Platinum Games and DeNA have announced a new game called World of Demons, which is a samurai action game. The game is in development for iOS and Android devices, with a release window set for this summer. Those interested can pre-register to get in on the action as soon as possible. An announcement trailer was also released for the game, which you can watch at the bottom of this post.
World of Demons is set in a fantasy interpretation of medieval Japan that has been overrun by demons. Of course, it’s up to the samurai to take them down and protect the humans. Players will be able to control multiple samurai and take part in intense combat, as you’ll be able to slash, dodge, parry and perform finishing moves. You can also call on your Yokai Minions for help, who will provide buffs, use attack spells and more.
The game will feature multiple different modes, with the Skirmish story mode having you taking on the oni masters to save the world. Yokai Showdown has you pitting your best Yokai Minions against those of other players in a competitive arena mode. Lastly, Samurai Stronghold mode lets the samurai of other players join you to take on the strongest bosses that the game has to offer.
Player progression and customization will be a big part of the game, with players being able to upgrade and customize each of their samurai and their weapons.
World of Demons is in development for iOS and Android devices, and is currently targeting a summer 2018 release. Be sure to check out the announcement trailer below.
