Monark, trailer of the fights for the new NIS America jRPG


Monark, the new jRPG produced by NIS America, is shown with a trailer dedicated to the fights that gives an idea of ​​how the fights will work in the campaign of the game, due out on February 22 on PC, PS5, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. >
In our preview of Monark we underlined how the title developed by Furyu is clearly and evidently inspired by the Shin Megami Tensei series, which obviously is not bad at all.

The video also demonstrates it above, which illustrates the mechanics of a particularly spectacular turn-based combat system thanks to the wide repertoire of moves available to our characters.

"Will you be able to fight against the Pactbearers ... and madness?" , reads the press release. "Stand by your allies, harness the power of your ego and take up arms against the corrupt forces of the Otherworld in Monark!"

In short, there is no doubt that the game really promises stylistically good: the narrative sector and the thickness remain to be verified, but we will have to wait for the launch scheduled for next February to understand how things are.

MONARK gets a new trailer showing some combat

MONARK has received a new trailer from NIS America with this one focusing on the combat that players will experience. The trailer has a look at a snippet of a battle where characters face off against Pactbreakers as well as the character’s own mind. As you can see from the trailer, MONARK has a turn based combat system with each character having different styles of attack, either being close quarter or ranged.


Those who pick up the Monark deluxe package will get a bonus mini artbook as well as a code for the game’s official soundtrack. Priced at £74.99, the limited edition has its own collectors box as well as a soundtrack disc, cloth poster, a 5 character acrylic stands. Information on how and where to preorder Monark ahead of its release date can be found over on the official NISA store.

Created by Japanese studio Lancarse, Monark definitely has a Shin Megami Tensei vibe about it. In a Persona-like fashion, you’ll spend time socialising and building bonds with allies in one world before being transported to another realm where you engage in turn-based battles.

In our preview for MONARK, Stefan wrote:

“If manga, anime and video games are to be believed, it’s a wonder that anyone actually makes it through the Japanese education system. They’re such a hotbed of weird supernatural calamities, that I’m sure most students are just happy to make it out alive, let alone with the qualifications they need to get a job. In MONARK, Shin Mikado Academy is the latest school to find itself facing disaster, shrouded in Mist as the student body struggles to overcome their own egos and the deadly sins…

There’s some interesting ideas at play in MONARK, with tactical RPG battling, a story that immediately puts an interesting twist on people’s egos and the deadly sins, and more. I’m looking forward to seeing more, to discover how these ideas come together deeper into the story, but it won’t be long before the game is released on 25th February 2022.”

MONARK will be available on PC, PS5, PS4, and Switch.
