Aragami Slinks onto PS4 on October 4

Hello, everyone!

My name is David Leon, and I’m the studio head of Lince Works, the studio behind Aragami. Today we want to announce our release date. Here it goes… Aragami is coming on October 4! To us, this is a huge deal — we’ve been working on Aragami for over two years, and finally we will be able to share our game with PS4 fans worldwide.

In case you haven’t heard about our game, Aragami is a third-person stealth game in which you have the power to control the shadows. As Aragami, you take on the role of an undead assassin who was brought back to life by Yamiko — a princess that is imprisoned by Kaiyo, the army of light. She is the key to bringing you back to life, and also the key to figuring out your past.

Using your shadow powers, you will be able to teleport between shadows, create shadow paths to avoid detection by enemies, create shadow decoys and weapons, and even summon shadow creatures that will strangle or decapitate your enemies.

We’ve catered the game to two distinct playstyles — Ghosts and Demons. Ghosts are the type of players that prefer to be silent assassins that leave no traces behind. Demons, on the other hand, are brutal killing machines that love to vanquish every enemy in the area. Whichever playstyle you choose, you will not be punished for your choice, and if you want, you can mix and match your styles for whatever the occasion calls.

With Aragami, we really wanted to bring that feeling of stealth back into games. Over the last few years, we feel the genre has become a bit watered down. Being spotted by an enemy is no longer cause for an alarm — it doesn’t really matter anymore. We want to change that. We want players to feel real tension — calculating your next move, planning your attack wisely, and using your head as well as your reflexes.

Aragami will give you around 8-10 hours of gameplay, more if you want to find all the collectibles. You will also have the chance to play Aragami with your friend in online co-op. And to all the trophy hunters — yes, there is a Platinum trophy to collect!

Aragami will be available at retail and at PlayStation Store, thanks to our friends at Merge Games Publishing. And there is also a collector’s edition available as well (big thanks to them!).

Thank you for reading and letting us share the news! We are super excited by all of this, and I hope that you guys felt a bit of excitement too. We hope to see you guys in Aragami’s world on October 4! Plus, if you have any comments, feedback, or questions — don’t be shy and let us know what you think below in the comments!

      Im curious what the price will be for regular and Retail.

      Game itself looks like it could be fun from the screenshots but no videos or price or anything is in the store yet

    This looks amazing. Glad to hear that it will have a physical and digital release, as I am a physical collector and when a game really looks to speak to me, I want to make sure I have it in my collection. Is there any info on pricing available? Great work guys, can’t wait!

  • Mercenary09

    Been looking forward to this one. Thanks for including a Platinum trophy as I always feel that makes a game feel just a bit more special. Also huge thanks for doing a retail version. That’s the way I’ll be going.

  • Woo! This one kinda dropped off the radar there and I kept wondering when it was coming. Everything about it screams its a Must Buy! and there are very few of those on my list at the moment.

  • I love stealth games, how much will a digital copy of Aragami cost? Will keep an eye on the title!

  • sandkwithhp

    I’ve been waiting for this to resurface. Looking forward to the release!

  • Wooooo… I took a look at the trailer, and it looks excellent.

  • jason_redemption

    Is it just me or does this game have japanese-indie-assassins-creed written all over it??

  • “Whichever playstyle you choose, you will not be punished for your choice, and if you want, you can mix and match your styles for whatever the occasion calls.”

    Sold

  • Any chance that this is going to be a free plus game for October?

  • The return of Tenchu ;) Bravo à vous qui publiez votre premier jeu, I hope it will be a success. I’ll get both the digital & physical BTW. See you on NeoGAF!

  • Assassin Creed meets Spawn.
    Yes to Physical.

  • TH_Swan_Jon

    This definitely reminds me of the Tenchu series! Definitely will be keeping my eyes on this

  • Always glad to see physical versions!

  • Looks good but the animations seems pretty off.

  • Will surely be getting the physical version of this. Looks right up my alley and will definitely try for the plat since this looks so amazing.

  • Looks sick! I’m feeling a mix between dishonored, assassins creed, and metal gear: all good things. Hope it’s good

  • King_Sardius

    It is TENCHU reborn, awesome!

  • I’ve been waiting decades for a Tenchu game! Aragami sounds too much like Origami though..

  • game looks awesome

  • Gamestop and Amazon showing the physical Collectors edition at 29.99$ but the release date is the 11th. I guess I can wait an extra week for the physical collectors edition, gonna have to pre-order this as I have a feeling there won’t be a lot of copies coming to retail near me.

    at that price point tho, totally Mandatory, Day One buy!

  • Feels a lot like Tenchu.

  • Elimoney1123

    I wish there was a multiplayer local:( but I will be picking this up.
