oninaki

Square Enix has shared a new trailer, bundles of screenshots, and info for Oninaki, especially on the various characters in the upcoming RPG. Moreover, the PlayStation Blog has a long interview with creative producer Takashi Tokita.

The Story

In Oninaki, players will journey as Kagachi, a young Watcher who embodies the tenets of reincarnation, and whose sacred duty is to usher Lost Souls into the next world. Upon meeting Linne, a mysterious young girl with no memory of her past, his fate becomes entwined with blood and death. During his journey, players will also meet Kushi, an exemplary Watcher and trusted leader, Mayura, a Watcher with a kind heart, and the malicious Night Devil, a swordsman from a forgotten time who is hunting Linne.

The Characters

Kagachi (voiced by Tomohisa Hashizume)

“In the eyes of the realm, reincarnation is sacred and death must be willing.”

A young Watcher who embodies the tenets of reincarnation. Kagachi considers it his sacred duty to usher souls into the next world—even if it means taking lives. But when he meets a mysterious girl named Linne, his fate becomes entwined with blood and death.

Linne (voiced by Shiori Mikami)

“Our laws were not created to restrain life.”

A mysterious girl who appeared to Kagachi in his youth. Years later, they meet again…though she has not aged a day. She has no memory of who she is, or even her name, so Kagachi calls her Linne, after the linnaea flower.

The Night Devil (voiced by ???)

“Hatred incarnate… A ghost from the past…”

A swordsman from a forgotten time, cloaked in the ink-black flames of damnation. No one knows the true face of this wretched creature, a man forever bound by his own malice. The Night Devil wanders in darkness, hunting Linne in his attempt to unleash his hatred upon the world.

Kushi (voiced by Tsuyoshi Koyama)

“Watchers are who we are, because we are human above all else.”

Though he usually comes across as enigmatic and elusive, Kushi is nevertheless an exemplary Watcher and trusted leader. He is also the man who raised Kagachi. Kushi seldom talks about himself, so few know his inner thoughts, but he makes no attempt to hide his deep affection for his daughter, Mayura.

Mayura (voiced by Lynn)

“We’re here to help you pass into the next world.”

A young Watcher with a kind heart, Mayura is Kushi’s daughter and Kagachi’s childhood friend. She places profound importance on her relationships with others, whether with the souls of the Lost, or the Daemons she manifests. Yet this is also the source of her greatest strife. Standing as she does between the living and the dead, the tensions created by the precepts of reincarnation are a constant struggle for her.
