PC game '99 Spirits' from Japanese indie game circle TORaIKI.
99 Spirits, an RPG which was released in Japan earlier this autumn, will be brought to English-speaking audiences by Fruitbat Factory. The game is the first RPG produced by the Japanese indie game circle TORaIKI.
The game revolves around the real Japanese legends of "Tsukumogami", where everyday objects come alive on their 100th birthday.
TORaIKI's 99 Spirits tells the story of Hanabusa, a young headstrong girl living in the Heian capital within medieval Japan. When her mother is slain by evil spirits, however, her life turns into one of vengeance as she sets out to hunt and destroy the spirits. During Hanabusa's travels, she meets a white fox who turns out to be a servant of the mountain god. Hanabusa receives a special sword passed down from her mother, which gives her the ability to see the true forms of spirits to help slay them. Shortly after, a spirit claiming to be Hanabusa's long-lost father, Hidetada, breaks her sword and leaves Hanabusa powerless and confused. Now to mend her broken sword and learn the truth about her father, Hanabusa embarks on a journey to annihilate every last one of the evil spirits.
Fruitbat Factory is promising more than ten hours of playtime with this title. According to the developer, players of 99 Ghosts will do battle with more than 100 monsters and will have the ability to capture them, turning them into allies. Furthermore, players will have the responsibility of not only working out the true identity of your enemies in a unique battle system, but also maintatining both Hanabusa's equipment and dietary needs as she traverses the game's different regions.
99 Spirits is planned to be released on PC in early 2013.
