RPG Monark, from the makers of Megami Tensei and Shin Megami Tensei, is coming to Nintendo Switch in October

Here comes the confirmation of an interesting new title for Nintendo Switch. The information came today from the people behind the title. It’s Monark, an RPG from the makers of Megami Tensei and Shin Megami Tensei.

According to what was shared, the title will be available on October 14th for 8,470 yen, at least in Japan. We leave you with the confirmed staff and its premise:

  • Planning, production and direction: Fuyuki Hayashi, Mitsuhiro Hoshino
  • Stage: Fuyuki Hayashi, Ryutaro Ito
  • Stage supervision and cooperation: Kazunari Suzuki, Aya Nishitani
  • Character design: so-bin
  • Background music: Tsukasa Masuko
  • Developer: Lancarse
  • Distributor: FuRyu
  • The main character is voiced by Gakuto Kajiwara and the stuffed rabbit character is voiced by Shigeru Chiba.

The story tells the plot of the True Student Council, which was established to resolve abnormal situations in the school. The protagonist, who becomes the deputy head of the council, chooses a classmate from four characters to challenge the unreasonable.

The main story has multiple endings. There are different routes for each of the four friendly characters. To facilitate multiple playthroughs, it is also possible to skip shared routes and advance through different buddy routes.

Battles are command-based with a free-movement turn-based system. Increasing your insanity will allow you to use more powerful abilities, but if you increase your insanity too much, you will go insane and attack both friendly and enemy targets, making the fight impossible.

There is also a system called “EGO”, which represents the player’s desire levels of pride, anger, envy, lust, gluttony and sloth. These change according to the player’s analysis and decisions, and also affect the demons he can employ as his “minions”. The minions’ appearances and voices can be customised.

Finally, it has been shared that on 10 June at 12:00 Japanese time (times for all territories here) we will be able to see the first 4-minute trailer and a video with the background music here. You can also visit the teaser website here.
