In early June we shared details on MONARK, an upcoming JRPG that has multiple Shin Megami Tensei veterans on the development team. It's heading to Switch next year, and now NIS America has unveiled its stylish opening movie - you can check that out above.
This is definitely a game on our radar and its concept seems intriguing; if you need a refresh a story summary and the original announcement trailer is below:
You suddenly awaken in Shin Mikado Academy.
Before you is a barrier separating the campus from the rest of the outside world.
Within the academy grounds are the madness-inducing Mist, cryptic phone calls that connect to the Otherworld, and seven Pactbearers--each with their own Daemonic Authority ruled by their Egos.
To resist the irrationality surrounding you, you acquire the Authority of Vanity, a Daemonic power that subsists off of your Ego and madness

Probably an epilepsy warning is in order, lots of flashing white. That hurt LOL
The singer’s voice is so thin. Should have gotten someone that can sing with breath support.
Love JRPGs, but this seems just a little tooo Japanese for me.
I´ll wait for reviews after launch
Seems like the kind of thing I would've loved 20 years ago.
I'll wait for reviews because right now it looks very generic.
This game oozes SMT If and Persona 1 vibes for me. It's on my radar but SMT V takes priority first
I’m keeping my eye on this, I hope the performance on Switch is acceptable.
The 1st video mentioned a "free movement" battle system. I have never understood the point of say the Dragon quest 11 system that's turn based, yet lets u run around. It makes no difference whether u move or stand still, so I'm glad they didn't force that on us there, but what's the point of just running around in an enclosed area, when it serves no purpose other than putting unnecessary use on ur analog sticks? I hope that's not what this game is forcing on us.
