During their Direct presentation, Nintendo has announced that an RPG called Oninaki will be coming to the Switch in the summer of 2019.
Oninaki comes from Tokyo RPG Factory, the same developers who worked on I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear, which are two beloved RPG’s that also came to the Nintendo Switch.
Here’s the story synopsis of the game, straight from Square Enix themselves:
“Reincarnation is the foundation of our way of life. We celebrate the lives we’ve been given, and offer up prayers for the next. It is the grief of death which shackles the living and causes the dead to stray. Indeed, there is no greater affront to reincarnation. So do we turn our grief to joy as we send off the dead.
But the souls of those who held back their tears in life still need salvation in death. A duty that falls to the Watchers. Their task is to guide the wandering souls known as the Lost and serve as keepers of the Living World and the Beyond.
The Watchers sever the bonds that tie the Lost to this world and send them on to the next. They navigate the emotions of the living and the dead. They prize life above all else.
This is the story of one Watcher.”
Oninaki is set to launch this summer for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
