Fast-Paced Real Time Dungeon x Edo Japanese Yokai Folklore

Form your party (a group of secret agents) from among

four races: Human, Oni, Tengu, and Nekomata. Then

conquer the terrifying and mysterious Yokai-filled castle!

■The Yokai in Hyakki Castle

The game reproduces Yokai from ancient Japanese

literature, including the giant skeleton Gasha Dokuro

and a Yokai made up of a woman's head and arm.

Many creepy and terrifying monsters will appear.

They await your secret agents (players) in Hyakki


Powerful bosses will be unleashed at certain points as

you make your way up through the castle. Aim for the

tower, where the master of the castle awaits!

■Main Theme: Dan no Ura

Dan no Ura, an original song by the Biwa player Sae

Ishida, creates a creepy atmosphere.

■About Real Time Dungeon RPGs

"Real time dungeon RPGs play like an action game, in

which you move around and fight on a floor with a grid

layout. With the exception of some portions, the game

plays out in real time.

When in combat, the enemy won't wait for your attack.

Battle by avoiding enemy attacks and timing your own

attacks at the right moment."

■A Yokai-Filled Castle with Death Looming Around the


The player's secret agents will storm Hyakki Castle,

where formidable Yokai and terrifying traps await.

Be careful. One miss will cost you your life.

Eat the food you find in the castle to survive. An empty

stomach will lower your stats.

There's nowhere to relax in this castle. Eat, sleep,

destroy Yokai, and search the castle.

In the Yokai-filled Hyakki Castle, you're always one step

away from death.

■The 2 Party System

"The game has a split party system that uses the

Tokugawa treasure item Ishin no Ofuda.

The player can freely split up into two parties at any

time (the game will go into split screen mode).

When necessary, split into two teams to deal with the

traps and challenges in the room.

In addition, the party you aren't controlling will use

spells to temporarily harden themselves, increasing their


Attack enemies from the rear to deal massive damage.

Use the hardened party with high stamina as a decoy,

and send the other around to the back."
