NIS America released a new trailer today for its upcoming game Monark highlighting the fighting and the mechanics of the game. This particular video looks more like a music video than a demo as everything is tuned to the tune of “Pleiades” by Parsley Onuma with voices of Harusaruhi, as we see how the battles play out, as well as the great animations for special moves along the way. Enjoy the video as the game will be released on February 22, 2022 for PC, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.
How far will you go to save your loved ones? Could you face the threats around you? Could you face each other? Your world is steeped in madness as the mysterious and deadly Mist surrounds the Shin Mikado Academy. In order to save your friends, you enter the Otherworld, a dimension filled with Demons beyond the real world. Within this enigmatic realm, you must learn to harness your Authority of Vanity and ward off a battalion of Fiends, whose power comes from their master’s Ego.
Develop your Ego through various psychological tests to improve the potency of your Fiends and lead your forces into battle to fight with and against the seven “Pactbearers” who are corrupting the academy. Embrace the power of your madness to gain strength, but be careful not to go too far lest you risk getting lost. Other students and instructors will assist you in your quest to resolve campus anomalies.
- Descent into madness: Go from exploring the mist of the real world to fighting in the enigmatic Otherworld. Call on allies, fight enemies and unravel the mysteries that surround your academy. Will you save the world or will you go crazy and destroy yourself?
- In the mist and beyond: Immerse yourself in a dark realm where reality and self collide. The mysterious worlds you will explore come to life in a surreal, gloomy neo-fantasy style, with intricate character designs and evocative settings.
- Power of the ego: Boost your ego and customize the appearance and abilities of your Fiends. Unlock different Fiends to command in battle and use the freeform tactical system to position your units and unleash destruction on your enemies.
