Clouded Leopard Entertainment and Shueisha Games have announced a release date for their upcoming 3D action adventure game ONI : Road to be the Mightiest Oni during today's Nintendo Indie World Showcase. The game was previously announced for PC and PlayStation consoles, but now is coming to Nintendo Switch as well. Paired with an incredible soundtrack and beautiful visuals, this game is looking to be a strong indie contender! You play as a demon named Kuta buddying up with his partner Kazemaru as they take revenge against a demon pretending to be a man. For those of you that are wondering what the song was during today's trailer, it is Seiakusetsu by Kanna. Simply astounding music...
According to the Steam page, see below for some key features:
Setting: Kisejima Island The story takes place on Kisejima, a small island in the middle of the ocean. Here, it is said that the power that lies dormant within the local demon spirits can be drawn out by challenging them to trials, where ancient demons who were once defeated by Momotaro are summoned to battle. However, few have ever returned from Kisejima alive.
Characters: Kuuta, a demon warrior, and his spirit partner, Kazemaru Kuuta, the protagonist, is the only survivor of the Demon King's army that faced Momotaro in battle. He and Kazemaru, a mysterious spirit that lives on Kisejima, team up to take on challenges of all shapes and sizes!
Artwork by KENEI DESIGN Kisejima may not be large, but the colorful artwork by KENEI DESIGN, with its dazzling green meadows, looming forests, and plains of floating megaliths, offers a unique emotional impact unlike any other action game. Its solo creator has invented a mini-world in which each and every location is marked by its own memorable appeal. ONI is an invitation for players to enjoy a small-world experience, for a change!
ONI : Road to be the Mightiest Oni is coming to PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 on March 9, 2023. You can wishlist the game now on Steam to support the developers!
