Oninaki is an RPG game where you play the role of Kagachi, a brooding young man who is a Watcher, a person tasked with ensuring that lingering souls of the dead are properly ushered into the underworld for reincarnation. Watcher's are also supernatural inquisitors who drop judgement and determine how people die, they do this by going back and forth between the Living World and the Veil, an alternate dimension overlapping with the real world that is essentially a spirit world. Check out our walkthrough, guide, strategy page to get help upholding the law of reincarnation.
The Daemon you start the game with is Aisha and if you decide to keep her you will need to boost her to make her powerful enough for the later parts of the game.
You can have up to four Daemons in your party and you will be able to switch between them easily. If you want to switch a Daemon in your party with a new one, you will need to find a save point and change the Daemon from there.
Weapon variety comes from the utilization of the spirits Kagachi has saved so make sure you constantly search through the skill trees of those spirits to choose and craft the Daemons to specifically suit your play style.
Regularly Check your Equipment
Make sure that you keep regularly check your inventory to ensure that you are using the best possible gear at all times. You can keep an eye on what you pick up by using the 'Pause' menu to go to your Daemon list and check your gear for upgrades.
Use Fast Travel
To be able to Fast Travel you need to have access to save points, these look like towers and are scattered all over the game map. When you approach a save point you will be healed by the healing sphere and if you then press X (PS4) or A (Nintendo Switch) you will be able to move through the 'Options' menu and choose the 'Fast Travel' selection and almost immediately travel to any of the saved points you have visited.
You can heal yourself two ways, you can either use healing incenses which you can obtain by defeating enemies or found in chests that are scattered throughout the game or by visiting a save point where you will automatically recover health when you approach one.
Change Difficulty Setting
If you reach a part of the game which you find too tough you can change the difficulty setting to something easier at a save point. Once you have cleared the area you can always go back to the save point and return the game to your initial setting.
