A monk who gained superhuman strength through an extraordinary ordeal. He uses his rugged body to repel attacks and crushes enemies with a giant hammer.
A handsome swordsman on a journey of vengeance. With unparalleled quick draw speed, he rushes enemies with his longsword and dominates them.

In World of Demons, players can recruit defeated yokai through the Yokai Art summoning system and use them in battles. In PlatinumGames style, chaining in simple button presses to pull off elaborate combos is the allure to this new title. There are over 100 kinds of yokai in the game, so the possibilities for creative combos are vast.
