World of Demons is PlatinumGames' first mobile adventure
A stylish samurai hack n' slash
PlatinumGames is plunging into the mobile scene with World of Demons, an upcoming hack-and-slash game that is set to arrive on iOS. Platinum is pairing with prolific mobile developer DeNA to bring the project to life.
World of Demons is set in a fantasy version of ancient Japan, where brave samurai must fight yokai, legendary monsters from Japanese folklore, who are threatening the land. The game promises to be an action game that gives players full movement throughout the environment to perform impressive attacks and combos. Players can choose from a team of unique samurai, and even command their own host of loyal yokai minions.
An homage to its Japanese roots, World of Demons' visual aesthetic is drawn from traditional Japanese paintings and woodblock prints, lending the game a pop of style. Platinum has even custom fitted the game’s engine to support new graphics technologies to better serve the game’s unique artwork. The graphics look reminiscent of Okami, which was developed by PlatinumGames team members under the now defunct studio Clover.
World of Demons is expected to land on the App Store this summer. An Android version will follow along later in the year. In the meantime, you can check out the game’s official website here.
