Oninaki was one of the new titles announced during last week's Nintendo Direct, and has been the beneficiary of some significant coverage in this week's issue of Japanese magazine Famitsu.
Published by Square Enix and developed by Tokyo RPG Factory, Oninaki is being described as an "intensely shocking title" and is currently around 65% complete; a release is expected this summer.
However, rather more interesting is the news that Takashi Tokita – who served as director and scenario writer on the SNES titles Chrono Trigger and Live A Live – is working on the game as creative producer. Tokita also directed Parasite Eve on the Sony PlayStation, and more recently was director and scenario writer on Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light.
The scenario is in the hands of Hirotaka Inaba, who also performed the same role on Tokyo RPG Factory’s previous titles, I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear. Atsushi Hashimoto (I Am Setsuna) is installed as director, while Ryutaro Sasaki is acting as producer.
