March 3, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Launching this week as a digital-only title for the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV at $19.99/€19.99/£15.99, Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines received a launch trailer today, giving us some details about the story and showing off a bit of gameplay near the end.

Taking place in ancient Japan after your clan was sentenced to death for crimes they did not commit and had curses placed on them, you have been resurrected as a god and are searching for those who cursed you.

Sony talked a bit about what you can do in Oreshika:

Travel to distant lands of other AI or player-controlled clans. In these far-off lands you can explore new dungeons, find new rare items, discover new gods, combat new demons, and interact with the towns of the distant clans. Within their towns you can purchase exotic items, adopt their members, hire mercenaries to aid you, or form a union with members of other clans.

Invest in your town to invite armorers and weaponsmiths to create heirloom items, which can grow stronger the more they are used and can be passed down the generations.

Unlock secret arts to unleash devastating damage to your enemies and show them the might of your clan.

Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines is a deep and challenging JRPG featuring beautiful artwork come to life, the authentic original voice cast, a game mode that takes an estimated 100 hours of gameplay to complete, and an epic story about finding those who cursed your family and seeking retribution.

As a reminder, if you buy the game within its first two weeks of launch, you’ll receive two additional gods for free, which cannot be normally unlocked within the game.

Are you going to be buying Oreshika this week?
