If you’re unfamiliar with the game, here’s an official reminder from Square Enix itself:
“ONINAKI is the third title from Tokyo RPG Factory and the studio’s first foray into the action RPG genre, sustaining the studio’s mission in taking inspiration from classic Japanese role-playing games to create a captivating experience on modern platforms. Following the release of I Am Setsuna™ in 2016 and LOST SPHEAR™ in 2018, ONINAKI encompasses an inspired art direction, deep character development and a captivating storyline contributing to a unique, yet familiar JRPG experience.
In ONINAKI, players will follow the story of Kagachi, a young watcher whose duty is to usher Lost Souls into the next world. After meeting a mysterious girl named Linne, his fate becomes entwined with blood and death. During the journey, players will also meet key characters like Kushi, an exemplary Watcher and trusted leader, Mayura, a Watcher with a kind heart, and the malicious Night Devil from a forgotten time.”
