Everything You Need to Know Before Buying Oninaki on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC

Oninaki review details, price, system requirements, demo save transfer, and everything else you need to know about Square Enix’s latest RPG.

Oninaki is the third game from Tokyo RPG Factory, a studio owned by Final Fantasy publisher Square Enix. Much like I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear were steeped in reverence for the 16-bit SNES era of Japanese role-playing games, Oninaki also pays homage to classic JRPGs while forsaking elements like turn-based combat in favour of a real-time combat system. With Oninaki out on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC this week, here’s everything you need to know.

Oninaki release date

The Oninaki release date is August 22 on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC via Steam.
