Nintendo announced an upcoming single-player JRPG entitled Oninaki from the acclaimed developer of Lost Sphere and I Am Setsuna, complete with a soft release date of summer 2019.
The game is an action RPG that has the player going back and forth between the living world and “the beyond” to rescue lost souls.
As the player saves lost souls the character will become stronger using the abilities gained to face off against monsters. Each soul will affect the player differently and will be best suited for different situations.
The game takes place in a world that bases their tenants on reincarnation. In this world, people are not allowed to mourn the dead. The main character, Kagachi, is a Watcher, someone who is tasked to go save the souls of the dead and fight the ones that allow grief to affect their souls, turning them into monsters that cannot be reincarnated.
