Onmyoji: The World — Fascinating World Adventure RPG Debut

From the team that brought blockbuster mobile and PC title Onmyoji to life comes a brand new cross-platform RPG, Onmyoji: The World. Its cinematic trailer was revealed for the first time worldwide at this year’s NetEase Connect 2021. 

Embark upon a thrilling new adventure through Japanese folklore in Onmyoji: The World, where you’ll play as an onmyoji–a practitioner of a system of science, divination, magic, and more known as onmyōdō, heavily inspired by the Chinese philosophies of yin and yang and wǔxíng. Together, you’ll conjure spirits known as shikigami, to harness the powers of onmyōdō and save a beautiful and cruel world. 

The new trailer illustrates a remarkably detailed kabuki opera performance of Yorimitsu Minamoto facing the king of demons, Shuten Doji. At the climax of the performance, the pluck of a shamisen marks the beginning of an assault on the city.

What appears to be several protagonist characters fend off a horde of puppet-like enemies in a bombastic and fluid combat sequence. The trailer ends with an unnamed character with long black hair from the Minamoto clan going up against the woman who strummed the shamisen.
