One of Oninaki's characters is basically a Dragoon from Final Fantasy


Still coming this month

Square Enix's Tokyo RPG Factory is handling Oninaki, and it's wearing its Final Fantasy influences on its sleeve.

The newest character trailer is for "Zaav," who is literally just a Dragoon from the Final Fantasy series. Jumping abilities? Check. Armor? Check. Lance? Oh you better believe that's a check. Square Enix says he's sturdy enough to take some hits as a medium build character, but is still swift enough to leap around the arena at will. Other playable characters include the axe-wielding offensive "Wil," the rogue-like "Rigan," and the ranged pistol/crossbow-centric "Dia."

You can watch all of them in action below. Oninaki will launch on August 22 on PC, PS4, and Switch.
