Onigiri, released on PS4, PC, XONE and Switch, is a fantasy action MMORPG. The game was developed and published by a Japanese studio CyberStep, the developers of, among others, a series of GetAmped. Game versions for different platforms don't differ in terms of storyline and gameplay, but they have separate servers: American-Global and European.
The action of Onigiri was set in a fantastical version of medieval Japan, in which people coexist with and mythical monsters, such as Oni or Yokai. Centuries ago, the terrifying Kamikui flooded the world with a wave of death and destruction but was eventually defeated by the sun goddess Amaterasu Oomikami, who forced him to retreat by using three magic seals. After many years, one of the seals was destroyed - Kamikui's return is nigh. We play the roles of Oni leading a peaceful life on the Onigashima island. When their peace is disturbed, they decide to stop Kamikui from enslaving the world again.
In terms of mechanics, Onigiri is a typical Asian action MMORPG where player-controlled heroes explore new regions of the world, perform various tasks and defeat opponents using a highly arcade combat system. Players can be accompanied in the mission by up to eight NPCs with different personalities and abilities, which have a different impact on the hero. Contrary to most similar productions, Onigiri doesn't have a typical class division. When entering the game, players choose one of five features: strength, defense, kindness, courage, and caution, which in turn determine the type of weapon we use. In the course of the game, the heroes gain experience that allows them to develop five basic statistics - strength, vitality, wisdom, mind and dexterity.
Onigiri is characterized by relatively average visuals, which guarantees smooth gameplay. The game also uses a manga graphics style typical for the genre, with scantily-clad female characters.
