A new trailer has been released by SCE Japan Studio showing off the main attributes of all of the eight basic job classes that you can start upcoming RPG Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines with.

At the start of the video we are shown the heavily armoured Swordsman class. Excelling in both attack and defence when amongst the frontlines of battle, the Swordsman is then followed by the Archer – who has power equal to the Swordsman’s and a greater range for attacks.

Similar to the Swordmen are the Naginata warriors. These warriors are able to equip sturdy armour, specialise in attacks that can wipe out the entire frontline of enemies and have the power to go with it!

Next up we have the Spearmen. Although sharing similar attributes to the Naginata, the Spearmen have greater reach and focus more on offence when attacking.


Following the Spearmen are the Dancers. Dancers don’t have much power at their disposal, but they more than make up for it when evading enemy hits and using their fans for wide-ranged attacks. We also see the Destroyer class. Hammer in hand, the sole purpose of the Destroyer class is the explosive power that they yield.

After the Destroyer class we have the Monks. Most effective at close-range where they can put their powerful kicking attacks to use, the Monks do not have much armour but can compensate for this with their evasion skills.

Finishing off the eight classes are the Cannoneers. Packing a punch when attacking from distance, Cannoneers can switch between shots that either target one opponent with a single shot or attack multiple targets with a shotgun-like spread shot.

Following the eight classes we also get a glimpse at two of Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines‘ special classes. At 2:25 in the trailer we see Onigashira. If a character becomes the powerful Onigashira, they will lose the ability to leave behind offspring and will also see themselves erased from the family tree!

To finish off the video we see bits of Nueko, the goddess who sacrificed her life to save the family.

Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines is set to release in Japan on July 17th, with a Western release to follow. Be sure to check The Vita Lounge regularly for news about this interesting-looking RPG but for now, here is the trailer;
