming action RPG from Tokyo RPG Factory. But rather than us telling you about it, why not just try it yourself?

A free demo for the game is now available to download on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam. Take a look at the trailer for a taste of what to expect:

What’s in the demo?

ONINAKI is an epic tale of love, death and reincarnation. You follow Kagachi, a young watcher who has the responsibility of guiding Lost Souls to the next world.

But a meeting with a mysterious girl called Linne sets Kagachi on a different path, and entwines his fate with blood and death.

The demo lets you experience the opening of this epic adventure, and any progress you make can be carried over into the full game when it releases on August 22, 2019. Nothing’s been held back - you get access to the full mechanics and gameplay options that you will in the full release.

The demo also includes a ‘Battle Mode’. This lets you experience exciting combat scenarios, using an upgraded character possessed by four Daemons with different job roles, weapons and abilities. It’s a good way to get a look at how combat evolves beyond the initial stages of the story.

How to preorder ONINAKI

ONINAKI is available to pre-order digitally for Switch, PS4 and Steam. Get it before launch on August 22, and you’ll get a 10% discount!

Not only that, but pre-purchase the game on Switch and you’ll get the Ouka-Setsugetsu sword weapon.
