'Monark' Gets Playable Nintendo Switch, PS4 And PS5 Demo, Digital Pre-Order Available - Trailer

Monark is a new strategy/role-playing game where players not only encounter external dangers, but they also have to face themselves!

Could you face yourself and the threats around you to save the ones you love? Shin Mikado Academy is engulfed in a madness-inducing Mist, and only you can save everyone inside. Develop your Ego to break the pacts set by the Pactbearers and remove the corrupting Mist.

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.

Dive into the mysterious world of MONARK with the playable demo available for PS5, PS4, and Nintendo Switch*!

Command your Fiends in battle, explore the Otherworld, and challenge the Pactbearers. Will you overcome the odds, as well as your madness?
