Debuting today, the soft launch trailer delves into the narrative of
Onmyoji took Asian countries by storm when it launched late last
year, topping charts in China, Japan, and Korea with over 200 million

Competitive Game in China. Now, after a closed beta period, the anime
RPG is available in soft launch countries for mobile devices (iOS and
Android). It will launch on PC (Facebook Gameroom and Steam) soon,
offering players the ability to switch seamlessly between their mobile
device and a PC using their same character.
Onmyoji features beautiful anime characters voiced by industry
legends such as Rie Kugimiya (Full Metal Alchemist) and Jun Fukuyama
(Code Geass), who journey to defeat malicious spirits and find balance
between the human and spirit worlds in their role as onmyoji. As players
defeat more powerful enemies, gain more friendly spirits (or shikigami)
to fight by their side, and earn more amulets and experience, they can
level up and customize their unique character.
Join in with your friends to experience the turn-based PvP or PvE combat
and battle mysterious and powerful demons. Each character in Onmyoji,
good or bad, has its own backstory and motivation whether driven by
ferocious loyalty or poignant past trauma. Immerse yourself in the anime
world of Onmyoji and learn of fascinating new characters and
stories while journeying to become the most powerful onmyoji in the land.
