Monark JRPG Gets New Allies Trailer Previewing Its Characters

Publisher NIS America released a new “Allies” trailer for its upcoming JRPG Monark. The trailer previews some of the game’s ally characters including Nozomi Hinata, Ryotaro Date, Shinya Yuda, and Kokoro Sugurudai. The trailer also featured the characters’ English voices.

Monark is being developed by former Shin Megami Tensei developers. The game’s staff includes Fuyuki Hayashi (Crystar) and Ryūtarō Itō (Shin Megami Tensei) as the game’s writers, Kazunari Suzuki and Aya Nishitani as scenario supervisors, so-bin (Overlord) as character designer, and Tsukasa Masuko (Caligula) as background music composer. KAF performs the game’s theme song “Nihil.”

Developed by FuRyu and Lancarse, Monark was first announced in June. The game will release for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam on October 14 in Japan and in 2022 worldwide.

NIS America describes the game as:

How far will you go to save the ones you love? Could you face the threats that surround you? Could you face yourself?

Your world is plunged into madness when the mysterious and deadly Mist surrounds Shin Mikado Academy. In order to save your friends, you enter the Otherworld, a Daemon-filled dimension beyond the real world. Within this enigmatic realm, you must learn to harness your Authority of Vanity and conjure a battalion of Fiends, whose power comes from the Ego of their master.

Develop your Ego through various psychological tests to enhance the power of your Fiends, and lead your forces into battle to fight with and against the seven “Pactbearers” that are corrupting the academy. Embrace the power of your madness to gain strength, but take care not to delve too far, lest you risk losing yourself. Fellow students and instructors will lend you their aid in your quest to resolve the anomalies throughout the campus.
