Remember the mysterious game from the former staff behind the Shin Megami Tensei series? None other than the game in question is Monark.

This game carries the concept of a JRPG with a turn-based strategy-style combat mechanism. The visual concept also reminds players of the Shin Megaten and Persona series, which are thick with darkness. Here, players are tasked with solving strange mysteries that occur at the Shin Mikado Academy school. In order to save other friends, the player must enter the Otherworld, which is filled with creatures that rule the darkness. Monark is set to release on February 22 on PS5, PS4, Switch, and PC.
