Summoners War, the popular strategy game from Com2uS, has recently received an update that introduces two new monsters to the game. They are both inspired by Japanese folklore and you'll be able to get your hands on them both between March 8th and May.

The first of these two units is Onmyouji, who heads into battle using the special power yin and yang. The second is Onimusha who wields a lethally sharp blade. You can check out both of them in the embedded teaser trailer below.
