NetEase Games have recently revealed Onmyoji: The Card Game, a Yokai-themed collectible card mobile game developed by NetEase Games and a spinoff of their highly popular IP, Onmyoji. Despite being under the same franchise, the game creates a very different sensation from the original Onmyoji. Not only are the portraits redesigned, but also a new soundtrack is produced, bringing a brand new Yokai feast for Onmyoji fans. Hundreds of top painters and voice actors teamed up to create a hidden world of Yokai while the soundtrack is the work of famous Japanese composer, Satoru Kosaki.
The game is set in the tower ship city called Shinkiro, a mysterious place rumored to be accessible only to Yokai. Hyakubun, a kind of card game is the most popular thing in Shinkiro, where even all the conflicts can be resolved by playing cards.
The game’s strategic core is the combining of Shikigami and its exclusive cards. Each deck is compiled with 4 Shikigami, which are equipped with 8 exclusive cards each. Shikigami will fight in turn in the combat zone, offering a rapidly changing fighting experience.
Onmyoji: The Card Game has prepared a rich variety of game content, including a PVP Ranking System that matches players with a worthy adversary and a Story System that unlocks plots by PVE duels. Players can also open up their store in Shotengai (the Shopping Street), decorate as they would like to. Yokai and Shikigami patrons will give players extra earnings.
Onmyoji: The Card game is scheduled to soft launch its English version later this year in Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, and Australia. The pre-registration phase will open up later this year. Please visit their official social media page for the latest information.
