Sony Computer Entertainment has recently shown off a new trailer for Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines which releases today in Japan.

The trailer begins by explaining how your family’s base will be located in a random location and goes onto tell us that the dungeons around you and the items that you can acquire will follow suit.

In the game you can go on expeditions to neighbouring lands. Each of these lands has its own towns and dungeons that you can explore. Alongside the different kinds of equipment available in the different towns you come across, there will also be new gods for you to encounter in there towns. These gods will help you to expand your family and their traits.


As well as being able to pass on your spirit to your offspring by using the power of the deities, you can also marry characters that you meet in these different lands. By doing this, it is possible that unique abilities are granted to the children that you have.

We are also told that characters from other lands can be adopted and brought back to your family’s home, or they can be hired as mercenaries to help you on your next quest. This means that working with other towns could play a crucial part in ensuring that your cursed bloodline survives.

It has also been revealed that interacting with other players and their lands is extremely rewarding for all parties involved. This is because you will not only be able to find different items and people, but you will earn extra money by having other players visit and shop in your land.


Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines will also allow for you to share special equipment and characters on Social Media sites by using QR codes. It has been hinted that this will have an influence on your game data, although what that influence is we are yet to find out.

With Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines releasing today in Japan and later this year in Europe and North America, be sure to check The Vita Lounge regularly for all the info you will need regarding this title.

For now though, check out the trailer below;

  • This trailer definitely confirms how weird the game looks overall. Can’t beat that art style though. It looks like it’s going to be a pretty cool RPG.

    Apart from Freedom Wars this was second reason I bought my Vita for. I really hope that this game will get physical release in EU but sadly due to the fact that you can’t pre-order it in EU and you can already pre-order it in NA… the chances are once again very small…. so yeah… because I’m not buying digital mumbo jumbo (personal decision)… I’m not sure should I get on this hype train for this game… or not….

    EDIT: oh and I love collector edition for Oreshika in Japan! That nice sticker for front Vita looks great.

      Import! You still get updates, just not dlc.

        But I don’t mind buying DLCs (o,O) usually I like them… so I want to be able to buy and play them.

        Hey I want to give my own money to SCEE… why SCEE doesn’t want it?! Hell I would get it if this was discriminATLUS… but it’s SCEE if they won’t support Vita who the f* will?

        I think that NISA should take place of SCEE 😛 (joking) they are doing much more for EU customers than SCEE

          lol discriminATLUS made my day!!! XD

      • Phelan

        Yup… confirmed Europe will be digital only and there will be DLCs.. huh

  • Jef Curlin

    Looks good! I guess it’s a lucky thing that much of the support for Vita has shifted to Japan as I seem to be developing a taste for Japanese games over western games right now.

    • nonscpo

      Japanese games tend to be better than western games overall in my opinion, assuming that AAA graphics arent your thing.

  • pimlicosound

    No idea what’s going on here, but it looks stunning. I think I want it.
