‘Onikira: Demon Killer’ – Release date announced

by Kat Wheat

Headup Games and Merge Games have announced the imminent full release of Onikira: Demon Killer for PC. Developed by Irish-based Digital Furnace Games, the game is a 2D side-scrolling, beat’em-up set in a fantasy feudal Japan. Players assume role of Yamazaki Jiro, a lone samurai battling to prevent the forces of the Japanese underworld, Yomi, from taking over the world of the living.

Onikira: Demon Killer blends together complex deep fighting mechanics of traditional 3D beat-em’ups and merges them with classic 2D platformer mechanics. Some will prefer to go toe-to toe with heavy weapons and mash some buttons while other players will prefer a ranged game, avoiding heavy melee encounters and the game’s expressive fighting system enables each player to engage in the way that suits them best. Boasting seven challenging areas, players will be able to express themselves with over 40 uber-cool moves and using four devastating weapons. Each level is littered with foul demons that players must dispatch back to the underworld. Players must also face two mini-bosses and two epic mega bosses.

Onikira: Demon Killer will launch across Steam and other digital stores on Thursday 30th July priced $13.99, £10.59 or €13.99.
